What's special

The three islands of the Wuthara group are high continental islands surrounded by 120ha of fringing reefs. With sheltered bays and sandy beaches lying between steep, rocky headlands, the islands offer visitors a remote, nature-based experience.

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.
