August 28, 2021

Hi Everyone,

Below is the latest road report, the coming events, and the truth about the sale of the Bramwell Station.

• Road Report

• Coming Events

• Feedback Updated



A lot of people already know that Bramwell Station is likely getting sold. Everyone's favourite place to stay - so have we lost it?

Sorry that some wrong-doers have made this needing a mention: These newsletters are subject to the Law of Copyright - the only way to legally spread them is a link to this page or a proper Facebook share (cropping text and photos out of it to use them to build one is own Facebook post is ILLEGAL).

The answer is that if the station's sale goes through, the Tourist Park will remain, even if it will  probably get sold separately.

They would first sell the land and move the cattle, but we won't lose the place to stay.


Another trip down to Cairns for Mark this month, and he first said the road was ok, not mega rough.

On his way back it started to chop up south of Musgrave, corrugations were getting worse.

Musgrave to Coen was ok, Telegraph Road (Weipa-Bamaga turnoff to Bramwell) was ok, just some dips to slow down for.

Both of the Bypass Roads were ok, corrugations had been fixed south of the Jardine River.


The events of the coming month are Weipa Fishing Classic, Weipa Pig Hunt, Mapoon Barra Bash, Torres Strait Cultural Festival, Conquer the Corrugations, and Wallaby Creek Festival.

All great fun and worth including in your trip if you are around :-)
