Cape York Peninsula


Hailed by Lonely Planet as one of the best 4WD routes on the Australian continent, the Cape York Peninsula offers an experience beyond the beaten track.

Swap your camper van for a 4WD and get ready for an adventure in one of the world’s last accessible wilderness areas.

Here you will come face-to-face with wild crocodiles, challenging river crossings and spend your nights camping under the star-lit skies of the southern hemisphere.

It’s a region steeped in ancient Indigenous history and traditions and the home of the world’s largest body of prehistoric rock art, dating back 50,000 years.

Visit bush cattle stations, Aboriginal art sites and mingle with the locals in one of the most remote areas of the world.

At the top of the Cape York Peninsula you will find the Torres Strait, where 274 islands separate the Australian mainland from Papua New Guinea.
