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.
