IRON RANGE NP: Iron Range, or Kutimi Payamu, National Park is one of Australia’s best-kept secrets, and one of the most fascinating places to visit in the Cape York region.
The park is richly bio diverse and home to an astonishing 500 native species, which flourish in the natural sanctuary, isolated from the rest of Australia through the northern summer monsoon.
The park’s jutting granite slopes, with lowlands cloaked in dense rainforest, form an impressive backdrop to the region, which is criss-crossed with a network of pristine waterways ending abruptly with a stretch of pearly white, palm-fringed beaches stretching as far as the eye can see.
The park’s lowlands are home to myriad rare plants and animals, as well as birds peculiar only to this region and Papua New Guinea.
LOCKHARD RIVER AIRPORT: Lockhart River Airport is located adjacent to Iron Range Cabins and services passenger and private flights 24 hours per day, seven days per week.
The airport is equipped with a 1500m sealed and secure all weather runway with 24-hour access.
During the wet season, when road access can be cut off for months at a time, the airport plays a key role in ensuring the community has access to vital services and supplies.
