Information

Paradise Bay Campground is located in Barranyi (North Island) National Park, an island that has a picturesque coastline with sweeping sandy beaches, small coves and sandstone cliffs. Pets are not permitted in the Park.
The Park plays an important role in the preservation and protection of culture and tradition of the Yanyuwa Aboriginal people.

Access is by vessel only, via a 35 km journey along the McArthur River and Carrington Channel to reach Gulf waters. The closest launching site for vessels visiting the Park is at King Ash Bay, accessed via Borroloola along a formed gravel road. Moderate to strong southeasterly winds prevail during the Dry season making the shallow waters of the Gulf quite rough and extremely hazardous.
The Wet season is dominated by northwesterly winds and both cyclones and severe wind squalls are a possibility.
