Cape York Peninsula

The trek to the tip of Cape York is undoubtedly every Australian four-wheel-driver's ultimate road trip. The journey, with its unexpected pleasures, friends and difficulties, lures trekkers back time and time again, so much so that for many it has become an annual ritual. There's always bulldust, corrugations, deep river crossings and saltwater crocodiles in among the pristine tropical rainforests, savannahs, shrublands, tropical and subtropical grasslands, wetlands, wild rivers, tropical savannahs, heath lands and dense mangrove swamps. The road conditions are always unpredictable, even though travel is restricted to the dry season, because of the cape's extreme conditions.
