Mitirinchi Island National Park (CYPAL) Tropical North Queensland

Mitirinchi (Quoin) Island is a significant seabird breeding island with many species nesting year-round. It is one of only three recorded breeding sites for great frigate birds in the northern Great Barrier Reef and supports a significant nesting colony (over 5000 pairs) of black noddies.

To protect nesting birds, there is no public access to Mitirinchi Island National Park (CYPAL).

This island national park (CYPAL) is jointly managed by the Northern Kuuku Ya’u Kanthanampu Aboriginal Corporation RNTBC Land Trust and the Queensland Government in accordance with an Indigenous Management Agreement. Read more about joint management of Cape York Peninsula national parks.
