Pipon Island contains a cruise ship anchorage.
This island is the locus of the major carpet snake myth of the area. There is a painting of the snake in Cape Melville and a major traditional residential site. The Cape was also the scene of several wrecks and mass drownings of lugger crews in the 1890s and there is a monument on the 300 m high mountain on the cape. It is around 67 hectares or 0.67 square km in size.
