Kowanyama

Kowanyama was once an Anglican Mission, this remote community now services travellers and is well-known as an excellent fishing location as it lies 50 kilometres inland but on the mouth of the Mitchell River.

The Kowanyama Aboriginal Shire Council - Land and Natural Resource Unit - has established locations for camping.

Topsy Creek offers beach and river camping. There are no facilities and numbers and vehicle limits per campsite apply. That just means you get more to yourself.

Within the community there is a motel-style guesthouse and basic services such as a butcher, laundromat, supermarket with petrol and diesel supplies, a tavern, medical centre and police. Regional airlines connect with Cairns.

If you are camping, you will need to obtain a permit for bush camping from the Land and Natural Resource Unit.

Kowanyama has an Alcohol Management Plan (AMP). AMPs aim to reduce alcohol-related violence.

AMPs vary from community to community. They include alcohol restrictions, home brew bans and dry place declarations which operate within a defined boundary, known as a 'restricted area'. These strategies set the quantity and type of alcohol you may possess in the restricted area.

Penalties apply for possessing or attempting to bring illegal alcohol into a restricted area.

To find out more about AMPs for each community, visit the Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Multicultural Affairs web site.
