Travel to Weipa
Your Emirates flight will land at Weipa Airport, located 13km from the town centre, or a 10-minute drive. Taxis are available for hire at approximately AUD 50.
Fly with Emirates to the Gulf of Carpentaria and visit Weipa, the largest town on the Cape York Peninsula. Since its original establishment as a Presbyterian Aboriginal mission outpost in 1898, the town has grown significantly due to the discovery of bauxite in 1955. An integral component of aluminum, bauxite has made Weipa into the mining town that it is today. While the mining industry is booming, Weipa’s population has remained relatively small, leaving the region’s surrounding wilderness largely untainted. Visitors to Weipa will love the wide array of wildlife and ideal fishing conditions in the gulf.
