I'm coming over to Queensland, in May 2007. Part of the holiday will be a 7 day self drive tour. My provisional schedule is Cairns -> Cape Tribulation (2 nights) -> Atherton -> Undara -> Townsville(2 nights) -> Mission Beach -> Cairns.
1) Can anyone with experience of the area let me know if it can be done in 7 days?
2) How long will the journey from Undara to Townsville take?
3) Can route 63 be driven in May in a normal hire car?
4) How desolate is route 63, my map shows just 1 Road House and nothing else between Greendale and Charters Towers?
