Moreton Telegraph Station is located on the Wenlock River in the centre of Cape York Peninsula just 293 kilometres from Cape York ('The Tip'), the Australian mainland's most northerly point. The spacious and shady 6 hectare (15 acre) clearing in natural bushland provides ample space for adventurous travellers looking for a tranquil camping spot and hot shower after a hard day's drive. If the urge to sleep in a real bed cannot be resisted, our safari tent options may interest you. The Wenlock River flows all year, although the levels can vary dramatically between the 'wet' season and the 'dry' season. Keen fisher folk can try their luck at catching barramundi, black bream or saratoga but be aware that Estuarine crocodiles may inhabit this river system. Road conditions on mostly gravel roads can vary markedly throughout the year, and we strongly advise you seek up-to-date information and ensure your vehicle is well maintained and equipped for the conditions. Lots of space and plenty of shady campsites are available throughout the well-kept grounds. Fireplaces are established in the most popular campsites (firewood is not supplied - please collect your firewood outside the property prior to arrival). The toilet and shower facilities provide hot showers 24 hours. Power is generator power Pet friendly (Pets must be on leads at all times. Please tidy up after your pet)

Getting There

The public phone out the front is working again which is good to organise a tow back to Weipa with busted shocks. The road from here to the Jardine will wipe the smile from your face, especially those towing big road vans north. Have fun!



Great camping with shady mango trees. The best hot shower we have had in weeks. Lovely friendly staff and the fish & Chips at their food van was great. Nice little 2km walking track for a little exercise

We got here about lunchtime and stayed on a powered site. You don't get as much space as unpowered but we wanted to top up batteries before we freecamped on way up to Jardine ferry. Drive through sites so left car hooked up. We spent the afternoon down the barrahole trying to catch a barra. No luck but we had the place to ourselves and it was beautiful and peaceful. Amenities were clean and despite being busy we never had to queue for a shower or the loo. Friendly staff and lovely little museum by the gift shop. We would stay again
