Weipa is undoubtedly the Barramundi capital of Australia, with lots of 1m monsters cruising the tropical waters. But there’s more than just Barra, there’s a whole lot of trophy fish waiting for you up here. Epic jacks and macks, trout and trevally, salmon, fingermarks, queenies and more. At Weipa Camping Ground we can hook you up with a local fishing charter, or give you advice on the best place to try your luck. Scenic heli flights reveal the vast beauty and wilderness of Weipa and the Western Cape.

There’s a range of durations and destinations, from 10 minutes to 1 hour. You can scout over wetlands and see croc tracks, take in the stunning contrast of Weipa’s red cliffs against the clear blue Arafura Sea, or take a full day heli tour from Weipa to The Tip and back again. Heli flights, eco tours, mine tours, sunset cruises and a cultural centre, these are just some of the many things you can do while staying in Weipa.


Buckle up for some seriously jaw dropping scenery when you book a scenic heli flight over Weipa and its surrounding areas. This is definitely the best way to see the red cliffs south of Weipa, which drop down to azure blue seas, fringed with white sand. Our skilled pilots are licensed and experienced at low level flying, which offers the chance to observe local wildlife in their natural habitat.
