Getting to Cape York

If you’re coming from Brisbane or Sydney, your best option is also flying into Cairns and taking a bus from there.

If you’re driving from other parts of Queensland or further afield, then it’s worth noting that the road conditions on some sections of highway can be quite rough so make sure that your car has good suspension before setting off on this journey!

What to Pack for Cape York

Here are the items that you should pack for your Cape York trip:

  • A hat, sunscreen and insect repellent to protect yourself from the sun, sandflies and mosquitoes.
  • A raincoat and umbrella in case it rains on your first day. It will be useful if you’re camping since there won’t be any place to store these items once you leave.
  • Swimwear, a towel and a change of clothes in case you want to go swimming in one of the many natural springs found around the cape region.
  • A camera for taking pictures of landscapes, wildlife or anything else that catches your fancy—just make sure it doesn’t get wet!
  • A torch so that you don’t have to walk around at night alone (or worse still – get lost). It can also serve as protection against crocodiles which may come out after dark looking for prey such as fish or small mammals like possums who live near riverside areas where people tend to camp out during their stay here in Australia’s tropical north west corner! If they find something they think is edible then they might try eating it – but don’t worry because most Australians aren’t afraid of these creatures; however please don’t feed them either since this could lead some animals becoming dependent upon humans instead of hunting food themselves which means less food available elsewhere too!
