That was the same day the Little Annan and Macleod Rivers flooded and cut off the new all weather sealed road ;-) Cheers Rob

Does this mean the end of Cooktown as we know it? I know lots of the locals reckon it would spoil the place and make it into a resort town like Port Douglas. Lets hope not.

Yes that is the road. But by Rob's reply above, the road may now have been washed away.
