Clump Mountain National Park also holds historical significance for both
Indigenous and European people. Part of the traditional country of the Djiru
Aboriginal people, the nearby Bingil Bay was a favourite camping spot, whilst
the rainforest plants were an integral part of the the culture providing fish
nets, shelters, tools, weapons and medicines.
The summit of Bicton Hill was used as a lookout by the Djiru Aboriginal people,
as well as a ship lookout by the Cutten brothers, the areas first permanent
European residents. They named their property Bicton after the town in Devon,
Camping is not permitted in the Clump Mountain National Park. Visitors can find
a range of accommodation in the nearby Mission Beach, Tully and Cardwell.
