Cape York Peninsula is a large remote peninsula located in Far North Queensland at the tip of the state of Queensland, Australia, the largest unspoilt wilderness in northern Australia and one of the last remaining wilderness areas on Earth. Although the land is mostly flat and about half of the area is used for grazing cattle, and wildlife is threatened by introduced species and weeds, the relatively undisturbed eucalyptus wooded savannahs, tropical rainforests and other types of habitat are now recognized for their global environmental significance.
Seisia Island Community lies within a small DOGIT area granted in 1986 by the Queensland Government at Red Island Point. The community has a permanent population of about 100 people and is situated at the most northerly deep-water port on Cape York Peninsula. Seisia is popular as a destination for anglers and a number of fishing charter operators use Seisia as their base. A campground at Seisia is utilized by about 50 per cent of camping travelers to Northern Cape York Peninsula.
