If you drive to the Cape, make sure you drive "The Telegraph Track" from Bramwell Junction to the South Jardine River. Its best to go in a group with other 4WD owners. Although some tagalong tours are available. The camping, scenery, history are fantastic. Make sure your vehicle is in top condition as some of the track is rough, especially... More

Excellent trip with Mick our intrepid leader who managed to deal with mechanical problems, give valuable information on flora,fauna and geography, cook excellent meals and handle the early morning grumbles. Group dynamics are always interesting . Despite some differences our group managed to incorporate and tolerate different personalities. This trip is definitely a camping trip and you are expected to... More

It sails inside the Barrier Reef all the way up along Cape York coast, stopping at Lockhart River (no berth there) and berthing at Horn Island, Thursday Island and Sesia (Bamaga) before returning to Cairns. Its a 5... More
