Dale Forsyth is a local North Queenslander of 25+ years & is the owner of Cairns To Cooktown 4WD Tours, he is also generally your Driver on your fabulous day tour.
Put simply, Dale discovered the beauty of the Cooktown area years ago and by establishing Cairns To Cooktown 4WD Tours, he is now able to make this still relatively remote part of Australia accessible to many more people.
“Cooktown has a sense and a feel of community rarely found in larger cities”, and it has been said many times that Cooktown remains unspoilt by the urgency of modern life & indeed, is a must see!
Dale would certainly agree with that.
