The Jardine River National Park is a national park in Queensland, Australia, 2,137 km (1,328 mi) northwest of Brisbane and about 900 km (559 mi) northwest of Cairns, on the tip of Cape York Peninsula.
The park and reserves encompass the traditional country of several Aboriginal groups including people from the Atambaya, Angkamuthi, Yadhaykenu, Gudang and Wuthathi language and social groups. The area is a living cultural landscape, with places and features named in Aboriginal languages, story-places and story-beings, and occupation and ceremony sites throughout. Today the traditional owners retain a strong and continuing interest, through their traditional rights to, and responsibilities for, the land, in the protection and management of the area.
