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. On the way home we get into some serious off road driving as we tackle the number 1 ticket item for most, on the Old Telegraph Track. It starts at the Jardine River as we tackle creek and river crossings, (avoiding crocs). Some of the tight, twisty sandy sections are exciting and will test your new found skills. After numerous crossings we get to our Overnight camp at Elliot/Twin Falls. It’s time for a swim at one of Cape York’s most scenic waterfalls. Then we do it all over again the next day, with even better creek crossings and more challenging sections of track to our overnight stop at Bramwell Station. We continue south towards Lakefield National Park and after an overnight stop at Kalpowar Crossing, we hit the rarely used and nearly forgotten Starke Track. This is one of Cape York’s more overgrown trails and is one of the highlights of the Cape. We drive it all the way to the end. We camp on some cattle stations and most nights have a beer around the campfire. Your 21 day safari is full-on, from Day 1 all the way to our last night in Cairns. 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'.
