Oyala Thumotang National Park (CYPAL)
Formerly known as Mungkan Kandju National Park, this large park stretches from the McIlwraith Range foothills, between the Archer and Coen rivers, and features open eucalypt woodlands, melaleuca swamps and a variety of rainforest types. This park is a living cultural landscape, rich in significance for the Aboriginal Traditional Owners.
Bush camp at one of several secluded camp sites. Go birdwatching around waterlily-covered lagoons and forest-fringed riverbanks. Go spotlighting in the rainforest to see the common spotted cuscus. Drive to the Old Archer Crossing, the historical site of the main access to northern Cape York Peninsula. Ride mountain bikes or trail bikes or drive your 4WD through the park’s network of internal roads. Try your luck fishing in the park’s many creeks and lagoons. Remember to always be croc wise.
