Cape York Peninsula is one of the last unspoilt frontiers in Australia. Even now, it remains a wild sparsely populated wilderness that is accessable only in the dry season from May until October and then only by 4WD vehicles for most of the way. To travel overland to the Cape is still a true adventure allowing travellers to see the unspoilt and diverse scenery, wildlife and birdlife at close range.
Reaching the tip of Cape York and overlooking the myriad of exotic and unspoilt islands, is truly an awe inspiring experience. With only these beautiful waters between Australia and Papua New Guinea, one can truly appreciate the experience of standing on the most northern point of the continent.
Our Cape York 4WD Accommodated Tours take you to and from Cairns to Cape York (or reverse itinerary), including Thursday Island in the Torres Strait.
Fully Accommodated Tours including ensuite each night or Budget Accommodated Tours including 3 nights accommodation with ensuite and 3 nights accommodation with shared bathroom facilities.

Cape York Australia is a large tract of largely unpopulated land, which covers the far northern part of Queensland. It includes ‘the tip’, an iconic landmark which is Australia’s most northern point, overlooking the nearby Torres Strait Islands.
Mostly flat, much of Cape York’s landscape has been left as it was for hundreds of thousands of years, except for several large cattle stations and some small isolated communities. It includes the historic township of Cooktown, which is a 3.5 hour drive from Cairns, and Weipa which is a bauxite mining community.
At its widest point, Cape York Peninsula is 430km across, which is from the Bloomfield River on its eastern coastline to Kowanyama on the west coast. It’s 660km ‘tall’ from the southern border of the Cook Shire to the tip. Roads of varying quality criss-cross Cape York. 4WD is the recommended mode of transport. There’s several remote air strips, the largest of which is serviced daily in Weipa and Horn Island in the Torres Strait Islands.
All our Cape York adventures have been carefully planned to deliver outstanding experiences and value for money. We visit the following places on all our Cape York Tours:
Cape Tribulation | Cooktown | Lakefield National Park |Musgrave Roadhouse / Weipa / Bramwell Station| Seisia | The Tip | Torres Strait Islands | Thursday Island / Horn Island as an optional extra
All of our Cape York accommodated tours include a professional tour guide and driver, all transportation and accommodation in twin share rooms with private facilities, or shared rooms and facilities, as well as most meals. The type of Cape York accommodation varies from location to location. From hotels and motels in the townships and communities, to the “No-Frill” former cattle station cabins along the track where no alternatives exist. Regardless of where we are on our adventure, you’ll find our Cape York accommodation is all clean and comfortable, the hospitality genuine and the cuisine generous and appetizing. These tours go from Cairns to Cape York and back again, including a trip to the nearby Torres Strait Islands.
Our Top End tour was fabulous, an experience of a lifetime, thanks to our tour guide Mark. He was incredibly capable, entertaining and professional, and Mark’s knowledge of the local history, area, flora and fauna made our adventure come to life. We were well fed, well accommodated and extremely well looked after, considering the isolated conditions. Can highly recommend.
Fantastic trip, our tour guide Mark was brilliant, he has a wealth of knowledge and experience of the area. Our trip was amazing. Great sites, stop overs, accommodation, experiences and food. A perfect way to visit the top end in a comfortable,relaxing and friendly way.
