To stand at the most northerly point of Australia is a dream of many who enjoy travelling to remote areas. Cape York is an area of Australia untamed and with a colourful history of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander occupation, exploration and mining. The area has a diverse range of scenery, flora and fauna making this Cape York Tours Safari a birdwatchers paradise as well as a region of secluded beaches and rugged remote beauty. There are the mighty river systems and their tributaries, making four-wheel driving a necessity for crossing creeks and rivers. There are crystal clear pools and cascading waterfalls, small towns with war relics, Aboriginal history and ancient rock art. Cape York will inspire all who wish to visit and explore, from the dusty tracks that contrast dramatically with abundant river systems, the vast areas of unexplored wilderness, diverse National Parks, sacred Aboriginal sites, rainforests, steep mountains, rugged coastlines, secluded beaches and beautiful sunsets.
The dry season is from May to October but tours go from about June to September, to reduce the risk of unseasonally early or late wet weather.
From May to July, maximum temperatures are about 30 degrees when it is also driest. Temperatures climb steadily later in the season. Cape York is largely impassible during the hot season when the heaviest rainfalls occur and the rivers swell.
