The drive from Cairns is approximately 1,000km, with only the first 300km being on a sealed bitumen road. A great adventure can be had with this part of the holiday alone. In the early part of the year April – June you may encounter several ‘washouts’ on your journey. However, when the school holidays arrive, you will find the number of vehicles on the ‘track’ will increase, as will the corrugation. For many, getting there is just the start of a lifetime experience, very few ever forget.
