PDR= Peninsular Development Road which is the main road. It is a formed road but mostly unsealed. Suitable for all vehicle types.

OTL= Overland Telegraph Track which involves creek crossings and requires a 4WD vehicle.

So the PDR is the easier.

PDR stands for Peninsula Developmental Road and the OTL stands for Overland Telegraph Line and should be OTT Overland Telegraph Track.
The PDR is the best and the OTT is for hard core 4x4

Paste the below link from the Bureau into your browser and it will show rainfall in Qld year to date as a % of normal.
The lower 60% of the Cape has had 40-60% of average rainfall, the mid 30% jas had 60-80% of average rainfall, the Tip has had 80-100% of average cumulative Jan-Apr 15 rainfall

Suggest you read about the Cape in "Places" in the Navigation bar at the top of Explore Oz page, it should answer a lot of the questions you have judging by your road question above

Just a quick note, Vrilya Point will be closed this season, and apparently there is no set date yet to access Chilli Beach.
