Cape York possibility?
 

Cape York possibility?

by Carol Ryan
(Melbourne)

Hello, it was always my husband's and my wish to do a four wheel drive up to Cape York, however, my husband is now unwell and there is no way he could be bumped around in such a way.

We really want to travel to Cape York and perhaps Thursday Island.

We could fly there but what is available to us to then explore.

Are there day trips or flights that would be worthwhile?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Hi Carol,

Hi Carol,

Firstly sorry for my late reply - i am on the tracks and out of the office a lot more than during the wet season.

It sounds to me from your question that you would like to fly to the tip of Cape York if you also would like to do TI (meaning you can also fly to other places).

Yes, there are flights to the Tip, and also local operators to do various day trips and longer trips on both land and water and it might even be cheaper than do the whole trip yourself.

The whole list of the flights, tour operators and what there is to explore is in the Destination Guide (sorry there is way too much for me to be able to write it all in here :-)

And all the same info is also there about all the rest of the places on the Cape York peninsula, in case you would choose to fly somewhere else and do the same with tour operators.

Way too many options that i could even give you a small picture here that would be any good.

All is in the Destination Cape York - hope you can make it and enjoy your trip :-)
