Here is the link to our latest blog post in which we explore the area known as the NPA at the very top of Cape York. Almost 80 photos included along with my usual writing. I hope you enjoy the ride.

A thoroughly enjoyable read and sounded like the makings of some terrific memories!

Hi Cuppa,

A very good read and the pictures do really do it justice. Have been to a few of the places you wrote about, and agree with many of your comments regarding prices and quality of food etc. we stayed at Punsand Bay, but when we return, we are planning to stay at Loyalty Beach.

Thanks Macca. If you haven't already, check out Alau Beach campground at Umagico. We only visited, didn't stay, but it looked nice & the woman running it at the time was very pleasant. A bit more 'low key' than the other campgrounds.

Thanks Cuppa for the recommendation, it does look pretty good from the photos on line. Do you remember the prices at all as compared to the others?

I think it was $15 per night per person unpowered. Not sure about powered.

Brings back good memories, and a great blog.

We were going to stay at Alau but hearing some of the reports of the wild parties, cars being broken into, we stayed at Loyalty Beach and it was quiet and no problems what so ever.

All things being equal, we hope to head back this year again, but with no time restraints.

Stephen L, Thanks.
All the negative social media reports were well over-hyped I believe. They applied equally to Loyalty Beach & Alau. When I spoke to the lady at Alau I was told that it had been one person doing the thieving at *both* campgrounds, & that he had been caught. We stayed at Loyalty Beach & saw nothing of what socal media had been full of. I saw & heard no mention of wild parties. If we go back up there again I would happy to stay at either but if I had to choose one or the other I think I'd go for Alau.
