Jardine River National Park and Heathlands Resources Reserve

Northern Peninsula Area

Free Entry 

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.
