QLD Cape York - Flinders Islands National Park

Off the east coast of Cape York Peninsula in Princess Charlotte Bay lies Flinders Group National Park, a group of seven continental islands with rocky shores, rugged sandstone hills and escarpments, coastal mangroves and sand dunes.

The Flinders Group is part of the sea country of the Yiithuwarra Aboriginal people. Aboriginal rock art sites on the islands include art associated with early European contact.

The surrounding waters are protected in The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.


The Flinders Group lies between Cape Melville and Princess Charlotte Bay. Access is by charter or private boat or seaplane.
