Northern Peninsula Region Northern Peninsula Region

Welcome to the website for the Northern Peninsula Area Regional Council, known as NPARC. This website presents information on the Council's activities, community and business activities in the Northern Peninsula area, and tourism information on the beautiful unique region of Cape York.

The NPARC region incorporates the communities of Injinoo, Umagico, Bamaga, New Mapoon and Seisia. It is the gateway to the Torres Strait islands and the destination for visitors seeking to visit the very northern tip of the Australian continent. The natural beauty and cultural heritage make the region a jewel in Australia's crown.

From crossing the Jardine River by ferry, to enjoying the camping experience and scenic beauty at Umagico's ALAU beach, Seisia or Loyalty beach, to fishing, visiting the Torres Strait Islands, viewing wildlife in their natural environments, exploring the historical sites of Somerset and WW2 relics, to experiencing the Old Telegraph Track in a 4WD, to observing local works of art; the region offers a unique experience like no other.

NPARC welcomes businesses that provide opportunities for local employment and skill development.

Whether your interest is business or recreational, please enjoy our website and visit us soon.
