Flinders Group National Park

Cooktown, Cook Area

Seven remote and ruggedly attractive islands, with a rich cultural landscape, form Flinders Group National Park.

The islands lie adjacent to Cape Melville and are within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

Visit the islands on a commercial cruise vessel or in your private boat. Walk the 2.8 kilometre interpretive trail to learn about the Yiithuwarra 'saltwater people'. Contemplate their rock art in the Ship and Yindayin rock shelters on Stanley Island (Yindayin). Bush camp on Flinders Island (Wurriima). Watch seabirds and look for turtles and dugong. Enjoy the remoteness of this unique park.
