Always wanted a ๐—–๐—ฎ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ ๐—ฌ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ธ ๐—”๐—ฑ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฒ but unsure about doing it by yourself? We've taken away the hassle and uncertainty of organising the trip and the risk of doing it alone.

Join us for an unforgettable adventure to the Tip of Cape York and beyond. Way more than just a camping trip to the Tip, your experienced tour arranger and guide Tony, will not only show you the best spots to visit on the Cape, but also the rare birds and animals that most people overlook.

Along the way, you'll have the opportunity to get your iconic photo at the Tip, take the included day trip to Thursday Island and 2 half day tours in Weipa, drive on the Old Tele Track, conquer challenging water crossings, swim in crystal clear streams, go fishing in remote locations, camp in wilderness settings, and encounter unique wildlife that can't be found anywhere else.

A range of excellent inclusions on this tour make it exceptional value. You can also add a fishing charter from Seisia on our free day (the boat is already booked, but numbers are limited). No off-road driving experience is necessary for this tour - just bring a sense of adventure and a well set up vehicle (or hire one - see below). Full instruction will be provided throughout the journey.

Your tour leader Tony is a full-time professional guide, certified by Savannah Guides, EcoGuides Australia and Tour Guides Australia, and he holds a Nationally Recognized Cert IV qualification in 4WD Training and Assessment. All this and he has a Degree in Tourism and a Masters Degree in Wildlife Management.

He'll show you the best experiences of the Cape at a relaxed pace and get you and your vehicle home again in one piece. Places are limited to 8 customer vehicles.
