Cape York

Information

What’s it like travelling to the tip of Cape York?
Far North Queensland is one of the last remote wilderness destinations in Australia, which means that you will need to be of good health and good humour. There is limited mobile reception, and supplies at the some of the properties that we visit are limited, as are special dietary needs. Most lunches are home styled salads and cold meat. Although our 4WD vehicle is modern and comfortable, it can still be quite rough for long stretches where the roads have become rutted. Comfortable clothing and sturdy covered footwear is recommended at all times.

Day 1 D

Home - Cairns
After your flight into Cairns, our staff will arrange your transfers to our accommodation. Enjoy a free afternoon exploring the city and esplanade, finishingthe day dining with your fellow passengers.

Day 2 B, D

Cairns - Thursday Island - Cape York
Take the short flight to Horn Island from Cairns with spectacular views of the Coral Sea, The Great Barrier Reef and the uninhabited East Coast wilderness of Cape York Peninsula. On arrival you will be taken by boat to Thursday Island. Enjoy an informative guided bus tour of the island and its picturesque harbour, once home to the romantic pearl lugger fleet. Later this afternoon take a ferry to the mainland, where your guide will take you to Seisia, our base for the next two nights.

Day 3 B, L, D

Cape York
An unforgettable day! Stand at the very top of mainland Australia. We then visit Somerset (road conditions permitting), once the home of the legendary Jardine family and government outpost established in 1864. Enjoy lunch on the palm fringed Anchorage Beach, which overlooks the Albany Passage. A walk on the beach will complete your day before returning to Seisia.

Day 4 B, L, D

Cape York - Fruit Bat Falls - Bramwell Station
Southward bound, we cross the mighty Jardine River, stopping at Fruit Bat Falls for lunch. Relax, swim and enjoy this unique area with its enchanting waterfall. This afternoon, travel along part of the Old Telegraph Track, before we make our way to a true blue Aussie cattle station.

Day 5 B, D

Bramwell Station - Weipa
Today we journey south through the wilderness with all its varied landscapes to cross the Wenlock River. We head for the shores of the Gulf of Carpentaria, boarding a boat for our afternoon Weipa Eco Cruise. Explore the Embley River, discovering the wildlife on the mudflats and in the mangroves. Learn about crocodiles, fish and birdlife.

After an early start, head east towards Princess Charlotte Bay where we traverse the entire length of Lakefield National Park (road conditions permitting). The park amalgamated three huge cattle stations and is now a haven for the many birds and animals native to this area. See the lagoons, billabongs and wide river lakes that are home to both fresh and saltwater crocodiles before travelling on to visit Split Rock, Aboriginal Rock Art. We then explore the old gold port of Cooktown, including a visit to Captain Cook’s Landing before settling in to our accommodation in Cooktown.
