Map of Cape York
And here is some more Cape York resources - the map that covers the whole Cape York peninsula. This is the map that I use on my trips and it is excellent.

Here is a page with a few different maps of Cape York and the areas around it.

North Queensland Maps
Click on the link above and you will be taken to a selection of maps of north Queensland.

North Queensland is a beautiful area covered in Wet Tropics rainforests and there is just so much to see and do..
In case you do have the time, it's worth having a look around while you are up here.

Queensland Maps
There may be only one more thing you need, and that is good area maps. HEMA maps are the best ones in Australia and the ones that I use myself.
They are the most comprehensive and detailed maps that you find.

Click above for a variety of different Queensland maps that may be of help if you are driving to Cape York through Queensland - whether you come from south or west.

Itinerary Planning / Checking and
Answering Time Consuming Questions

Itinerary planning is time consuming work. And even itinerary checking is, if you want the answer to have any accuracy and reliability.

I understand and appreciate that people like to send in their itineraries for me to check, some people also ask me to make one.

However, I am struggling to make my time to allow me to do it for FREE, since it is time consuming work and I am busy running a business
.

itinerary planning
I usually try to help to the point where I even end up doing it while on the tracks.

I am usually very generous with answering people's questions (particularly if they have been willing to support my small business by buying the Destination Guide), and I spend considerable time, particularly during the Wet Season (which is the planning season for people - so the busy season for me), to answer people's emails, even though I have plenty of other things to do with my time (website and books need updating and improving, website needs maintenance, I am also juggling the FREE newsletters in between, and there is always more books to write and more tracks to do - so there is no shortage of what I could do with my time if I didn't answer the questions).

However, and particularly so during the busy season - it becomes too time consuming for me when people

* send big questions that take time and some thought and considering to reply

* ask me to plan their itinerary (it's a big job to plan a good one that works for you!)

* send me their ininerary and ask me to have a look and tell them if it works

Itinerary Checking

It might seem an easy task and people often say, can you have a quick look.

Well by a quick look I am not going to be able to give you a good answer, I might even give you an answer that is misleading or not correct at all.

It is usually better not to have such answer, and I don't want to be giving wrong answers, so - itinerary checking is a time consuming job, almost as time consuming as making one.
 
There is a lot to consider - the time of the year, the likely conditions of the roads at the time, your gear, equipment and experience - so whether you make it from A to B in a certain time, say a day, is not as easy as working it out for travelling on sealed roads.

Itinerary Planning

Itinerary planning is even more time consuming since on top of the above I also have to consider your and your family's interests, how long you would like to stop in places and how quikly your kids might become restless and need a break.

It is a big job and while I can try do squeeze the itinerary checking into an hour (if it's a reasonable one), the planning definitely takes a lot more.

It is too much time to be able to afford to spend for FREE - since I, just like everyone else, need to make an income and this business has to pay for itself to keep going. 

There is consequently the opportunity of the service of planning or checking your itinerary, if you pay, and depending on your exact requirements, situation and the time of the year (meaning depending on how busy I am myself), I am happy to discuss a price if you contact me - thank you for your understanding.
