First time visitors to Weipa are usually pleasantly surprised by the strong sense of community that exists in the area. With schools from pre-school to Year 12, ours is a youthful population of fewer than 3,000 that is able to take advantage of the fabulous lifestyle afforded by the local geography. Aside from Weipa Bowls Club, there is an abundance of other sporting clubs including basketball, tennis, squash, cricket, swimming and even a motorcycling club and golf course. Fishing and boating are popular pursuits and the Weipa Aquatic Centre offers an ideal venue to keep cool.

For those who prefer spending their leisure time on dry ground, Weipa boasts an unexpected range of shops and services plus a well-appointed library, family movie nights and more.

Since the 1960s, Weipa has been well known as a mining town. In the last ten years, the town has become far more vibrant and now acts as a hub to service the greater Cape York region. The mining industry has invested in quality infrastructure, creating a highly desirable location to visit and live.

Weipa residents believe we live in Paradise and as our sense of community continues to build and flourish, we delight in welcoming visitors to experience what our town has to offer.
