You should be OK, when we went two years ago the worst of the by-pass road was north of Bramwell.

Hi Lived in Weipa for previous 20 years and know the Cape pretty well and you will have no problem travelling anywhere up there with a caravan at that time of year.Dont attempt any part of the Old Telegraph Line except from Heathlands to Sailor Creek only got a crossing at Sailor Creek itself which is a bit hairy but you have a rocky bottem.Happy Capeyorking

Yes you will be able to do that - if it has not been recently graded you may get a few corrugations - just take it easy - Cheers

Road conditions

Just remember at the moment there is nowhere to go from Bramwell. See the link. Politics between council and national parks threatens road closure.

Better have a plan B.

No need for a plan B

The road will be open

This is not the first time there is a bit of political chest beating

Fact is that there is NO WAY the road will be closed. Keep to your plans
