Rinyirru (Lakefield) National Park (CYPAL)

Laura, Cook Area

Free Entry 

This iconic remote park has a rich and diverse landscape that features spectacular wetlands and river systems. In the north, grasslands and woodlands, wetlands, coastal estuaries, mangroves and mudflats, are prominent, while in the south, sandstone hills and escarpments dominate the landscape. Lakefield is a wildlife refuge for threatened species including the red goshawk, Lakeland Downs mouse and spectacled hare-wallaby. Hann and Kalpowar crossings are two of the many significant Aboriginal cultural heritage sites found in this landscape.

Bush camp beside a waterhole at one of many camping areas. Take your pick from popular busy camping areas with all facilities or camp sites that are remote bush getaways. Visit the Old Laura Homestead for a brush with the pastoral history of the cape. Fish for barramundi in the waterholes. Take your binoculars and marvel at the diversity of waterbirds at Low Lake. Admire the beautiful lotus-lilies carpeting Red and White Lily lagoons. Explore the Kalpowar discovery walking track or take your bicycle or trail-bike along the network of internal roads throughout the park. This is croc country so remember to be croc wise!
