Coen

There's plenty of life in the old mining community of Coen. Originally the town was created around a repeater station in the Overland Telegraph Line to the Tip of Cape York Peninsula. Camp on the town's outskirts in a bush camping ground at The Bend on Coen river - you will appreciate the beauty of access to a toilet facility if you have been going rough. Coen lies in the centre of the Cape York Peninsula, part of the large Cook Shire Council. It is a hub of government services with facilities including two shops with fuel outlets, a cafe and takeaway, medical centre, hotel, camping and guesthouse. Cape York House sits solidly in the main street, a community project where the town's history is presented within a building made from recycled materials from the now-demolished Mein telegraph repeater station. This original Mein station was situated north of the current Archer River Roadhouse. You will find the historic house easily accessible - just grab the key to the building (and toilet facility) from Clark's Cash Store next to the hotel. It's an honour basis a pleasant atmosphere of trust in these globally troubled times. There are no alcohol consumption restrictions in the community. You will find police and a post office based within Coen. There is also a very active Aboriginal corporation which co-ordinates services for local indigenous people.
