The Carpentier River, on the Cape York Peninsula in Queensland, Australia was named in honour of Pieter de Carpentier, Governor-General of the Dutch East Indies. The name was conferred by Jan Carstenszoon in 1623.[1] There is now no river in Northern Queensland with that name. See the entry for Pennefather River for details.
