Are there currently restrictions on travel to Weipa related to COVID-19?

Yes, there are currently restrictions on flights to Weipa along with the rest of Australia. Before you book or search for flights, consider the following restrictions: Australia has restricted the entry of all travelers, with the exception of Australian nationals and permanent residents and their immediate family members, New Zealand nationals residing in Australia, diplomats accredited to Australia and residing in Australia and their immediate family members, and airline crew. Nationals of the Cook Islands, Fiji, French Polynesia, Kiribati, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia (Federated States), Nauru, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, American Samoa, the Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu can transit through Australia to a third country without a visa. The same applies to travelers who reside in the Cook Islands, French Polynesia, or New Caledonia. The onward flight must be within 72 hours of their arrival in Australia. If there are less than 8 hours between flights, travelers must stay in the international transit area of the airport and have documents required for the next destination. If there are more than 8 hours between flights, travelers must stay in mandatory quarantine at a state designated facility until the time of the departing flight. All travelers entering Australia must self-isolate for a period of 14 days from their arrival into Australia. If the duration of their stay is less than 14 days, they must self-isolate for the entire duration. Airline crew who are nationals or residents of Australia must self-isolate at their place of residence (or hotel) between flights, or for 14 days, whichever is shorter. Airline crew who are not nationals or residents of Australia must self-isolate in their hotel on arrival until their next flight. Nationals of Australia are not allowed to travel out of Australia, except for people who regularly reside in another country, airline and maritime crew, freight personnel, offshore facility personnel, government personnel, and Australian Defence Force personnel. . If you are looking to book a trip to Weipa and are outside of the restricted areas, please take the proper precautions and stay informed about travelling during COVID-19.

When is the best time to fly to Weipa?

Being in the north of Queensland, the town enjoys a sub-tropical climate, so there is a “wet season” to contend with, which some visitors may want to avoid. The vast majority of the town’s rain falls between November and April, and for the rest of the year the weather is hot and dry – perfect for fishing and golfing. With hot, but not oppressive conditions, July is the ideal time to go.

City overview

Located on Queensland’s beautiful Cape York peninsular, Weipa is a fabulous place to unwind. Fish, play golf, hike and cycle – eat delicious fresh seafood or simply relax in the pure waters of the Gulf of Carpentaria.

The town’s major appeal is its setting on the coast of Cape York, and the abundance of marine life that the coast supports. This makes Weipa a superb place to charter a fishing boat or head out with an expert guide to catch exotic local inhabitants like barramundi or queenfish.

Take your catch and grill it on the beach, and wash it down with some of Queensland’s world famous wine, or a classic Australian beer – in one of the most tranquil coastal towns in Australia.

However, Weipa isn’t all about peace and quiet. Visitors can head into the outback on 4×4 adventures, rent canoes and paddle around the coast, try bungee jumping or sky-diving. They can also head to some of the state’s best golf courses, such as Carpenteria Golf Club, where great playing conditions are on offer all year round.

The area around the town has been a leading industrial centre, producing huge amounts of aluminium ore. Nowadays, the industry has been cleaned up, but visitors can take the fascinating Rio Tinto Mine Tour.

The town is also a great place to experience Australia’s fantastic animal life. Head to the Uningan Nature Reserve to see ancient aboriginal sites, as well as some of the region’s exotic bird species. The nature reserve is also an excellent place to spot crocodiles, another of the region’s charismatic inhabitants.

However, more than anything else, Weipa is a place where visitors can kick back and relax in the reliable Queensland sunshine – away from civilization and all of the stresses of home.

Getting around Weipa

Weipa is small enough to be extremely easy to see by foot. Cycling is also recommended, with many attractive coastal trails to explore. For those seeking to head into the interior, hiring a rugged four-wheel drive vehicle is a good idea, but take plenty of water and a reliable map with you.

Getting from the Airport to the City

Weipa is a fairly isolated town, and the vast majority of people will arrive by plane to Weipa Airport (WEI). International travellers can fly to other major Australian airports, such as, Cairns Airport (CNS) and Brisbane Airport (BNE), then get a connecting flight to Weipa. Public transport is limited, so you may need to enquire with your hotel to find out whether they offer a shuttle bus service from the airport. Taxis can be booked via the arrivals desk, and the town centre is only about ten minutes away.
