COOKTOWN – REAL CAPE COUNTRY

Cooktown is a gateway, a true satellite at the edge of the beyond. In a land as variegated as Australia, where red cliffs bleed into green tropical forest, which blend, in turn, into wheat belts and cityscapes, the places that catch my eye are always worlds unto themselves.

Capricorn Coast Qld, Week long trip

RINYIRRU NP, QLD

Rinyirru National Park is a little far afield for a quick weekend jaunt out of Brisbane, perched as it is 100km or so inland of Cooktown. This is one of those places that’s worth making time for, whether you’re a far north QLD resident or plan a stopover as part of a pilgrimage to Cape York.
