I just heard from Matt Muggeridge that Cape
Melville is open.
Also, I don't often put event reports into newsletters, but I cannot
help but report on Laura Aboriginal Dance Festival - the best event on
the Peninsula, and the best
Aboriginal event in Australia.
In This Issue:
• Cape Melville Is Open
• Laura Aboriginal Dance Festival Was Great As Ever
• Guide Book Feedback Always Welcome
MELVILLE IS OPEN
When researching the track conditions for the last newsletter, I got
opposite answers on the conditions in Cape
Melville and Starcke
Thanks Matt Muggeridge for replying
We just returned
from Cape Melville
We drove the Starcke
It was slow going, with an average
It had been closed recently for back
This is early compared to the last year, when Cape
Melville only opened in August.
The poor Wet Season we had this year,
may yet help to open many other
smaller tracks early.
ABORIGINAL DANCE FESTIVAL WAS GREAT
I am just back from Laura Aboriginal Dance Festival and despite
the fact that there is room for some improvement, it
remains the greatest event on the
Peninsula thanks to our Aboriginal culture.
It is easy to forget just how
beautiful and rich it
is, when you don't see it every day.
Our Aboriginal communities mean
so much more than alcohol
Most of our Aboriginal people live peacefully in
free communities and teach their
children to dance and pass on their rich culture to the future
This event is a great reminder - watch
photos and videos on this new
page about Laura
Aboriginal Dance Festival - there
is no better Aboriginal event in Australia.
I really appreciate any kind of
on the Destination Guide.
me know if you enjoyed it while planning before the trip, and while using the
information once on the trip.
If you get any questions about
anything, please feel welcome to contact me.
That's all for this time - happy planning, and happy travelling if you
are on the tracks!!
Have a great day :-)
