One of the most famous four wheel drive tracks is from Cairns to Cape York, covering more than 3000 kilometers. Getting there and back in a private 4WD takes at least 4 days, but you'll experience rugged 4WDing, secluded camping, remote beaches and fantastic fishing. Along the way, travelers pass through small towns such as Cooktown, Coen and Weipa where supplies can be topped up.
When traveling on a 4WD adventure, please leave as little impact on the environment as possible. Drive only on marked tracks, watch out for wildlife, and take all your rubbish back home with you. Cairns and Tropical North Queensland is a fragile ecosystem, so thrashing it to bits with your tough 4 wheel drive isn't in anyone's interest.
Organised four wheel drive rainforest and outback tours are also available from Cairns where trained drivers take you on an overland rainforest or outback cave tour for one day, or weeklong trips. The drivers, whom have extensive knowledge of the region, can find all the hidden and most scenic four wheel driving spots in the surrounding Cairns region.
