Cape York is truly one of Australia’s last frontiers and we’re extremely fortunate so much of it is accessible by motorcycle. Our exclusive private property access lets you ride the tracks that the others won’t take you to.
This Cape York ‘Bucket List’ ride kicks off with Black Mountain Road then the CREB track finishing off on the Bloomfield track and an ice cold beer at the Lions Den Hotel. And that’s just Day 1… The following day we hit the rarely used and nearly forgotten Starke Track. This is one of Cape York’s more overgrown trails and is one of the highlights of the Cape. We ride it all the way to the end. You’ll tackle Frenchmans Track. It means carrying our bikes across the Pascoe River. But it’s worth it to ride this unbelievable track. The number 1 ticket item for most, is the Old Telegraph Track. It starts at Bramwell Junction, we tackle a heap of creek and river crossings, (avoiding crocs). Some of the tight, twisty sandy sections are a blast. After Gunshot and Cockatoo crossings we get to our Overnight stop at Elliott Falls. it’s time for a swim at one of Cape York’s most scenic waterfalls. Then we do it all over again the next day, with even better creek crossings and gnarlier sections of trail. We camp on some cattle stations and most nights have a beer around the campfire. Your 7 day ride is full-on, from Day 1 all the way to your flight back on the last day. You’ll be carving trails all the way. There’s a shower and cold beer at every nights stop and a massive cooked breakfast every single morning. Your camp setup and meals are first class. This is an action packed trip with something new around every corner. An absolutely unforgettable “Top Ride”.
We pick you up from your hotel at 8am and after stowing all your gear in the support vehicle its time to get acquainted with your bike. After a rider and safety briefing we point our bikes north for this incredible Cape York Adventure and head out of Cairns on the Bruce Highway. Fifteen minutes later we turn left and head for Kuranda. The first half hour is spent on steep and twisty black top so you get a chance to get familiar with your bike.
From Kuranda we hit the dirt on Black Mountain Road and the fun begins. After an hour of weaving our way through tropical jungle, tight singe trail and open savannah we head back down the mountain and have lunch by the Mossman River.
After lunch it’s a quick lazy ride along the coast to Daintree where we cross the Daintree River and hit the CREB Track for an unforgettable ride to Wujal Wujal. Here we join the Bloomfield Track for the final blast to one of Cape York’s best pubs, the Lions Den Hotel, our overnight accommodation for Day 1. Ice cold beers and hot showers are very welcomed by everyone.
Day 2. Lions Den Hotel to Kalpowar Crossing – 297km
