Nissan Patrol with trailer attempting Gunshot, a creek crossing on the Old Telegraph Track, Cape York, Far North Queensland. / The journey up to the tip of Cape York is a memorable adventure / Loved it!
Cape York - Telegraph Track, QLD. The journey follows the tracks formed by tough pioneers who built the overland Telegraph line in the 1880’s. It’s a very remote and rough track that should only be attempted by experienced 4WD enthusiasts with practical experience in winching and digging out stranded vehicles. The best plan is to travel in convoy with two or more vehicles for mutual support.
Remote camping spots: Jardine River, Cape York. At the northern tip of Queensland lies the Cape York Peninsula, accessible by air, or road during the drier months of the year. It’s a hot and humid part of the world even in the cooler winter months but has some of the most dramatic and colourful scenery the state has to offer.
