lozza, My son and his girlfriend left Bamaga last Monday (10th may) for a holiday in SE Qld. He said 4x4s have been getting through for a couple of weeks now. There are a couple of deepish water crossings but he expects to get through in his Hilux - and I expect him for the family roast next Monday.
By 6th June you should be fine.
We leave in late June for 6 months around Aus. but have elected to fly from Cairns to the Cape to save time for places furthur afield. We have the advantage of a vehicle to check out all the spots while we are up there.
Have a great trip

Enjoy the trip - could you do me (and I suspect a lot of other forumites) a favour and post the track conditions and any special things to look out for (eg exiting Palm Ck coming south) when you get back.

I was talking to a park ranger in Cooktown on Friday, he said if your going through the coast road up to Cape Melville he would suggest you speak to them before you leave. Lakefield is still not open to pass all the way through. It is expected to open all the way within two weeks. You can get to Kalpowar Crossing but no further. We are leaving Cooktown on the 14th June going thru to Cape Melville (hopefully).
Sorry for not getting back to you sooner but the better half was wishy washee about unknown people coming with us.
Have a good time

Hi Geoff,
We will be leaving cooktown on about the 11th,not going through Cape Melville.Thanks for the info.

I understand how your wife feels,I probably should have meant it is nice to meet other people on a trip of this nature,however we are not actually wanting to tag along.

Regards Lozza.
