Cape York in June - with 4x4 and motorbike

Cape York in June - with 4x4 and motorbike

by Barbara

Hey we plan to do the Cape York next June with a 4x4 and our friends with their motorbikes.

Do you thinks this is too early as the last two wet seasons were quite long and heavy.

Your feedback is much appreciated.

Thanks and kind regards Barbara

Hi Barbara,
by: Katrin

This wet season was heavier in the northern Cape York and the last one was heavier in the southern parts, particularly Lakefield National Park.

It is impossible to predict what the next one will be, and the last two were not really heavy but were heavier compared to the ones before.

On most years all of June is fine but if you are coming from overseas and have limited time or fixed flight tickets then late June might feel safer.

Each month is discussed in the Free Pocket Guide, in the 'When to Go' chapter.
