Cape York is the northernmost point in Australia. This is the northern tip of Australia on the map; often, most people don’t know the name of it. They just know it as part of Australia. It can be reached by driving, or for the more adventurous and those who love to hike, there’s a ten mile hike to the top of the tip. However, the roads in Australia are mostly dirt.
This means that from around December, to about April, the roads to reach Cape York from the mainland are often inaccessible. Cruise ship access is an option year-round for those with the money to do so. Either way, it’s worth it to see the famous sign declaring that you are standing at the northernmost point of Australia.
