TO PUT IT MILDLY, Cape York is remote. It is the “largest unspoilt wilderness in northern Australia and one of the last remaining wilderness areas on Earth.” src From Cairns in North Queensland, the tip of the peninsula — Australia’s northernmost point — is around 1,000km (621 miles) away. Its population is still mostly made up of indigenous peoples: Around 60% of the 18,000 inhabitants are Aboriginal Australian and Torres Strait Islanders.
A unique way to experience this part of the country is by motorcycle. It allows you to go places other vehicles can’t, like across creeks and rivers and down single-track paths. Keep scrolling and you’ll see what I mean.
