The Bloomfield River is a river situated in Queensland, north of Daintree. The river enters the sea north of Cape Tribulation and is noted for its Bloomfield River cod fish species, found only in the river. The river estuary is in near pristine conditions.
It was originally named "Blomfield's Rivulet" on 26 June 1818 by Phillip Parker King It is prohibited to catch the Bloomfield river cod in Queensland.
The controversial Bloomfield Track which connects Cape Tribulation with Cooktown, crosses the Bloomfield River. This crossing was closed in 2011 by the Cairns Regional Council after Cyclone Yasi destroyed the existing causeway. A passenger-only ferry service has been in use until a four-wheel only temporary crossing is built.
By some accounts the Cape York Peninsula begins north of the Bloomfield River.
