Looking for a destination unlike any other? Are you an adventurer at heart, but still enjoy life's little luxuries? Welcome to Cape York's Bed and Breakfast Region.Covering approximately 150,000 square kilometers and bordered on three sides by water, the Cape York Peninsula is indeed unique. To the east, lies one of the world's seven natural wonders, the Great Barrier Reef. To the west is the Gulf of Carpentaria and to the north, the Torres Strait with Australia's nearest neighbour, Papua New Guinea, only 80 miles away. The Great Dividing Range rises and begins its' long journey south here and the area is revered as one of the world's last true wilderness areas.For the thrill-seekers, there are "croc" spotting tours. For those wanting to enjoy spectacular scenery, there are helicopter tours or horse trail rides whilst for the romantics, there are peaceful sunset cruises. Take a hike through some ancient rainforests, explore the mangrove swamps and see the extensive variety of bird life that calls "The Cape" home. But for the fisherman, there is nowhere like this on earth. Whether you are happy to "drop a line" from one of the many seaside towns' wharves or jetties - or sportfishing the "catch of a lifetime", this is the holiday destination of your dreams. Barramundi, Saratoga, Trevally, Tuna, Mangrove Jack, Queenfish, Salmon, Mackerel, Queensland Groper, Coral Trout...the list just goes on.And the scenery doesn't stop there either.
