Cape York trip 2018

by Robert
(Sydney)

Hi

We are planning to take the boat to Thursday Island and Seisia with our 4wd and off-road camper, then return to Cairns down one of the roads (to be decided).

Boat tickets are only available in October 2018.

From our research, October should be dry and fine for the return trip.

What will the road conditions be like, either on the PDR or Telegraph.

Hi Robert & Karen,
by: Katrin

We had unseasonal rains in October 2017 which turned the roads into a soggy mess for quite some time.

All about the weather patterns and how it affects the roads, month to month - is in the Free Pocket Guide

Road conditions are in the newsletter that comes with the Free Pocket Guide (it is impossible to predict the exact conditions, because there could be unseasonal exceptions, but generally the roads are corrugated in October. The rest on that subject - how wet it is - is in the Free Pocket Guide).

All the rest of the information on all the main roads, and tracks including the Old Telegraph Track (PDR is the road to Weipa - not the Tip), with all the tips from us locals in Bamaga - is in the full Destination Guide

Happy planning :-)
