Generations of family members with a shared love for adventure, Lance and his son Matthew embarked on an unforgettable dirt bike tour across Cape York in Australia. An epic experience that Lance had shared with his father Athol years earlier, it was time to pass the legacy onto the younger generation.
What memorable way could be better than creating new stories from old traditions? Celebrating Lance’s 50th birthday together promised spectacular views and thrilling rides with an old friend, Roy Kunda who was still leading the way with his team at Cape York Motorcycle Adventures still leading the way — all part of this beautiful journey through life!
The night before the tour started, they discussed all the things they were looking forward to on their journey. It felt like a lifetime ago when Lance taught Matthew how to ride his first bike as a child, and here they were embarking on the grand adventure they’d spoken about so many times!
Dirt Biking allows you to test your physical abilities like balance and agility while enjoying the outdoors. From casually cruising along wide open stock roads to trailblazing through rainforest terrain, walking through creeks, and tackling steep hills, dirt biking offers something for everyone, no matter their level of experience or enthusiasm.
On the day of departure, excitement filled their thoughts as they threw a leg over the bike and left Cairns for the iconic tip of Cape York. The remote and unforgiving landscape seemed so far away from everything else — no phones ringing or emails buzzing — just pure untouched nature surrounding them and a trail full of skills challenges ahead is every motorcyclist’s dream!
The Cape York Peninsula in Far North Queensland is a truly spectacular and unique destination. It is the largest unspoiled wilderness area in Australia, boasting an incredibly diverse mix of natural wonders such as untouched rainforest, secluded white sand beaches, and majestic mountains. This one-of-a-kind environment is home to some of Australia’s most iconic creatures including kangaroos, wallabies, cassowaries, and crocodiles. Not only does it provide stunning views both on land and sea, but also a huge variety of activities including hiking, fishing, and bird-watching — perfect for nature enthusiasts!
Lance and Matthew met some other travelers who had come along for similar reasons: celebrating life’s milestones while reconnecting with nature and each other — fathers bonding with sons/daughters or CEOs bonding with teams… it’s a truly inspiring way to create lifetime mateship and memories!
As dusk faded in the sky each evening after long days of riding amidst stunning scenery, everyone gathered around the campfire sharing stories about what made these trips so special — moments that will stay etched in their minds forever. This isn’t just any ordinary vacation — it is an experience where time stands still and memories are made every single minute!
