Rinyirru (Lakefield) National Park (CYPAL)

Laura, Cook Area

Journey through golden sandstone hills and sweeping grasslands, boat along scenic coastal estuaries and vast river systems, and delight in flower-sprinkled lagoons and shady waterholes. Relish superb fishing, secluded camping, brilliant birdwatching and stunning photography.

Camping areas are scattered across the park and, with such a range of facilities and locations, it won’t be hard to find the perfect one. Many sites are separate and secluded, hugging the rivers and creeks that cut through the park.

This place is a true paradise for fishers and birdwatchers. The rivers, lagoons and waterholes are alive with fish, enticing visitors to launch a boat or settle in with a rod. The idyllic ecosystems also sustain an array of birds that colour, animate and adorn the park. Remember to bring your binoculars and field guide.

The vast landscape has deep cultural connections. Nine Aboriginal clan groups, made up of at least 75 key families, are linked with this country that is steeped with occupation, ceremonial and story places.

Step back in time to the days of early European exploration, ‘gold fever’ and the booming cattle industry. Walk among relics that spotlight the park's important heritage and connections to explorers, geologists and surveyors.
