Mapoon is located on the Western Coast of the Peninsula on the Gulf of Carpentaria. By 4WD vehicle it is approximately 45 minutes north of Weipa.
The important feature of the town is that it is well spread out unlike many other cape communities where housing plans are in grid fashion. Mapoon is rich in natural beauty and is renowned for the abundance of "Bush Tucker." It is all of these features that set Mapoon aside and as long as Mapoon's innovative town plan continues, its history is respected and the wishes of the community are heard, Mapoon's future is assured.
The fishing is great!
