Forsayth is idyllically located in the central base of Cape York, centrally located between Cairns, the tourist capital of Queensland, and the fishing mecca of Karumba.

The village consists of approximately 75 people, and is precisely 40km south of Georgetown and 70km west of Einasleigh. It is set amongst picturesque granite, volcanic, and sandstone hills and ranges.


The climate is very comfortable ranging from up to 40 degrees in summer and down to 5 degrees in winter. Although summer can be hot here, it is more comfortable as there is not the humidity of the tropics. Winter can be quite cool in the early mornings and generally results in near perfect days.

The wet season usually begins in December and lasts through until March/April with the wettest month being February. The annual rainfall is around 800mm. The town can be regularly isolated by flood waters for short periods during the wet season.


Forsayth is set in mountainous terrain consisting of granite and mineralised sedimentary rocks. Forsayth is surrounded by granite boulder hills. There are also many gorges in the mountains nearby. Cobbold and Copperfield Gorges are the popular tourist attractions. The region is gold mining country and is rocky with generally poor soil quality. There are numerous picturesque spots for picnics and drives including the world famous Agate Creek.
