Jardine River National Park and Heathlands Resources Reserve
Northern Peninsula Area
Free Entry - Entry Information
In this vast, remote wilderness near the tip of Cape York Peninsula, the sandstone landscape is dominated by the mighty Jardine River and its many streams and swamps, and is rich in Aboriginal and European cultural heritage. Heath, rainforest and woodland cover low sandy ridges separated by swamps. Shrub lands and vine thickets cover massive coastal dunes.
Bush camp at Eliot Falls, beside the Jardine River, or near the coast at Captain Billy Landing and Ussher Point. Enjoy short walks along the creeks at Eliot and Fruit Bat falls, to view crystal-clear water and striking waterfalls. Look for carnivorous pitcher plants and delicate sundews along moist creek margins. At Captain Billy Landing, explore remote scenic beaches.
Children are welcome.
There is access for guests with a disability. Eliot Falls campground has wheelchair-accessible toilets.
How To Get There:
The park is 900 kilometres north of Cairns at the top of remote Cape York Peninsula. Follow the Peninsula Developmental Road then take the historic Telegraph Road or the easier Southern Bypass Road. Four-wheel-drive vehicles and experience in travelling in remote areas are essential. Plan your trip with care and carry adequate food, water, fuel, basic vehicle repair equipment and first aid supplies.
