Cape York Camping Punsand Bay is the ultimate base for any Cape York adventurer, angler, beachcomber, birdwatcher or history buff looking to explore and discover the Cape York Peninsula and Torres Strait Islands. 

Situated 5km west of “The Tip” of Cape York Australia, it is the most northern address in Australia. The unique geographical position makes Punsand Bay one of Australia’s untouched wildernesses with an abundance of wildlife. Watch the sun rise out of the Coral Sea in the Pacific Ocean and set over the Arafura Sea in the Indian Ocean.

The beachfront camping ground, accommodation, restaurant and bar overlooks the golden sand beach and turquoise waters of the Arafura Sea, Torres Strait Islands and northwards to “The Tip” of Australia.
