NPARC aims to provide a range of Local Recreational Services and facilities for both Local residents and visitors. Facilities are spread between the communities, and are open to each community.

 

 

Football
Football is a very popular pastime in the NPA, especially rugby, though recently many players have begun to play AFL as well. Sporting ovals can be found in each of the communities. The most Northern Queensland AFL field is found in New Mapoon.
The NPARC Events team and volunteers organises regular sporting matches that run year-long football matches based at the Bamaga Yusia Oval, including the once a year special Dan Ropeyarn NPA Cup Carnival.

Bamaga Swimming Pool provides a safe and relaxing alternative to escape the heat.

Seisia Wharf
The Seisia Wharf is a popular spot to go fishing. The Wharf offers beautiful sunsets and views of small islands across the water. It's strongly advised you do not swim here, as there are many crocodiles, sharks and stingrays in the water. Seaswift uses the Wharf to deliver NPA’s businesses and residents mail, ordered items, groceries etc. Peddells Ferry Services also uses the Wharf as a Departure and Arrival base for the Ferry to and from Thursday Island. For Ferry prices and/or the Ferry Timetable. Search

The Community Development Employment program constructed an All Abilities Playground in the heart of New Mapoon. The playground officially opened in 2011. Artworks, mosaics and gardens have been installed in the playground area. The artwork tell the tales of Local dreaming stories, family totems and unity.
