Where is it? 32km north of Bamaga at the tip of the Cape York Peninsula, Qld.

You can get to the most northern tip of mainland Australia by driving from Lockerbie or walking the 10km hiking path along Roma Flats. You’ll know when you get there because the land stops and you’ll see the Gulf of Carpentaria on one side and the Coral Sea on the other. Oh, and there’s a sign saying, “You are standing at the northernmost point of the Australian continent.” Because the roads through the Peninsula are mainly dirt tracks, the Cape is often inaccessible during the wet season (December to April) but access by sea on a cruise boat is an option year-round.
