The 6 Day FISH N RIDE Cape York Tour
Fishabout and Cape York motorbikes bring you the ULTIMATE fishing exploration adventure!
Combine the excitement of riding a Suzuki 450 dirt bike to Cape York, with the challenge of hooking a hungry Barramundi or the adrenalin rush that comes from reeling in a big Queenfish or Giant Trevally. Cape York Motorcycle Adventures combines the last bastions of male bonding - fishing, camping & motorcycle riding. If you love fishing and motorcycles it simply doesn't get any better than this!
All necessary modifications are made to the bikes so that they are able to cope with the rough terrain of Cape York. The tour route is matched to suit the rider's ability and provided you have a Learners Licence and some experience riding motorcycles, you will be sure to have the time of your life.
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.
Cape 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!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 6 day FISH N RIDE tour.
The trip starts from Cairns, where your support will crew pick you up and kit you out (jackets, pants, boots, helmet, gloves & goggles) for the first stage of your ride to Cooktown via the scenic the Daintree National Park.
From Cooktown you head to Cape Flannery, riding along remote beaches and outback trails.
Along the way you will fish for Barra, Jacks and Queenies using 3-‐piece telescopic rods in the isolated waterholes, creeks and rivers of Cape York.
The camp is set up for a 2 night stay at Conny's Beach here you use the reef boat to hunt for pelagic fish such as Giant Trevally and Long-Tailed Tuna. You will also target reef fish such as Coral Trout and Red Emperors. The
camp is a fisherman's heaven. Tempt a hungry Barra to attack your lure or drop a hand line down for a Coral Trout.
After Leaving Conny's you will trek through the Bloomfield region to Cape Tribulation where the world's oldest Rainforest meets the Great Barrier Reef. Tonight you will tell tall stories and celebrate over dinner and drinks before travelling back to Cairns in the morning.
Here is a quick report of the last Fishabout FISH N RIDE trip with Cape York Motorbikes:
"Roy just got back from the Fishabout tour group. He all told us that they all had an awesome time and are contemplating another ride. They were pleasantly exhausted when I saw them on Saturday. Those who wanted to catch Barramundi did, and those who sought other species caught them as well. It was a very productive trip! Roy bought back a mud crab for Mother's Day that he had picked up off the beach. I was told about the 10 kilo's of prawns being thrown straight into the esky with the beer and a happy ring of campers slowly consuming them while staring at the ocean. OMG, these boys have such a difficult job! The tracks proved to be an unforgettable challenge for the learners but they reported that the crew were amazing at getting everyone through safely."
