Welcome to Cape York Peninsula, Far North Queensland, Australia
VisitCapeYork.com is your official guide to the vast, rugged, and awesome wilderness of the Cape York Peninsula in Far North Queensland which has unique opportunities to experience one of the last untamed frontiers in Australia. The Cape’s challenging landscape features raging rivers, expansive land and sea horizons, rugged outback experiences and awesome scenery. The wildlife thrives and is at home in the Aussie bush enclaves, parched landscapes, and many amazing waterways.
A visit to the region along its variously passable roads and tracks puts you back in the heart of an ancient land where you will be inspired to co-exist with all of raw nature’s challenges and to appreciate its timeless unbroken and thriving qualities. With its rugged, natural beauty steeped in Aboriginal traditions and rich early settlement history, it is an adventure safari for intrepid roadies.
Starting from various southern points (Cairns, Daintree or Cooktown), the ultimate goal of dedicated travellers is to stand at the northernmost tip of Australia, a fitting culmination for such an epic tour. The only way to get there is in a self-drive vehicle or on a guided bus tour.
A visit to the Cape York Peninsula is best started in the city of Cairns, the gateway to this tropical region whose other gems are the magnificent Great Barrier Reef and AthertonTablelands. Driving north from Cairns, visitors journey through the stunning natural beauty of one of the oldest rainforests in the world and the tropical fruit gardens of the hinterland.
