Rent A 4x4 For Rinyirru (Lakeland)

Rinyirru is the second largest National Park in Queensland and is filled with many wonders to explore. offers additional information on the Rinyirru (Lakeland) National park “Journey through golden sandstone hills and sweeping grasslands, boat along scenic coastal estuaries and vast river systems, and delight in flower-sprinkled lagoons and shady waterholes. Relish superb fishing, secluded camping, brilliant birdwatching and stunning photography. Camping areas are scattered across the park and, with such a range of facilities and locations, it won’t be hard to find the perfect one. Many sites are separate and secluded, hugging the rivers and creeks that cut through the park. This place is a true paradise for fishers and birdwatchers. The rivers, lagoons and waterholes are alive with fish, enticing visitors to launch a boat or settle in with a rod. The idyllic ecosystems also sustain an array of birds that colour, animate and adorn the park. Remember to bring your binoculars and field guide. The vast landscape has deep cultural connections. Nine Aboriginal clan groups, made up of at least 75 key families, are linked with this country that is steeped with occupation, ceremonial and story places. Step back in time to the days of early European exploration, ‘gold fever’ and the booming cattle industry. Walk among relics that spotlight the park's important heritage and connections to explorers, geologists and surveyors.” This information was retrieved from

The journey north from Cairns is spectacular.  It starts with a trip along Queensland’s very own great ocean road, between Cairns and Port Douglas, before you continue north into the world’s oldest continually surviving tropical rainforests, in the Daintree National Park.  Further north, you enter the Cape York Peninsula, an area covering 150,000km2 (the combined area of England, Scotland and Wales) and home to rainforest, dry savannah, indigenous culture, including Aboriginal rock art and galleries, and Australia’s most northern point.

Excellent service. Thank you!

4WD Car Hire To Visit The Tip

The Tip of Australia is the most popular destination to visit in Cape York. Once you have made it to the Northern Peninsula Area, you will pass through the communities of Injinoo, Umagico, Bamaga, and Seisia. At Bamaga you will likely want to take a right turn towards Pajinka and go visit the northernmost part of the Australian mainland. There are quite a few side trips to keep you busy in this area, including Somerset Ruins, and Mutee Head or hop on the ferry and go visit Thursday Island and Horn Island. (Our 4wd are not permitted to travel on the ferry).
