Facilities and activities

The Traditional Owners of Bromley (Ampulin) National Park (Cape York Peninsula Aboriginal Land (CYPAL)) and Bromley (Kaanichi) National Park (CYPAL) ask that you respect their special place. The park is jointly managed by Bromley Aboriginal Corporation and the Queensland Government.

Location

Located on Cape York Peninsula, the park is broken into two sections—Bromley (Ampulin) National Park (CYPAL) (north) and Bromley (Kaanichi) National Park (CYPAL) (south). The north section, Ampulin, is approximately 50km north-east of Moreton Telegraph Station and the south section, Kaanichi, is approximately 30km south-east of Moreton Telegraph Station.

What's special

Bromley (Ampulin) National Park (CYPAL) and Bromley (Kaanichi) National Park (CYPAL) is part of an extensive living cultural landscape that is rich in traditional and contemporary cultural significance for Traditional Owners.

Stories about events and everyday life on this land have been passed down by Traditional Owners through the generations. Traditional Owners hold these stories sacred—they are important for connecting people to Country.

The area features giant white silica sand dunes and perched lakes north of the Olive River. In the Temple Bay area there are coastal heaths and wetlands. Sandstone ridges, escarpments of the Glennie Tableland and a mosaic of rainforest and eucalypt woodlands can be found in the ranges north of the Pascoe River.  

The natural heritage of the land includes some species that are locally endemic, such as the sandhill cycad that occurs under the canopy of hoop pine dominated forests and the fire-tailed rainbow-skink found only on the Glennie Tableland.

There is currently no access, camping or visitor facilities within Bromley (Ampulin) National Park (CYPAL) and Bromley (Kaanichi) National Park (CYPAL).
