Cape Upstart National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
Small isolated and little known, the Cape Upstart National Park is only for the adventurous bushwalker.

Located 30 km north of Guthalungra access to the park is by boat only. The location was originally named by Captain Cook in June 1770 on his voyage of discovery up the Queensland coast. An observatory was established in the park at one time and would still make for a wonderful light pollution free observatory location.

Thick bush, vine thickets, wetlands, with some heath surround an imposing granite headland fringed by sandy beaches. Native animals are plentiful. The surrounding property a former cattle station is being returned to a more natural state with assistance from the National Parks & Wildlife Service.

Contact the local Parks and Wildlife Service or visit the QLD National parks, marine parks and forests website. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
