Cape York Air Tours From Cairns

Cape York breeds tough locals and a particular type of person lives in this remote outback unspoilt type of destination for a reason.

They are warm friendly and keen for a yarn with visitors and they are tough so tough that they can withstand the dry season and the green season and it does not seem to bother them.

They are free to live the way they like without society judging them and they can go hunting and fishing for their own survival without having to worry too much about local laws as there are no major shopping centres or grocery stores to provide packaged foods daily in this part of Australia.

Everything comes into Cape York either by aircraft or by ship.

Cape York is about 208,000 square kilometres and it is one of the only real wildernesses left in the world today.

Sir David Attenborough said this area also has the cleanest body of water in the world due to the lack of agricultural farming, industrial industries and lack of land clearing and degradation.

Everything is in balance in Cape York and that goes with the population and number of people that rely on its natural resources.

Cape York consists of low lying wetlands with amazing birdlife that migrate here annually and high rainforest clad mountainous regions which are home to pre-historic and rare wildlife.

There are river which still hold gold and huge waterfalls, deserted white sandy beaches and low lying savannah country.

Flying to Cape York for a day you will see it all and more so come along and join us on the trip of a lifetime from Cairns we would just love to show you our Australia.
