None unfortunately. I have spent a bit of time on the other side of the Gulf in Groote and Gove. Not many people to climb with other there either. There is however alot of small rock outcrops, and particularily granite tors. Some of it was OK to boulder. The bauxite outcrops around Gove were higher, but really crumbly.
As you can escape from Weipa with a decent 4WD, and access coastal areas with a boat, it wouldn't hurt to ask the locals. They probably wont know the difference between choss & decent rock, but it is a start.
Are you going to work for Comalco? Ask for a window seat when you fly over to look at the place.
