CAPE YORK SEASONAL HIRE For insurance and season weather reasons this vehicle can only go to Cape York from 1 June until 31 October each year.

ROAD RESTRICTIONS These vehicles go from Cairns to Cape York on a regular basis and visit all the "Must See" tourist places on the way. The vehicles can be driven on recognised unsealed roads as long as the weather at the time is suitable for such a trip and this is why the vehicles can only be taken from Cairns to Cape York during the months of June to October. Some sections of roads like "The Old Telegraph Track" (different from The Telegraph Road which leads you to Cape York) are not allowed to be accessed due to the harshness of the roads but places like Fruit Bat/Elliot/Twin waterfalls, The Telegraph Road, the Peninsula Development Road and the Bamaga Road (also known in sections as the Southern and Northern Bypass road) are all well taken care of and allowable for you to travel on. 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.
