Weipa Camping Ground ~ The Perfect Place To Relax, Replenish & Rejuvenate

Weipa Camping Ground is an oasis amongst the red dust of Cape York Peninsula. From the entrance, you’re greeted with long, tropical palms, lush green grass and the sparkling waters of the inground saltwater pool, equipped with a gentle and soothing waterfall. When you stay here, you’re surrounded by nature and can wake up to the birds singing or dolphins playing along the foreshore, while still being within walking distance of the local shops, which includes a Woolworths, Tackleworld, camping store, bakery, butcher and newsagent. By day you can do one of the many local tours, indulge in first class fishing and off roading, or just relax and refresh. Of an afternoon / evening, you can grab a bite to eat from our onsite café Barramunchies, while enjoying the seriously stunning Weipa sunsets – you may even see a crocodile floating by in the distance.

Weipa, on the north-western cape, is a key part of every Cape York adventure. This is where the bush meets the beach, and red plains and cliffs merge into sandy straights, with the blue, blue waters of Albatross Bay and the Arafura Sea beyond.

The waterways are teeming with fish, big fish, of all types. The trophy species of barramundi, mangrove jacks, mackerel and more are here, as are tuna, salmon, cod, trout and trevally. Cast your own line or hook-up with a guided fishing charter. There’s sunset and wildlife cruises, mine tours, cultural tours and more.

The people are friendly, the sunsets are epic and our town of Weipa has everything you need to make your trip to the Tip, an enjoyable one. Fuel up, stock up and attend to any vehicle repairs / parts replacements you might need. Swim in our swimming pool, soak up the serenity and enjoy our facilities. Please note it gets busy in peak seasons and school holidays, so please book ahead to avoid disappointment. We’ll see you in Weipa.
