Beware of crocs, ticks & baits with the dog.
Hope you have a great trip!

Keep the dog under control at all times, crocs call em Mc Doggiez !
Check the weather and track well beforehand, ring a few spots and enquire before setting off.
Take your time.
Have a great trip :))

Leave the dog at home and have a great trip.
I am heading off to the Cape in May next year. I will be allowing 10 weeks to do the trip. I shall be towing a camper trailer. We were last up there 3 years ago. Wewent then in Sept/Oct. This time I want to see a little more water.

What is the actual date in May that you are leaving Mike. If we like it up there this time as much as I think that we will (lots of water included - Ha Ha) may join with you for a spell if O.K.

We are leaving after the QLD 4wd Corroboree which is being held at Mackay on the long weekend in May 2007.I shall be leading the trip with some of my fellow club members. not all of them will have 10 weeks availability for the trip so they will be joining up when they can. They will have a copy of my itinerary.I hope to be leaving Cooktown early June and spending about 4weeks on the cape.

Have never been there myself but a few mates have been going there every year for the last few years. They rekon best not take the dog as they are not allowed in any of the NPs.

I have an Australian Red Cattle dog and have never joined my mates on this trip because of this. Tell me if I have the wrong end of the handle cos I would love to go but will not travel without my little mate.

Thanks Toytruck, we have a blue cattle dog and don't travel without her. May have to rethink trip and travel elsewhere. Not happy about paying hard earned money to National Parks either. Waste of money I think. Paid enough taxes throughout lifetime.

Take it easy with the camper, and travel with company if possible. Try to park the dog somewhere for this trip, because you will not be able to access National Parks if you have a dog with you. We have the same problem when we travel :-(
Those who say something cannot be done should not interrupt the person doing it.
