Weipa & Cape York Queensland - Wall Art

Fine Art Gallery Collection of Weipa and Cape York themed photography, paintings, drawings, digital and mixed media artworks by Joan Stratton - Paintings by Joan. Weipa is a remote town on the Gulf of Carpentaria which is on the west coast of Cape York Peninsula, Queensland, Australia. The Alngith people are the traditional owners of Weipa and the site has significant indigenous cultural history and heritage areas. The name "Weipa" is derived from the Anhathangayth Aboriginal language. It comes from "Waypa" which means "fighting ground". The area became a Presbyterian mission in 1898 and was established as a town in 1967 by Comalco, an Aluminium based company who mined bauxite and kaolin in Weipa. The town was established to house its employees and their families, government workers and support people for its operations. Weipa has the largest Bauxite deposit in the world. We have two seasons, wet and dry or hot and bloody hot! Fishing enthusiasts, tourists going to the tip and twitchers flock to Weipa because of its wonderful coastal location and abundant marine and bird life. For birds of Weipa please refer to my Bird Collection. Welcome to my home :)
