Cape York is at the tip of the Cape York Peninsula in northern Queensland, and is at the very northernmost part of the Australian mainland, with New Guinea just north of the island-studded Torres Strait. It was named by James Cook in 1770 after His Royal Highness the Duke of York. Tourists now visit throughout the year, as facilities are surprisingly modern for such an isolated spot, and tours are always available. At all times be aware of the region's requirements for swimming in the tropical waters. The small towns of Seisia, home to about 100 people, and Bamaga with a thriving Islander population, are situated right at the tip of Cape York.

Fishing tours and visits to the Torres Strait Islands are popular. A variety of other activities are offered, including crocodile spotting tours, horse trail riding, and excellent fishing from the local wharf. Scenic helicopter and rental flights are also available. The Bamaga shopping centre consists of a range of specialist shops that offer a wide range of goods and it is well worth going there for an intriguing browse. Visitors are amazed by what is available. This is truly Queensland's wilderness frontier, and is a magical and unforgettable experience.

There are 5 communities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in the True Cape York (i.e., north of Jardine River). Papua New Guinea lies 150 km to the north across Torres Strait, with shallow, fast-moving waters and a maze of reefs and islands. There are at least 274 islands in the strait, all Australian territory, and administered from Thursday (Waiben) Island, 36 km WNW from the Cape. Torres Strait is mentioned in Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea as a dangerous strait where the submarine, the Nautilus, is briefly stranded.
