I recently completed a Tagalong Tour of Cape York Peninsula with Tagalong Tours of Australia, operated and organised by Paul Stafford from Cairns, Qld. I joined a 20 day tour (11th August to 30th August '14 Cairns to Cape York return) which I thought beneficial due to the vast distances we covered, variety of terrain, flora, fauna, historical places, interesting...

Go a few km down the road to Moreton Station. We stayed here in one of the budget rooms, I am not sure when the linen was last changed, the whole place including the amenity block were dirty. While they have a good meal and entertainment at night, I would prefer you save the money on entertainers we don't want... More

What a trip!!!! ( 10th July to 5th August 2014) Up to the tip (Cape YOrk) via the Old Telegraph road and back down by the conventional dirt road highways.

Absolutely Fantastic. From the first point of contact Paul was informative & very helpful, his pre -trip information booklet is very handy in helping you prepare your vehicle & giving you details of the supplies you will require. Our trip to the Cape in May-June 2014 was very much out of the ordinary. IT Rained!!!!!!!. Don't let Paul tell you... More

My wife and I traveled with Paul Stafford to Cape York with eight other vehicles. It was a wonderful way to see the area with new friends and a very competent guide. The camp sites were the best in the area and ranged from bush camping at Vrilya Point to camping luxury at Cooktown. After a full day of driving... More
