Out of Stock. New 13th Edition is due in March 2014.
Ron and Viv Moon’s definitive guide to Cape York, is now released in its 12th edition. Cape
York – an Adventurer’s Guide, is 224 pages of vital information, which has been gleaned from over 32 trips to the Cape. This guidebook is considered to be the ‘bible’ for those travelling the Cape and continues to be written with the aim of helping other travellers get the most out of what the Cape has to offer.
This all-new book is in full colour and is spiral bound for ease of use by travellers and adventurers. All of the information has been updated, extensively revised and distilled into a no-nonsense guide to the very best of Cape York.
The guide includes the latest track information for remote travel throughout the region, whether you wish to experience the delights of the historic and picturesque Overland Telegraph Line, or something even more remote whether on the east or west coasts of the Cape. Likewise there’s a host of detail on remote camping areas, fishing spots and boat launching places – many of these with GPS points and in-depth access particulars. No other guide gives you such incredible detail so you can get away from it all and experience the very best of this wild and beautiful area.
With 35 maps and hundreds of GPS points to out-of-the-way places you’ll be able to experience your very own unique adventure on Cape York. These areas include Bathurst Bay, Bathurst Head, Jacks Lake, Cape Flattery, the remote Skardon River mouth and beach, the Pennefather River mouth, Duyfken Point, False Pera Heads and the Olive River goldfields, to name just a few.
Detailed chapters on Normanton and Karumba, Chillagoe, the Palmer River goldfields, Iron Range and Portland Roads, Cooktown, Weipa, Thursday Island and Torres Strait, as well as the very top of Cape York around Bamaga and Seisia, are packed full of all the information that a traveller requires.
Chapters on history, the natural world, planning your trip (including alcohol restrictions, supply points & fuel availability) along with things to do (that includes fishing, boating, gold and gem fossicking and wildlife watching, amongst others) give you all the vital information you need for a safe and enjoyable trip.
Whether you’re into camping on a remote beach, challenging yourself with a bit of tough four wheel driving, or just wanting to get away from it all to soak up wild and pristine nature at its best, then this is the guidebook for your next trip to Cape York.
