Came down the Bloomfield Track in June (Prado and Phoenix) rained from Rossville to Cairns. Yes! it did get very interesting in a couple of places and you are right about the wind I took the same photo of Archer Point but had to steady the camera on the foundations of the old lighthouse!!

G'day eerfree , we had showers for a few days befor and rain most of the way up , so we had a few fun spots , the track is fairley good these days , but with the wind we were getting there was a few small trees down ,, as for Archer Point , was there Xmas 2003 , the water was as flat as a tack , over the weekend you were flat out standing up , we had gail warnings most of the week ,, one of the prices we pay to live in paradise !!
All the best Neil ..

A few years since I was up there.
Is that Bloomfield crossing still a loose stone causeway?
Subject to high tide?
It used to be over a metre deep at high tide, but only shallow at low tide.

Can't clearly make it out in your photos. Looks like it has been improved.

G'day John C ,
this was the first time we have been all the way through , been in from both ends , yes , the causeway is now concrete , it was upgraded a few years ago , still very subject to tides and flooding which i think a bit of both was this chappy's problem , the bituman goes all the way to Cape Trib and the track is now mostly a formed road , not the challenge it was , such is progress !!

All the best ,, Neil ..
