Cape York News #052 - Vrilya Point Updates, Last Events of the Season, Dog Booklet to Come Out
October 28, 2016

Hi everyone,

The weather is definitely warming up, the season is definitely quieting down, and some businesses are closing for the season.

Below are the updates on Vrilya Point; the last events that are still left of the year; and the news on the Destination Guide :-)


In This Issue

• Vrilya Point Updates

• Last Events of the Season

• Dog Booklet to Be Added to the Destination Guide

• Feedback Always Welcome



There is actually not so much news in this update, it is more to clear some confusion.

There are too many people asking now, that they hear that Vrilya Point is open.

The answer is that the track to Vrilya remains closed, because of the Crystal Creek Bridge that is still broken.


There are still a couple of events left this year, in November there are a few different races and Melbourne Cup celebrations during the first week of the month.

And in December there are Christmas Carols in various places including Cairns (Edmonton), Port Douglas, Yorkeys Knob and Thursday Island.


Also after a whole year of getting around on the peninsula with our dog, I have decided to write a separate booklet with detail on travelling with your dog/s.

It will be ready to go with the next year's edition of the Destination Guide, and as in every other case - will be available for you even if you buy the Guide any time before the Booklet is out :-)


I really appreciate any kind of feedback on the Destination Guide.

Please let 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 travels to those on the road!!

Have a great day :-)
