About Heritage Tours

Heritage Tours

Heritage Tours is a Cairns owned and operated safari company, established in 1989. We have been crossing the Cape area since our establishment. Our aim is to show you the most beautiful spots on Cape York and, with this in mind, we have developed an itinerary suitable for everyone, with activity options available to suit all age groups. We have developed equipment equal to the best, but kept it simple and practical to meet all the needs of our safari.

Our itinerary allows for maximum time to be spent in those areas we have found to be the most appealing to everyone. It is based on Cape York, so we avoid spending your time around the Cairns area. Our driver-guides are fully-trained in all areas of knowledge and hold current first aid certificates for your peace of mind.

You will travel in purpose built air-conditioned four wheel-drive tour vehicle with forward-facing reclining coach style seats and footrests. Each tour vehicle has panoramic view windows and is equipped with a road cam, TV and an on board toilet. The tour vehicles are specially designed for the outback and built for comfort of our passengers.

Heritage Tours Cape York and Kimberley

With a maximum of 25 passengers, you will have the opportunity to enjoy Cape York, The Kimberley and Outback Australia at its best. You are promised nothing short of a memorable adventure into remote Australia on a unique and quality tour. Our tour vehicles are equipped with portable satellite phone for your safety and peace of mind, as well as P.A. System, first aid kits and off road equipment. All vehicles comply with the Queensland Department of Transport’s regulations.

Cape York

Cape York… believed to be the first stepping stone in Australian history, a place of historical painting sites and a vast range of cultures. Then came the first Europeans, followed by the early pioneers and explorers, such as Leichhardt, Kennedy, and the Jardines. Modern times came, bringing an uncertain future… mines began and vanished, but reappeared again, a spaceport in the midst.

Cape York covers over 207,000 square kilometres, an area almost the size of Victoria, and has a population of around only 15,000 gathered into a few small communities… this makes Cape York truly one of the last frontiers.

Vegetation is extremely varied, including eucalyptus or melaleuca forests, heathlands, and dense rainforest to open plains. Wildlife is abundant, with over 90 different mammal species, including the cuscus, tree kangaroo, dugong, and northern quoll. There are a large number of reptiles, with over 150 species, and these are often sighted. Just double this last figure and you have an idea of the abundance of birdlife on Cape York, including a few rare birds such as the palm cockatoo, golden shouldered parrot, and eclectus parrot.

With all this to offer, the Cape is certainly a world within itself, a special world to discover, so come along with Heritage Tours and experience it for yourself.

"We had a fantastic trip & commend you on your organisation.  Everything went very smoothly.  Most especially we want to thank Luke & Genevieve. 

They were absolutely the best & made our trip so enjoyable. 

Nothing was ever a problem & our comfort & enjoyment was their priority.  Luke was very informative & explained everything so clearly, and Genevieve was our “mother hen” making sure we were all well fed & cared for.  They are both an asset to your business."

Shirley & Dennis J

"Have just returned from an excellent 11 day camping trip to Cape York, plus extra day on Horn Island.  All aspects more than met our expectations.  Each day was carefully planned and run, ensuring we were well cared for.  The camping equipment was good and every day brought positive surprises.   Our driver Luke enthusiastically shared his detailed knowledge of the history, landscape and wildlife;  Genevieve ensured we ate well and both were so happy and personable throughout that it was a delight to travel with them."

"Helen and I want to convey our thanks to your company for the experience we enjoyed with Alex and Charlotte on the camping safari leaving Broome on June 26th , this was our first time we have been camping and we thoroughly the experience.  Your vehicle was very comfortable to travel in, is well set up.  Alex and Charlotte were very well organised in setting up, with passengers assistance and repacking again. Alex’s driving was very safe and his commentary was very informative. Likewise Charlotte’s meal preparation well organised with plenty to eat, working under not the easiest conditions.

  We have often been told of the scenery in the Kimberley’s and were always looking for a way to see it and your organisation filled our expectations, we seen places we could never got with our own vehicle.  

Thanks again, to all especially Alex and Charlotte, we hope we may be able to do the Cape York trip at another time"
