Information

About 900km north of Cairns, on the tip of Cape York Peninsula . The park and reserves are located in the remote north of Cape York Peninsula. Most of the roads on the peninsula are accessible by 4WD only.
From Cairns, drive north-west to the Peninsula Developmental Road, the main road to Cape York Peninsula. Follow the Peninsula Developmental Road 50km north from Coen and turn onto the Telegraph Road. Turn east 40km north of the Wenlock River crossing on to the Southern Bypass road. An alternative but rougher route is to continue along the Telegraph Road, which forms the western boundary of Heathlands Resources Reserve. To access the northern part of the Jardine River National Park, from Heathlands Resources Reserve, follow the Northern Bypass road for 36km to the Jardine River ferry crossing and continue for another 10km to the campsites on the river's northern bank. Vehicle access within the park is restricted to the road along the park's western boundary. All roads to and within the park and reserves are suitable for 4WD only. Visitors must be totally self-sufficient. It is advisable to travel with another vehicle and it is essential to carry adequate fuel, basic spare parts, food, water and first aid equipment in case of unexpected delays or breakdown.
