Weipa Accommodation


On this page you have Weipa accommodation.

It is relatively expensive
, for the obvious reason - it's a mining town (so their costs are high, too).


Plus - there is not a huge lot to choose from, and you cannot expect city standards as we are in a remote place.


weipa hotels

Weipa Hotels
If you are after a good old traditional Australian hotel - Weipa lacks one
There is one with a public bar in Trunding, and if you compared to a country pub, the rooms will not disappoint you and there is even an a la carte restaurant.

weipa motels

Weipa Motels
There are also no real motels like you would be used to from other parts of Australia.

There is, however at least one where you can park your vehicle in front of the door of your room which is really handy on a trip where you live out of your car (all the details are in the Destination Guide).

weipa resorts

Weipa Resorts
The resort of the town is also not a city resort standard or style, but is clean and friendly and has a swimming pool and a restaurant.

It is Asian style (at least with the current owner), which makes it different from the others in Weipa.


weipa camping ground

Camping Ground
But most Cape York travellers look for somewhere to camp.

There is an excellent beachfront camping ground which also has cabins, donga and lodge rooms as well as a swimming pool and an onsite restaurant.


weipa apartments

Rent Weipa Apartments
Want to stay longer? You gotta be keen! It is an expensive place and not worth for most people unless you work in the mine. 

But there are a few places where you can pay weekly or monthly, detail is in the Destination Guide.

Buy Weipa Real Estate

As in many mining towns, renting is more common than owning (because of the large number of workers).
But new areas with privately owned homes do exist. Buying a place is expensive, you do pay a lot more than you would for the same house in say Cairns (and other places
south of the peninsula).


Weipa Hotels

The hotel has a public bar,
