ABOUT THIS TOUR
Cape York is truly one of Australia’s last frontiers and we’re extremely fortunate so much of it is accessible by four wheel drive. Our exclusive private property access lets you drive the tracks that the others won’t take you to.
This Cape York ‘Bucket List’ trip kicks off in Cairns, then we wind our way up the Kuranda Range and head west into the goldfields before turning north towards the Tip of Australia. We camp on some cattle stations and most nights have a beer around the campfire. Your 10 day trip is full-on, from Day 1 all the way to our last night at the Tip of Australia. You’ll have the camera out all the way. There’s a shower or swim and a campfire at every night's stop. This is an action packed safari with something new around every corner. An absolutely unforgettable 'Top Trip'.
