Summary

The Kimba Plateau on Cape York is a naturally and culturally significant area, including its geodiversity and geo-evolution values. Olkola country exhibits a high diversity of geology, soils, flora and fauna associated with the meeting of Gulf Plains, Coen Inlier and Laura Basin. The Kimba Plateau is a rugged and remote landscape that provides an important refuge for sensitive plant and animal species.


This project involved Traditional Owners working with an ethnobotanist from the Queensland Herbarium, vegetation ecologists, botanists, spatial experts, geologists and wetland experts to assist in the understanding of the significant landscape for which they are custodians. It will also involve the recording of traditional knowledge and cultural sites for the purpose of facilitating knowledge transfer.
