The coastal road from Cairns to Cooktown is for 4WD only in some parts however the inland road to Cooktown is a normal road the entire way. There are several ways of traveling to Cape York but it is advisable not to travel between November and April, as it is the wet season. The distance from Cairns to the tip of Cape York is over 1000km. The quickest way to see Cape York would be to take a one to three day air tour.
