CAPE YORK – Our favourite part of the whole trip

Cape York is a sparsely populated, isolated region in the far north of Queensland, home to the most Northern part of the Australian continent and the famous 4x4 track – The Old Telegraph Track (or OTL for Old Telegraph Line) it has 14 river crossings all of varying difficulty – none include crocs!.
There are 2 seasons up here, wet (Oct – Mar) and dry (Apr – Sept), in the wet you’d need a boat or plane to get up here, in the dry the roads are repaired and opened and the tourists and 4 wheel drivers come up in there droves. The southern most town in the Cape and the largest is Cooktown - this was our first stop.
