Climate Change poses one of the greatest threats to marine and rainforest environments worldwide and presents a global issue requiring global action. Climate change is becoming a major threat to the biodiversity of the World Heritage listed Wet Tropics Rainforest.
Global warming could decrease the habitat of many endemic vertebrate species which live in the rainforests, leaving only isolated pockets of rainforest for them to live in.
While higher water temperatures and higher acidity of seawater, impacts the Great Barrier Reef. It effects coral growth and survival, with the effects of Coral Bleaching evident in the Far North sections of the GBR Marine Park.
We encourage our guests to join us in a commitment of sustainable practices, including using energy saving appliances, low energy bulbs, reduction of waste and litter and the use of environmentally friendly detergents into daily living.
As well measuring travel emissions, through organisations such as Climate Friendly, who provide emissions calculators and offsets which contribute to the growth of the renewable energy.
We actively fundraise for the Cairns Turtle Rehabilitation Centre, who rescue and rehabilitate sick and injured marine turtles. Funds raised for the Centre provide for the turtles’ food bill and enables tourism businesses and their guests to engage with and support turtle conservation and research.
What a brilliant trip. We went with a group of 11, some never ridden a bike before (seriously), all the way to myself who has raced motocross and enduro for years. Complete mix of rideable terrain and challenging trails to keep everyone happy. Great food, great people, extremely capable bike for the job at hand. Looking forward to returning for a longer trip.
We just finished the 7 day bucket list Cairns to the Tip Tour, which was an awesome adventure that we had an incredible time on. It was very well run and supported by the team from start to finish. Bikes were reliable, tracks were great, camp spots were good and the food was fantastic.
Just finished our first trip with these guys and what a cracker of a trip it was. Only did the three day one, but will be back 100% to go all the way to top next time. New bikes, can’t complain about that. Roy knows a lot about the area and shared his knowledge of Cape York and Cairns with us. Awesome feeds on the way too. Highly recommend these guys. Can’t wait to come back next year to go all the way.
Absolutely great time and some top, flat out tracks. The boys are easy to get along with and made it such a great experience for us. Thanks legends.
A big thanks to the CYMA crew, we have just returned back to New Zealand after travelling over with a group of mates to do the 8 day trip to the Cape, and loved every minute of it! We would highly recommend Roy, Renae, Westie & Graham to anyone looking for an off road adventure in Australia, any day. Once we arrived and got going on the bikes we relaxed straight away, as absolutely everything was sorted for us, all we had to do was follow the leader. We met some great people along the way, and on the trip we went to some stunning places that will give us life long memories. We look forward to catching up with you guys again soon.
Unreal, top spot, the best, you should go. The people are the nicest you could meet and will do whatever they can to make your trip all that it could be.
This really was the trip of a lifetime. I hadn't been to the tip of Australia and thought that the first time would be in a 4WD, but it turned out to be on a motorbike with these legends. They have been doing it for 29 year and it shows. Saw so many amazing things and got to go along the Old Telegraph Track, which was amazing. Stunning camp sites, great guys and a well-run experience. We got a few flats and I came off a few times, but they were always there to help. Loved every minute of it!
Me and my son Charlie recently did the Cairns to Cape York dirt bike trip. It was an amazing bonding experience for us. The country ever changing was beautiful, it’s reminded me why I love Australia. The boys Roy, Jeremy and Westy made the whole experience humble. All round fun with great professional attitude. The camps are special and so was the banter, me and Charlie had a ball.
Highly recommend Roy and his team; seamlessly organised a trip with 11 blokes and it was an incredible experience, from the first email to the last km. The riding through the Daintree and Cape Trib speaks for itself, bloody epic, and Roy and Jeremy were amazing hosts and guides. We’ll be back!
It was 20 years ago I did my first trip with Roy, best holiday ever. I went again in 98 and looking at another in 2017.
Excellent Adventure! Great riding, food & company. VERY well organized. First looked at doing a Cape ride over 10 years ago, glad I finally ticked it off. I'll be doing another CYMCA ride, one day. 5 stars.
As good as it gets. Roy, Westy and young Jake made the trip for us and would be the best guides in FNQ by a mile. Trip of a lifetime!
Had a great time on the 3 day ride with Roy, really enjoyed our time with him and the places we visited. Fantastic accommodation and awesome food everywhere we stayed, couldn't have asked for more. Thanks again Roy we will be back.
Great 8 days. Had a ball right from the start. Mark was brilliant and Roy was fantastic sharing his knowledge at nights, I recommend this trip to anyone who wants to go to the tip.
I booked a Cape York 8 day ride for myself and 5 mates through Renae. She went out of her way to offer advice and accommodate us. The ride itself was everything we had hoped for and more. Roy and his team, including our gourmet bush chief Westie, were fantastic. I can't recommend Cape York Motorcycles Adventures enough, don't get sucked into going with any of the other imposters, there is a reason Roy and Renae have been doing this for 30 years.
I went on a trip with my Dad and Roy a few years ago, which was one of the most fun and memorable experiences I've had. It was an awesome bonding experience and we saw some of the most beautiful parts of Australia. He knows the country really well, with lots of hidden places to visit. He was also great at adapting to any situation; we were impressed with the trackside maintenance on the bikes. We had good laughs the whole way along, probably nothing better than a week of riding bikes by day, cracking a cold beer at night and enjoying good company. Hopefully get an opportunity to go all the way up to the Cape another time!
This is an amazing family business with quality tours, that you really have to experience to believe. Guaranteed adventure and enjoyment!
Outstanding trip. Great catering for different riding capabilities. Loved CREB track challenge. Would do it again.
