Sadd Point


Sadd Point is a remote spot in northern Cape York.

It is one of the remotest places in Cape York, and also one of its best kept secrets!


It is even further in than the already remote Ussher Point - there is a left-hand turnoff along the same track.

It is quite a long drive but it's all worth it!


Once you arrive and see the rainforest and the white-sand beaches,
you really understand why :-)


Fishing and mud crabbing are also great, there is only one downside - sand flies, unless it's windy.

There is a turnoff along the road to Ussher Point - turn left if you're coming in, and right if you're returning from Ussher Point.

The vegetation gets greener and turns into quite a jungle before you get to Sadd Point.

The rainforest is thick and beautiful. Although it seems to be a small pocket only, it gives plenty of shade.

The buoy decorations, usual for this part of Cape York, are hanging in trees with the names of some previous visitors.

   sadd point

Sadd Point is at a river mouth, which is a great place to fish and mud-crab when the tide is high. There is a rope ladder down the cliff that gets you down without having to walk around.

Some large tuna, mackerel, queenfish, trevally and salmon have been caught here, only to name the latest.

   sadd point beach

The beach is beautiful, the blue waters and white sands look great. There is only one thing - sandflies, so bring proper repellent.

   sadd point beach shack

There is an old beach shack to discover, and there is not so much more, but if you are into fishing, and even better if you brought a boat, you can really enjoy it!
