Hi All, We are taking a trip up top the cape june next year, We planned 6 weeks, 2 weeks to get there, 2 weeks in the cape and then 2 weeks home. Does this sound reasonable?

Speed up the road trip if you can & spend 3 weeks on the Cape or 4 if you have a boat.

Craig I would be more likely to take a week to get up there, 3 weeks on the Cape and two relaxing weeks coming home, theres lots to see and one way the trip home is just the same as the way up unless u come back a different way hmmmm, maybe take another two weeks off :0)

We were planning on going up through the back of QLD and going and doing some fossiciking at Sapphire then onto the lava tubes before heading to cooktown, the nhead back along the coast with a couple of days in Cairns. Another 2 weeks would be ideal if it wasnt for LIFE! eg Kids at school, work etc

Thanks for the tip!

Being an old fella andliving on the Gold Coast I take about 4-5 days (did it in 24 hours once) to get to Cairns, enjoying the view.
Then its two or three weeks on CY, and a week coming back.
I met a mexican once on the bypass track (with a hole in his radiator) who told me he'd be home in Melbourne in 3 days...and he had 2 kids and a heavily pregnant wife and towing a trailer. Sheer madness in my estimation.
