Welcome to Kowanyama Aboriginal Shire Council's Website

The Kowanyama Aboriginal Shire Council community lies 25 km (as the crow flies) from the West coast of the Gulf of Carpentaria in the South-Western region of the Cape York Peninsular, and 600 kilometres North-West of Cairns. The community is on the bank of the Magnificent Creek, which joins the South Mitchell River and in turn forms part of the Mitchell River Delta system.
