Welcome

The Aboriginal Traditional Owners of Flinders Group National Park (Cape York Peninsula Aboriginal Land), the Cape Melville and Flinders Island People, welcome visitors to their country and ask that they respect this very special place.

Location

About 340km north of Cairns, adjacent to Princess Charlotte Bay off eastern Cape York Peninsula.

What's special

Rugged yet attractive, the remote islands of Flinders Group National Park (CYPAL) share their geology with the spectacular Cape Melville on the mainland, and contain some of Australia's most significant Aboriginal cultural sites.

Flinders Group National Park (CYPAL) is owned by the Cape Melville, Flinders & Howick Islands Aboriginal Corporation and jointly managed with the Queensland Government in accordance with an Indigenous Management Agreement and other land management arrangements.
