Weipa is the gateway to the western Cape York region, which offers visitors an exciting mix of beautiful beaches, wilderness adventures, fabulous fishing and rich cultural heritage. There’s no shortage of things to do in the area, and most of them involve outdoor activities and stunning surroundings. The Cape is home to some of Australia’s best fishing spots. You can catch queenfish, grunter, barramundi, salmon, cod, snapper, mangrove jack, trevally and spanish mackerel, only to name some more common species. Weipa is a little over 800km from Cairns, via the Peninsula Developmental Road (PDR). It’s a good idea to check the condition of the road prior to travelling, especially during the wet season when heavy rain can cause it to close. A daily Qantaslink air service operates from Weipa to Cairns, from where you can connect with southern flights. Weipa Airport is located just 15 minutes from the township. There are also several charter airlines servicing Weipa which are available for passenger and freight transport. Crocodiles inhabit the waterways in and around Weipa, so it is important to maintain vigilance when around bodies of water.
