Australia - Off Road Motorcycle Tours

To say that my trip was an incredible experience is a gross understatement. The folks at CYMCA did all they could to make the trip very enjoyable for the whole group. The fresh water swimming (even with riding gear on) was wonderful. I would recommend these tours to any bike enthusiast, they will love it.

Our Australian offroad motorcycle tours are based in Queensland, and more specifically focus on Cape York. Cape York Peninsula is one of the last great wild places on earth. Covering an area nearly as big as the state of Victoria, it has characteristics and features that are of global, regional and national significance in respect of all eight natural heritage criteria, making it one of the last “untouched” tropical wildernesses in the world.

(The Wilderness Society)

AUS - OffroadCape York Peninsula is as important and rare as the Serengeti, the Congo and the Amazon. The vast natural woodlands, tropical rainforests, pristine rivers, uninhabited beaches, and coral reefs and cays are of global and national significance.

For the motorcyclist, Cape York offers every type of terrain you could find in Australia (with the exception of snow and ice!), and presents the rider with an unforgettable Australian remote wilderness adventure. Crocodiles, kangaroos, wild bush pigs, dingoes and native birdlife are all part of the Cape York experience; it really is “Australia in 8 days”!

And we are committed to maintaining ecologically sustainable tourism; the primary focus of our tours is on experiencing the wilderness areas of Cape York Peninsula and fostering environmental and cultural understanding, appreciation and conservation.AUS - Cape York tour map

A World Heritage Tropical Wilderness

With an area of around 13.5 million ha, the Cape York Peninsula has, in effect, a continuous cover of tropical, native vegetation ecosystems. This is important for biodiversity conservation.

The Cape York Peninsula contains three globally significant bioclimatic domains, and a wide range of ecosystems that are well represented and relatively undisturbed by modern technology.

The area also contains many outstanding examples of bio-evolution, the record of life. Fossil locations documented throughout the Peninsula hold important evidence of Australia’s Gondwanic heritage.

The pristine streams and rivers of Cape York have been minimally disturbed by the works of human activity and contain a diversity of freshwater fish species which compares internationally with tropical catchments of similar size. The northern rivers have excellent barramundi, providing both the experience and novice angler with a unique fishing experience.

The Traditional Owners of Cape York hold unique connections to Country and have a depth of ecological knowledge and management expertise vital to its protection. The region exhibits a long and intimate relationship between the Indigenous people and their environment.

The Cape York Peninsula is now a recognized landscape entity of global significance that provides a well defined and valued visitor experience revolving around the ‘wild’ natural landscape.

Our offroad tours in northern Queensland are unique adventure safaris where you are in control, travelling to remote areas which will surprise and delight novice and expert rider alike. Long dusty trails,, tight and twisting rainforest tracks, creeks and wetlands. Along the way you will see amazing wildlife - crocodiles, kangaroos, native birds, wild bush pigs and dingoes. For the keen fisherman, the northern rivers have excellent Barramundi, and we can supply the fishing tackle.
