Cape York is still the first adventure on the 4-wheel driver’s bucket list
Cape York highlights include pristine beaches, fishing, challenging creek crossings on the Old Telegraph Track, waterfalls and you can see them all in this DVD with a trip to the Tip to complete the adventure.
A group of adventurous holidaymakers, under the leadership of experienced tour guide, Peter Ikin, set off from Port Douglas to enjoy the fishing, challenge and scenic beauty of tropical rainforest and beautiful beaches.
This video follows the group through their Cape York adventures. In the first part of the journey the trip takes in Lakeland Downs, Laura and Coen, the famous Archer River Roadhouse and the bustling mining township of Weipa.
The adventure continues after Bramwell Station where the real fun of the Old Telegraph Track begins. From the first creek, Palm Creek, there is another challenge at each creek from the breath-taking Gunshot Creek, rocky Berties Creek and Cockatoo Creek, the picturesque Cannibal Creek, log bridge of Cyprus Creek to the treacherous Nolans Brooks. Under the guidance of Peter Ikin, each member safely reached the mighty Jardine River and took the ferry to the other side.
From Loyalty Beach the group headed for the iconic Tip of Cape York Peninsula, and visited Thursday and Horn Islands. Then it was time to head back, but first a side trip to enjoy Vrilya Point and some more fishing. The group also enjoyed both of the pretty Fruit Bat and Twin Falls.
The trip finished at Cooktown, where history, river and seaside scenery provide a fitting end to the Cape York adventure.
