Cape York Peninsula (northernmost point of mainland Australia)


New Mapoon, Australia (AU)
Cape York Peninsula is a large remote peninsula located in Far North Queensland at the tip of the state of Queensland, Australia, the largest unspoiled wilderness in eastern Australia and one of the last remaining wilderness areas on Earth. Although the land is mostly flat and about half of the area is used for grazing cattle, and wildlife is threatened by introduced species and weeds, the relatively undisturbed eucalyptus wooded savannas, tropical rainforests and other types of habitat are now recognized for their global environmental significance.
