It was very special to cruise around Cape York, and whilst we did not go on land, it was a feeling of achieving going around the Cape. Sailed close enough to see the land at a distance......our experience was the feeling. Recommend to all.

We were in cape York to catch a Barramundi. The weather was doubtful and we had arranged to go out Jay Arnold from Cape York Peninsula Fishing. he said he would meet us in the morning of our booked charter to discuss if it was worth going. He said if it was no good we would not go and in... More

Unlike many unique geographical locations around the world Cape York is refreshingly free of fast food outlets, photo booth vendors, souvenir sellers etc. (or any other amenity). The only blot being the presence of cane toads that have made it right to the tip. The location is stunningly beautiful especially the adjacent white sand beach lined by palms & a... More

If you are thinking of going with this mob, think again. Terrible food and service. Hygiene and washing up was unacceptable. Very disorganised, our pick up in Cairns did not arrive and that was just the start of a very low rate holiday to an amazing place. We paid full fare the only ones on the trip as all others... More

Geographic extremities is also joyful for me. Australia is large so the easiest one is the easterly at Cape Byron. For unknown reasons people spend heaps visiting the northern mainland point. Cheapest way to get there all year round is to fly to Bamaga and take a taxi. No real public transport. Taking an organised tour will cost you $200... More

Travelling to Cape York via 4WD, is an amazing experience. Seeing the real outback of Australia, including corrugations on the road, that shake your body until you feel like your going to fall apart. That is the worst part of the trip. We had a group of 9, all very experienced 4WD drivers. We took the Old telegraph track and... More

We had a great trip up the old telegraph track, until we crossed the Jardine river and were stopped by the Police. Apparently we had over the legal limit of grog. We understood that if you were passing through certain communites and were a bonifide traveller ( we had booked at Punsand Bay Caravan Park for three nights and going... More

We had a wonderful time exploring Cape York from the comfort of our own car. We have 3 young children, and (as long as your kids love the great outdoors) we would thoroughly recommend Tagalong Tours as the best way to get to The Tip!! With a great mix of campsites, from roadhouse camping grounds, to beach front camp sites,... More
