Drive To The “Top” of Australia

Truly the last frontier in Australia, a trek to the northernmost tip of Australia is the ultimate destination for 4-wheel drive enthusiasts. Cape York Peninsula is a wild and sparsely populated wilderness area that is only accessible during the dry months from April to December. The dusty tracks contrast dramatically with the abundant rivers, crystal clear creeks and spectacular waterfalls in this vast area of unexplored rainforests, magnificent national parks, sacred Aboriginal sites, rugged mountains and swampy marshlands. This is a land of climatic extremes where the creeks are either dry or running three metres high.

                      Established during the 1880s, the Birdsville Track was the main stock route between Marree in South Australia and Birdsville in Queensland.

Its coastline is nothing short of stunning and according to all who have seen it, there is no other stretch of coastline in Australia that comes near in terms of its ability to inspire awe and wonder.
