Weipa Middens[edit]

I was surprised the world famous middens are not mentioned in the article. They really have put Weipa on the map. Here is a link and a nice picture about it.


3000 is the local government area population but not all these people live in the town, which is what the article is about. One source in the reference section, that I recently added was published in 2004 and it claimed the town had a population of 2200. I'm not sure of the most correct method or usual way to indicate an Australian town's population, but I think 2200 is more accurate. - Shiftchange (talk) 11:54, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

Establishment year[edit]

The year Weipa was established needs resolving. The infobox and categories do not match. I'm not sure that because a church was built in the area that is when the town was established. - Shiftchange (talk) 01:31, 7 August 2013 (UTC)
