For thousands of years, Cape York has defied the onslaught of civilisation. Until a little over 100 years ago, only Indigenous Australians enjoyed this unique paradise. History records the Europeans first touched our shores here almost four centuries ago but ironically this is still Australia’s last pioneering frontier, the last of our continent to be explored, settled or developed.
The quest to conquer has always attracted man to the least accessible of the Earth’s surfaces, the highest mountain, the wildest desert, or the most remote.
In Australia, the greatest achievement is, without question, to reach the northernmost Tip, Cape York. Even now, it still remains a sparsely populated area that is accessible during the dry season months from May to December, and then only by four wheel drive vehicles for the majority of the way.
To travel to Cape York is still a unique adventure allowing you to see this great unspoilt and diverse part of Australia and its wildlife and birdlife up close. To stand at the very tip of Australia where oceans meet and overlook the sheltered and unspoilt Torres Strait Islands, is indeed a truly an awe inspiring and overwhelming experience.
