Cape York – A Spiritual and Cultural Experience

Cape York, located at the top of the Australian continent, in the state of Queensland, is akin to moving back in time.

At the southern end of Cape York there is a city of Cook where you can experience a total indigenous cultural experience. The indigenous people run and lead the tours where indigenous elders take you on a week long tour exploring the isolated beaches, coral reefs, and the surrounding rain forests where you may be lucky enough to see one of Australia's rare and unique flightless bird the Cassowary.
