8. Cape York
Some of the last, truly unspoiled land in the world, Cape York is that big pointy bit of land sticking out of the northeast of Australia. The Cape is home to only about 18,000 people, most of whom are Aborigines spread out over 77,000 square miles of rain forest, savanna, and more biomes than you can shake an earth science textbook at. Presumably, because this is Australia, 76,000 of those square miles likely contain thousands of plants and animals that will kill you.
