QLD Cape York - Cape Melville National Park

Wild coastal scenery is protected in remote and rugged Cape Melville National Park on Cape York Peninsula. Tropical rainforest, mangroves, heathlands, woodlands and grasslands grow in this park.

Because the park is so remote and isolated, many plants and animals are found nowhere else, such as the rare and unusual foxtail palm, now a popular garden plant in northern Australia.


Cape Melville is on the eastern end of Bathurst Bay. The park’s western boundary is 85km north-east of Lakefield Ranger Station
