Cape York tours, a bucket list tour to the top of Australia for a 3 day scenic air tour to see Cape York and visit the top end for that famous photo overlooking the Torres Strait and her Islands. We have been flying to Cape York for over 25 years and know this part of Australia intimately.
Departing from Cairns we take to the air in our fixed wing aircraft on our way northwards to the tip of Cape York in Australia for our 3 day explore North Queensland air tour.
We fly at a low level enabling a better view of the coastline of eastern Australia, the Great Barrier Reef and her World Heritage listed rainforests as we make our way to our first destination Cooktown.
We enjoy all the historical and interesting sites and learn all about the pioneering days and see the places that Captain Cook came ashore and spent some time whilst repairing his ship.
Our next stop and overnight destination is Horn Island where we visit the Heritage Museum and art gallery and enjoy some free time to explore this northern Australian outpost.
We are then off on a ferry cruise to Thursday Island, a place that is home to a valuable pearling industry, and which was once a British Empire outpost.
Our next flight will take us from Horn Island to fly south over the Torres Straits and down the west coast of the Cape to Weipa.
This remote and little known region is a haven for barramundi, prawn (shrimp) spawning the crocodiles habitat with its continuous beaches and numerous river deltas, arriving at Weipa set on magnificent Albatross Bay.
After enjoying the sights and sounds of Weipa our next destination is Coen and landing at Musgrave Station for a nice lunch and a chat with the locals.
Then we make our way back to Cairns along the Great Barrier Reef and her fringing rainforests where we all depart and bid our farewells.
