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

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, finishing the day with dinner together with your fellow passengers.


Day 2

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 ferry to Thursday Island. Enjoy an informative guided bus tour of the island and its picturesque harbour, once home to the 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.
