the Destination Guide is out!
It is the only time of the year that I bother

Cape York news instead :-)

2023 IS OUT
The 2023 Edition of Destination
Cape York just came out on Sunday 1. January 2023
(you now get
the new edition when you buy through this page on the website).
Like every year before,
the Guide has again been reviewed, improved
and updated on every detail.
* including roads
camp spots with the latest, and free
* and the latest
fuel prices, of late 2022, on the way to the Tip!
and saving on fuel alone save you more than the price of the Guide :-)
Much of the focus this year was a massive overhaul of all the local
As so many had closed due
to COVID, the Guide was in a need of a clean-out, and it
was heartbreaking to see how many needed deleting.
There were also some new ones added that had popped up, so all the
* accommodation, camping and caravan parks,
* things to see and do in places,
* places to eat - cafes, restaurants and pubs,
* shops, food vans, local seafood outlets,

as it was possible to do.
Plus all the rest ...

* Local radio stations reviewed

* All other chapters
reviewed and new info added where needed
savers - with all the tips you will save your money back many times
what was NEW this year?
(in case you know that I like to do something new each
The big new thing was
so many questions about a similar Guide on the Gulf, I decided to do
in the area and put it into a new Guide.
Very handy if you'd like
to do Cape York on a loop trip, one way via the east coast
and Cairns, and the other way via Karumba and the rest of the Gulf.
Putting it together is a big work that is underway, and it is hard to
say at this stage when I get it out.
But as soon as it is out, there
will be a Gulf Savannah Guide written in the same style and detail,
that so many people have been asking for!
I will let you know any news on it in the newsletters :-)
If you haven't bought the Destination Cape York before, please make
sure to find out about everything else that is there by
the way down, as the above is
only this year's updates :-)
If you already have the Guide and want to update:
if you bought during the last two years please get in
touch (whether by answering to this email or
via the website's contact page),
and I will send you the updated version :-)
(please be patient

requests and each one
to do, I will be doing my best but it could take up to a
