Cape Upstart National Park Whitsundays

Proposed renaming of Cape Upstart National Park

The department is proposing to rename Cape Upstart National Park to Budgenerra National Park, the preferred name of the Juru Native Title holders. Find out more and have your say.

Flanked by sandy beaches, Cape Upstart is an imposing granite headland covered in a range of vegetation types from vine thicket to heath. Significant areas of beach scrub and coastal dunes are also protected in the park.

This is an important meeting place for Indigenous people from the Cape Upstart area and surrounds.

The surrounding waters are part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.
