Walk to The Tip of Australia

Blog posted by: Admin on 01 Aug 2016

After all the effort of getting to Cape York from Cairns on a 4WD tour you arrive in the car park just a short stroll from the very "Tip Of Australia" - then whats next?
If the timing is right then you can take a leisurely walk along the beach from the car park which will take around 15 minutes, climb over rocks for 30 seconds and your then standing at the very tip of Australia! Option B, if the tide is out then its a 15 minute walk over some rocky ground which you will need good shoes for and a drink bottle as its not flat but the track is well marked. You will have some amazing elevated views over Cape York and your tour guide will be pointing out the different islands nearby. The walk to Cape York is definitely worth it and its not a race so your tour group will have plenty of time to take in the atmosphere. Of course, the Grand Finale is a photograph that not many people have of themselves at the very tip of Australia!
