Chilli Beach - Iron Range National Park

Located around halfway up the east coast of Cape York, Iron Range National Park contains Australia’s largest remnant of lowland tropical rainforest, a haven for rare birds, butterflies and over 1500 plants. Chilli Beach is the prime destination in the park and is roughly a 130‑kilometre four-wheel-drive diversion off the main road to Cape York. The beach is famous for its chain of coconut palms planted by missionaries and there is a lovely camping spot behind the beach (to avoid injury, remember not to camp beneath the coconut palms). The pale sand stretches for kilometres and offers great walking, fishing and beachcombing (watch out for crocodiles).
