Accessible by an hour’s scenic flight over Van Diemen’s Gulf the Cobourg Peninsula is prime Australian wilderness.

Its mosaic of sandy beaches, mangroves, rainforest and sea grass meadows support a rich marine life from dugongs to loggerhead and Olive Ridley turtles.

Exploring the peninsula

Kangaroo, The Cobourg Peninsula
Home to the Aboriginal clans of Agalda, Ngaindjagar, Madjunbalmi and Muran, the spiritual link with the land and sea is still prevalent. From Gunners Quoin headland the view over the reefs is awesome, with soaring sea eagles, crocodiles and giant manta rays cruising below.

Head west along the coast and pass curiously shaped rock formations before reaching a small paper bark swamp forest where banteng cattle and wallabies come to drink.

A feast for nature lovers, this peninsula offers an incredible diversity of environments.
