Things to do
Camping and accommodation
Camping is currently not permitted in Olkola National Park (CYPAL).
There is accommodation available in and around Laura, Coen and other locations along the Peninsula Developmental Road. For more information see the tourism information links.
Nukakurra Lagoon walking track
Fishing is prohibited in all freshwater streams, lagoons and creeks of this national park (CYPAL).
Nukakurra Lagoon and Eight Mile Creek are located along the Nukakurra Lagoon walking track and provide a great opportunity for visitors to see freshwater turtles and waterbirds. During the dry season, as water becomes scarce across the landscape, wildlife congregate around remaining waterholes to feed. Please remember that crocodiles occur in this park, so visitors must take precautions.
Always Be Crocwise in croc country.
