The Roads that these vehicle are allowed on will lead you from Cairns to the very tip of Cape York - Australia where you can fish, catch ferries to the islands of the Torres Straits and stand at the sign saying you are at the very top of Australia. Please consult a good map provider for road names and details like the “Hema Map" company.
