Cook Shire Council allows camping at Archer Point with the consent of the Traditional Owners. We will continue to allow bush camping in allocated areas until proper infrastructure is put in place and a formalised camping arrangement is developed. However, there are restricted access areas.  For further information please contact our office on (07) 4069 6957 or visit during business hours at 142 Charlotte Street, Cooktown.

We ask people camping at Archer Point to please respect the area, including taking all rubbish when you leave,  not cutting down trees, keeping dogs restrained and not taking other animals such as horses. 

Our outlook is to look after and better manage the country so that we can all continue to enjoy the area in the future. There are a number of cultural sites at Archer Point and we are developing plans and will be working with Cultural Heritage officers to better manage these sites to protect them from further deterioration.

Please be careful whilst at Archer Point – if we all treat the area with respect, it will be more pleasant for everyone to enjoy.
