Seisia community is situated on the coast of the Northern Peninsula Area. Its population is largely made up of Saibai Islander descendents, who moved to the mainland following flooding in the 1950’s. It has a significant passing trade from tourists travelling to the tip of Cape York, offering a large camping ground and holiday park for travellers.

The Northern Peninsula Area Regional Plan Community Booklet 2012 lists the following for all five NPA communities:

  • the needs the community expressed in 2008 during consultations for the development of the Torres Strait and Northern Peninsula Regional Plan 2009-2029, and their status in 2012 (colour coded red,orange or green), thus showing progress in filling gaps in service delivery
  • the services delivered or available and accessible to the community and individuals across the Region
  • contact details for government departments, agencies and programs.
