Cape York

Rich with Aboriginal culture and Australian pioneering history, Cape York is an untamed wilderness area waiting to be explored. The journey through Cape York Peninsula to the top of Australia is an epic adventure taking in memorable pubs, ancient rock art and spectacular natural scenery.

Drive along red outback roads, explore wetlands brimming with birds and fish, discover gold town ruins, try your luck at isolated fishing spots and cool off in a pristine waterfall. Watch for a flash of red as a palm cockatoo takes flight, admire Aboriginal artists at work or join a helicopter muster. Magnificent national parks, Aboriginal and Islander communities, cattle stations and tiny towns can be visited, each with its own story of adventure to tell.

This region is renowned as the site of the world's largest body of prehistoric rock art and is rated by UNESCO in the top 10 rare rock art sites in the world. Take a self-guided tour or join an Indigenous guide for a unique cultural insight.

Bushwalking, four-wheel driving, wildlife watching, fishing, bird watching and camping are the things to do in Cape York, a unique wilderness area that remains relatively untouched, maintaining its original beauty and diversity.
