Cape York Complete

Map Image

Follow in the footsteps of dashing explorers and hardy gold prospectors through a lush and largely untouched wilderness that may still be inhabited by mischievous spirits from the Dreamtime. See where the mythic 'Quinkans' are painted on ancient sandstone rocks, stroll on tropical beaches in the Torres Strait, and be dwarfed by black granite mountains, giant termite mounds, pristine rivers and the famous Daintree rainforest. It's a top adventure at the very top of Australia!
