Cedar Bay National Park is a remote coastal rainforest park in tropical far North Queensland. Cedar Bay is part of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area, with most of the park untouched pristine wilderness. Cedar Bay National Park is only accessible by boat or walking. Add to Description →
Given its inaccessibility, aerial photos of Cedar Bay, Rattlesnake Point and Obree Point are the main ways to appreciate its unique beauty. Its beaches are snow white sand; with water so clear you can see the edge of the continental shelf through the waters. These waters are protected marine parks to protect their unique biodiversity, so fishing and collecting in the area is prohibited.
The deep lush green rainforests around Cedar Bay are home to the endangered southern Cassowary and Bennett’s tree kangaroo.
Cedar Creek entered infamy when the peaceful hippy communes that existed in Cedar Bay were stormed by armed troops and police in August 1976, and had their tents and humpies burnt. When the area was heritage listed, the last of the communes were peacefully moved on.
