LATE WET SEASON AND THE PDR
So, as Cooktown, and many other places on the Cape had declared the Wet
Season 2022 as a hopeless one, here we go, we all got a late
PDR is still closed and we all heard that the rivers have all been up,
with Wenlock and Archer as the deepest ones. Some travellers stranded
for two weeks, stuck between some rivers, and
running out of supplies (not to mention wasting a big
part, if not all,
of their time planned for the trip!).
Locals have also been
restricted whether in the NPA, Weipa or Cooktown
as Laura, McLeod, Myall, Bushy, Little Annan and many other creeks and
rivers have been
up and down.
But in fact, it is easy
to forget that exactly the same happened last year. Still,
I got a lot of questions from people asking if it was a good idea to
travel in April, some even with caravans. My answer was, and always is
- April is still a wet season month. Some years you might get away, but
you are taking a risk, so it is a good idea to have a plan B and make
IN THE DESTINATION GUIDE
April is the month I do
updates of all of the prices in the Destination Guide.
I cannot do it with the January updates, because most of the local Cape
businesses only decide on their prices for the year in the end of
the wet season.
So, all the
accommodation, tours and other small businesses' prices were updated
one by one, all done first hand, mostly by ringing.
As always, it's hard to get it 100%, but it's as close as possible. As
little as possible of the rest was changed, making sure you don't
have to reprint it.
If you already have the Guide
(bought within the last two years),
the updated version is included in your purchase.
Just give me an email and I will send you the latest version (be
if you don't get a really quick reply - I will have a
lot of people asking).
If you don't already have the Guide - it is the last updates to
the Destination Guide
for this year - a great time to buy - there will be no more big changes
this year :-)
And finally, with the
Mothers' Day around the corner, there is a present
for your adventurous Mum :-)
She might already have the Cape on her plans, or you might give her a
whole new idea!
