This is the big bucket list item – Pajinka, ‘The Tip’ – the most northern point of the Australian mainland, where you can stand with the sign and get that photo. The seas, breeze, beaches and views are just incredible. We recommend taking your time and exploring the surrounding area.

Fishing Charters & Island Tours

The fishing up here is epic! You can fish the two oceans as well as the Jardine and Jacky Jacky River systems with their swamps, everglades and lagoons. If you don’t have your own boat, we can assist you in booking your fishing adventures with one of our fishing charters. Or for the ultimate adventure Coastal Rotors offer half day and full day heli fishing charters, taking off from the beach, right here at Punsand Bay.

Roko Island is another popular destination up here.

Cape York Wilderness Area

The Cape York wilderness area is home to a diverse array of wildlife, including 31 species of frogs, 133 species of reptiles, 321 bird species and 72 mammal species. Also home to a large population of salt water crocodiles and if you are lucky (or unlucky), you may spot the resident crocodile known as ‘Gary’ who is guessed to be over 4m long.

There are some wonderful waterfalls on the south side of the Jardine River which are beautiful spots to cool off in the clean, freshwater. We highly recommend visiting Fruit bat Falls, Elliot Falls or Twin Falls, either on your way to or from Punsand Bay.
