September 01, 2023

Hi Everyone,

Cape Melville is open, below is also the latest on the roads, and - there is a little update in the rental vehicles chapter in the Destination Guide.


In This Issue

• Roads and Season

• Cape Melville Open

• Coming Events

• Feedback Updated



It has been a good, busy season, but with many months still ahead, and the September school holidays approaching fast, there is still a lot of adventure left for the rest of this year.

The roads are all open, and the weather has not been as rainy as the previous month.


Cape Melville is open, after the delay, so now is a good time to attack it.

Make the camping bookings online, and hurry up, as the spots are filling and the park will now only be open for three months - until 1. December.


As promised, there will be no big updates in the Destination Guide until the 2024 Edition.

But this small update was necessary, just some detail in the rental vehicles' chapter (about which companies allow you to go where).

It does not mean that you need the latest version of the Guide. Just let me know if you are renting a vehicle and I will send you the latest version (provided you have the Guide purchased within two years).


So the events of the coming month are Normanton Races, Weipa Pig Hunt, Wallaby Creek Festival and Cooktown Hog Hunt.

Good for you to know if you are around and want to include some of these in your trip :-)


And last but not least - Father's Day is this Sunday, but it is not too late to get him a present!

If you haven't got one yet, here is one, and you get it immediately after the purchase :-)



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 :-)
