Cape York Frontier

7 Day Guided Vacation | Cairns Return

Australia is blessed with unpeopled wilderness areas and quirky towns. You’ll find both in spades on the Cape York Peninsula. Arriving at the tip of country on this Far North Queensland tour, you’ll feel like you’re on top of the world, far away from the rigmarole of daily life. And this is just the start of your Queensland short break adventure; expect waterfalls, rainforest, wetlands and outback cattle stations.

Moments after departing Cairns you're amid the World Heritage listed Wet Tropics of Queensland. Cross the Daintree River and you’re on your way to Cape Tribulation, where the rainforest meets the Great Barrier Reef. You’re not here to dive in – your journey takes you off-road along the 4WD Bloomfield Track. Legends (and myths) await at Black Mountain, sometimes dubbed the Bermuda Triangle of Australia.

  Hotel: Sovereign Resort Hotel

  Included Meals: Dinner, Lunch

Today you're in Quinkan Country, home to one of Australia best-preserved rock-art sites. Nearby, Rinyirru (Lakefield) National Park is big in more ways than one, from its enormous waterlily-covered billabongs to its unfathomable number of birds.

  Hotel: Musgrave Roadhouse

  Included Meals: Lunch, Breakfast, Dinner

The historic gold town of Coen may be small in size, but it’s got plenty of country swagger. Bauxite mining was the reason the tiny town of Weipa was formed. Today, visitors arrive for blazing sunsets over the Gulf of Carpentaria.

  Hotel: Albatross Bay Resort

  Included Meals: Lunch, Breakfast, Dinner

How do you want to spend your pre-lunch hours? Perhaps on an optional Weipa Wildlife & Eco Cruise, revealing First Nations culture and wildlife. Or dig deep on a bauxite mine tour. How these rocks are pulled from the ground is head-scratching. As is the size of Bramwell Station, Australia’s northernmost cattle station and your base for the night.

  Hotel: Bramwell Cattle Station

  Included Meals: Dinner, Breakfast

Your early start today is worth it when you arrive at Fruit Bat Falls for lunch. Dive in, splash about, cool off, unwind. There’s not much between you and Cape York; cross the Jardine River and you’re there. Seisia is the departure point for ferries to Thursday Island and fishing charters. It’s also the gateway to tomorrow’s adventures.

  Hotel: Seisia Holiday Village

  Included Meals: Lunch, Breakfast, Dinner

Not many people can say they’ve stood at the very top of mainland Australia at Somerset, the first European settlement on the Cape York Peninsula. Lunch is served on palm fringed Anchorage Beach overlooking the Albany Passage.

  Hotel: Seisia Holiday Village

  Included Meals: Lunch, Breakfast, Dinner

Rich in Aboriginal culture, history and natural beauty, Thursday Island is the capital of the Torres Strait Islands. Time might stand still here, but you won’t – you’re on a guided tour before heading to Horn Island to board your aircraft, flying over the Great Barrier Reef back to Cairns. Wait, how did this week pass so quickly?

  Included Meals: Breakfast
