‘Queensland’s final frontier’ is not for the faint of heart. During some months, it can be brutally hot. In other months, some of the most remote roads can be flooded out. However, if you’re an ‘outdoorsy type’ seeking an epic adventure amongst rugged terrain and untamed rainforests, Cape York Peninsula will be a highly-rewarding encounter.
