Weipa is about 4m above sea-level. Most of the Cape is below 100m. Better to fly down to Townsville for a few days on Mt Stuart! The rock outcrops described by Greg Child are in fact pretty extensive. They are however EXTREMELY significant to the local indigenous communities.Besides the significance to local people, the caves and shelters contain cultural materials and artworks which are internationally significant and PROTECTED BY LAW. It would be foolish and insensitive to try climbing without asking permission. If you approached a council with some tact you may get permission, but probably not. Outcrops on private/leased land may offer some promise but the above warning concerning cultural significance and protective legislation still apply. The following is a list of the main councils Aurukun; Bamaga; Doomadgee; Hope Vale; Injioo; Kowanyama; Lockhart River; Mapoon; Mornington Island; New Mapoon; Pormpuraaw; Torres; Umagico; Weipa; Wujal Wujal: all of these are run by Aboriginal people and each represents dozens more tribal and clan groups within which are individual traditional owners and custodians of particular places.
