Heritage Tours the ultimate way to experience the real Australia, the lifestyles, landscapes, flora and fauna of the beautiful Outback.
Cape York Peninsula is one of the last unspoilt frontiers in Australia. Until 100 years ago only indigenous Australians enjoyed this unique paradise. Even now, it still remains a wild sparsely populated wilderness that is accessible only in the dry season with 4WD vehicles. Travelling to the Cape is a unique adventure with opportunities to see unspoilt and diverse landscapes, wildlife and birdlife. At the tip of Cape York waters between Australia and Papua New Guinea are beautiful and azure, with exotic Islands reefs.
