Cape York Tours 2021: Limited Cape tours this season

This year we will be running 2 new Gulf Savannah tours, from Cairns to Darwin & back. This will shorten our Cape York season. (4 Cape York tours + 2 Gulf Savannah Tours)

Cape York Tours 2019 & 2020 Booked Out!

Cape York tours are the pinnacle of Australian outback adventures!  With an ecologist & Cape York local as your guide, enjoy two weeks of camping, relaxing, exploring the outback and observing wildlife.  Swim in pristine water, bird watch, fish and stare blankly into a campfire!   Our cultural, historical and ecological knowledge of Cape York is unrivalled!

This year’s tours have improved tenfold from our 2019 & 2020 itineraries 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 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 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!

Our job is to ensure each Cockatourer has a true and unique Cape York outback experience so our aim is to create unique and exclusive adventures that are relaxed, a little more flexible and exciting. 

Ensure to read the itinerary to see what adventure you have in store!  Remember we are limited to 15 seats per tour and WE SELL OUT every year!

2022 Bookings

Our 2021 season has finished and we are reviewing our itineraries and plans for next season!

We don’t announce dates until later this year.  This is so we can improve our itinerary and wait for other Cape York events to release their dates.  Until then we have a waiting list which you can put your name down on.  When tour dates for the next season are finalised, we contact people on the waiting list in the order they contacted us.

We DO have some exciting improvements and tours for 2022!  There will be fewer Cape York tours than usual however, as we will be running youth camps during school holidays, so make sure you get in ASAP 🙂

If you would like to be put on the waiting list please email us and provide:

  • Preferred tour & month of tour
  • A contact mobile phone number
  • Full names of all travellers
  • City and state of all travellers

Review of the Year, 2020

“Rossy’s knowledge covering just about everything that moves, grows, lives etc is outstanding and information is given in a very understandable manner. He is an excellent environmentalist/ecologist.

I have travelled to many countries and been on many tours but this trip is top of my list of excellence for excitement and enjoyment.

I have learnt a great deal about the environment which exists in this wonderful country, particularly Cape York. If you are thinking about visiting Cape York – dont overlook Cockatours. I guarantee you wont be disappointed.”
