Overview
Cockatours is operated by Rossy, a local who has lived in Cape York for several years, and has ran ecology projects in the Cape for several years. Rossy's background in ecology, his passion for sharing history and his connections with Indigenous groups in Cape York present experiences and opportunities hard to come by elsewhere. As Cockatours is owner-operated, we have the flexibility to make spontaneous decisions for the best and there's always a small touch of adventure along the way somewhere. Most importantly, Rossy is compassionate and respectful and loves sharing his knowledge and the experience with everyone on board. We become a family on tour!

Jean! That's so good to hear, I'm really glad we could accommodate you. The camping tour not only brings the price down but really gives that bit of authentic adventure doesn't it!? As well as a bit more freedom in where we can stay. What you said there is really, really amazing. Thank you kindly, Rossy.
