Kutini-Payamu (Iron Range) National Park (CYPAL) Information

This remote coastal park in northern Cape York Peninsula features long sweeping beaches, rugged heath-clad ranges and the largest area of lowland tropical rainforest in Australia. The park protects a unique collection of wildlife, including mammals, frogs, lizards and snakes that are found nowhere else, and is a refuge for birds that are rare in Australia but also live in New Guinea. Enjoy bush camping by the river or creek in the rainforest, or behind the dunes at Chilli Beach, in the park's popular camping areas. Take the 10 kilometre one-way walk following the Old Coen track through rainforest and open woodland where birdwatching is excellent. At night, spotlight for green pythons and common spotted cuscus. During the day, look for eclectus parrots and palm cockatoos, wander along the white sands of Chili Beach and visit the viewing platform for scenic views of Mount Tozer and surrounding heathland.
