Bloomfield is a small community. Bloomfield is a town in the Shire of Cook and a coastal locality which is split between the Shire of Cook and the Shire of Douglas in Queensland, Australia. The town and locality are named after the Bloomfield River There is a general Store, a library open 3 days a week, a community centre and 2 Caravan parks. There are also a few springs and waterholes crossing the road where the locals can swim without fear of meeting a crocodile. Although Bloomfield (15°56′00″S 145°20′30″E) is officially the population centre, in practice, there is little there apart from the school. Most of the development is in Ayton, on the northern bank of the Bloomfield River near its mouth
There are two boat Ramps. I was happily walking the loading area when I was told a crocodile had bitten a woman here a week ago and to be careful. I went back to the top and sat at the picnic table where a local had just caught a fish. Its a very beautiful spot to catch a fish. You can launch a boat from here or book a tour from Wujal Wujal
