If you are looking for an iconic holiday to the last frontier of Australia, Cape York is the destination!
There are so many reasons to make sure it’s on your must do list for this year, and these are just the beginning…
Andrea has travelled extensively, including Borneo, South America & Nepal. She has explored Cape York on a 4WD vehicle. It was her first time experiencing 4WD drive and she loved it!
1. The wild
Explore the reef, rainforest, stunning long white sandy beaches and vast open planes with termite mounds forever. Watch the sunset over the Torres Strait Islands and snap a photo at the northern most point of Australia. The contrast and diversity has to be seen to be believed.

2. Epic Adventures
This is 4WD heaven: cross rivers and creeks, tackle the iconic ‘Old Telegraph Track’ retracing the steps of our explorers and throw a line in to sample the local cuisine.
Are you adventurous? Cape York has some of the most challenging tracks for you to tackle.
Are you new to 4WD driving? The road to Cape York is not all about ups and downs.
Want some camping? Cape York is perfect for campfire conversations under a blanket of stars.
Fishing or Bird watching? You bet!
3. The culture
Cape York is like no other, its true Aussie outback hospitality, cuisine, culture, and country. If you visit Cape York in July, don’t miss Laura Aboriginal Dance Festival. Witness the passing on of culture across the generations, along with the strength, pride and uniqueness of Aboriginal people. Following in August is the Cairns Indigenous Art fair where Indigenous arts are exhibited.
