Being a man who likes a drink every now and then I am a bit concerned about the advice I am getting about taking a beer or 3 up the cape. Does anyone have any info on this subject. I want to take my own. I dont want to be searched or buy it at a inflated rate. Any advice would be appreciated. Travelling north in Sept and Oct.

See active post no. 13264 and post no. 5088 from the archives. They may help clear things up.

We're going to the Cape in early September as well. Hope we both have a great time.

Alan,

We will be in Port Douglas about the 5/9 I think. Proposing to head north to the Cape and the 4wd and us are heading back on the 17/9 on the cargo boat, MV Trinity Bay from Seisia. Takes 2 days to get back to Cairns, I think. I am soooooo looking forward to this trip. Like you, we also like a wine/beer or two at night but......if we have to pay more for it, so be it!

Yes, I think you can buy it, but you are limited to 2 litres of wine and a case of light beer, I think.

Alan and others there are lots of places that have alcohol restrictions.
And us being visiters should respect the communitys and other places that have laws on alcohol .
Its not only native areas.
Sporting feilds.
Trains
Buses
Plains
Even the streets around your town.
Movies
etc
etc
etc.
I was talking to ambo driver at Coen last year he is a white fellow and his job is to help the communitys to clean up and better health.
In the past 2 or three years its the younger kids he has been trying to educate and its starting to sink in and now these kids are telling there mums and dads a better way of living which cant be a bad thing.

Just a few thoughts
Eric
