Mapoon Aboriginal Shire Council

Mapoon is a coastal town in the Aboriginal Shire of Mapoon and a locality split between the Aboriginal Shire of Mapoon and the Shire of Cook in Queensland, Australia.

Mapoon Aboriginal Community is located at Port Musgrave, western Cape York in Far North Queensland, Australia.

The community differs from many other Cape communities in that the quality government built residences are spread out in bushland along Red Beach Road towards Cullen Point rather than being clustered together.

During the wet season from December to April the area is largely inaccessible except by air and sea.
