As of Winter - Spring 2018 this site is getting upgraded, and the domain name changed from the original www.cape-york-australia.com to the new www.capeyorkaustralia.com While this is happening, you will find some things under construction, and some photos blurrier than normal, as their new dimensions affect their quality (until they get changed). They need changing one by one - with hundreds of pages it will take some time before the whole site looks good again, but I am gradually working on it as quick as I can.
At the same time the inbox is also getting done, which means that there can be a few temporary faults (some of the email might temporarily not come through) - if you get an (incorrect) error message saying the inbox is full, please go to the Contact Us page and fill the form as that comes through better. I am working on getting it all back to the usual - and meanwhile really sorry for the inconvenience!
