I am not aware of a vehicle ferry between Seisia and Weipa. Most freight goes to Weipa by road as the road is generally good and it is a long way to freight goods by sea Cairns being the closest practical port. The drive from Seisia to Weipa could be done in a day by short cutting thru Batavia but it would be a shame to miss Fruitbat and Twin Falls. Cheers Rob

Hello
A vehicle ferry as such no, but shipping company yes. You could get your car put into a shipping container and then on to the ship. Freight into Weipa is about 50/50 water , road and there are I think at least 2 shipping companies that travel from Cairns up the East coast around the tip and down the Gulf to Weipa.Try Endeavour Shipping in Cairns . I have never shipped a car but use all the companies from time to time and have had no problems.
cheers.
