This Cape York tour is a NEW addition for Cockatours. We are putting on a second truck so we can deliver more of our amazing, ecology-based camping & adventure tours. The itinerary is very similar to the original tour. The guide and chef will be Cape York experts or ecologists and will live up to the current high standard delivered by Cockatours.
We have increased 2021 Cape York tours to 15 days to include the spectatular Rinyirru (Lakefield) National Park (Queensland’s version of Kakadu). Starting from Cairns, we take you to the northern-most tip of Australia! Enjoy two weeks of camping, fishing, relaxing, exploring the outback, observing rare wildlife and learning the unique culture and history of Cape York.
This year’s tours have improved tenfold from our 2020 itinerary with many exciting new tours and activities, with a few special tweaks by Rossy, based on his experience as an Ecologist and local in Cape York. We head up inland and make our way back home through the coastal roads of the Daintree & Cape Tribulation.
You will visit the most iconic, well-known places of Cape York including a full-day experience of Thursday Island with Peddells (includes Ferry ride over plus Air-conditioned Bus Tour), a night in Coen to witness one of Cape York’s best Aboriginal dance teams, jump on a boat tour to spot crocs and birds with Western Cape Eco Tours in Weipa, swim in the most refreshing waters at the beautiful Fruit Bat Falls and of course, to top off your adventure, celebrate reaching the tip with our unforgettable true blue sunset sausage sizzle at the Tip of Australia!
On the way home we wind our way through the Wet Tropics of the Daintree & Cape Tribulation! Described by Sir David Attenborough as “the most extraordinary place on Earth”, the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area is the world’s oldest surviving tropical rainforest. A landscape so biodiverse, this ancient forest is a living breathing window into the past, where you’ll find flora and fauna over 100 million years in the making.

Cockatours is a family owned business who aim to create unforgettable experiences for everyone. We would love to share our experience and knowledge of the remote top end of Australia with you and show you places, experiences and wildlife you never thought existed! We run smaller tours with a maximum 15 or 19 people (depending on the truck) so it still feels private and we expect everyone to be friendly, kind and work together as a team to create a positive experience for all.
As a small business, we have the ability to be flexible and use this as an advantage for creating great experiences and adventures. Tours are subject to change due to roads, conditions and the guide’s decision to best suit the group.
