A bit about Cape York
Cape York is a wondrous place of adventure for Motorcycles, 4WD vehicles and travellers in general.
It has its own unique plants and animals that exist in this region alone.
It is steeped in history with the first maritime Dutch explorers, its Aboriginal past, its white explorers (Edmund Kennedy), gold mining and the settlers that opened up this remote tip of Australia.
It is still remote in places yet touristy enough for those who are willing to navigate the many heavily corrugated dirt roads.
This region has it all – from the savannah grasslands and mountainous Great Divide to the many crystal clear streams and rivers which make for great fishing.
