Cook Shire is the largest shire in terms of land area in Queensland. From the Bloomfield River in the south to just north of the Jardine river it covers over 100 000 square kilometres and occupies 80% of Cape York Peninsula.
Geographically the Cook Shire is the meeting place of the Great Barrier Reef, the Wet Tropics and the Outback. It is the location of many National Parks along with other protected areas and conservation zones.
Cook Shire has a tough and colourful past built around agriculture and mining. Today we still have a vibrant culture and peoples from across the country and around the globe. Approximately 5000 people live in the Shire.
