Hi im looking at doing the CREB track in late july to early august, im looking at doing it on two KTM dirt bikes (Registered) and just wondering if we need to worry about crossing the daintree river and if we need to get any permits and stuff, all help would be nice as i dont like breaking the law.

thanks luke

High luke, Did that trip a long time ago,Did'nt need permits then and we walked our bikes across with two people per bike. the water was about knee deap.I think one bike took a little to start,that was all the problems we had.

Hi Luke, we drove in late June 2010, probably then about knee deep, locals at Daintree tell everyone track is closed, when we got to the river, sign said closed, but we crossed river in 1 4wd to check gate, gate wasn't locked so we opened it and drove the track, at other end gate closed but not locked. Again sign said at other end track closed, but it seems if the gates aren't locked its ok to drive it, but if their locked and you drive track and get caught your vehicle can be confiscated. If it is open its a great adventure and very scenic, have fun.
Cheers Mark.

Yeah we had the "closed" sign as well but the locals suggested we should be right. We took it on knowing the risks etc etc. We weren't driving all the way to Daintree to be turned around by some sign. Sure enough, passed a few other people on the track too.
I imagine on a bike you could get it done pretty quick.
