Abstract

[Extract] Key findings based on a visitor survey undertaken between October 2008 and April 2010. Emmagen Creek is located in the northern section of Daintree National Park, approximately nine kilometres north of Cape Tribulation Village and seven kilometres north of the popular Kulki visitor site. Emmagen Creek is the last visitor site in the Daintree National Park and the first creek crossing on the Bloomfield Track. The traditional custodians of the area are the Eastern Kuku Yalanji. Many of the vehicles that pass through the site are driven by locals. The site is undeveloped with no built facilities apart from a sign indicating the presence of crocodiles and a short track that connects the road to a freshwater swimming hole. Car parking is available along the side of the road.
