CAPE YORK

Australia’s last wild frontier

Australia’s last wild frontier is Cape York Peninsula where adventure abounds with unique Indigenous experiences, exciting fishing, challenging four-wheel-drive tracks and the amazing history of Cooktown among the highlights.

From red Outback roads to wetlands brimming with birds and fish or from gold town ruins to camping spots beside pristine waterfalls, Cape York Peninsula promises a mighty slice of Australian history and an insight into modern life in remote areas.

At the very tip of Cape York where the South Pacific Ocean and the Arafura Sea mix their currents are the 274 islands of the Torres Strait, including Thursday and Horn Islands. This unique tropical region is home to the indigenous Torres Strait Islanders whose culture is rich in the arts and whose lifestyle has evolved from the sea and its abundance of wildlife.
