Cape York History

The Cape York Region is full of Australian history. From the remains of the Old Telegraph station, Post Office and abandoned tin and gold mines in Punsand Bay to Possession Island where Captain Cook took possession of the east coast of Australia there is plenty of highlights for you to enjoy.
