The most northern tip of Australia (Pajinka) is a must-do Aussie Bucket List destination located at the tip of the Cape York Peninsula in Far North Queensland.

There are three walking trails to access the tip of Australia sign, the top one being the most common one from the car park, and the bottom and side tracks which are dependent upon the tides. Be mindful of the slippery rocks.

When you get to ‘The Tip’, there are views of two islands. One of the islands in view to your left is Yorke Island and Eborac Island is to the right. Frangipani Bay is located to the west.
