Woolworths in Weipa is a full size store with everything you need. Cooktown shops are good too, but the "supermarkets" in Bamaga & Seisa will have most things you will need. Just check used by dates. We found a lot of old food there. And avoid the meat from Bamaga / Seisa. Its been Vac sealed somewhere, probably Cairns, but much of it was rubbish and the bags had been split at some stage, and obviously not kept cold / frozen for the trip nth. If you have a fridge/freezer, stock up in Weipa, and you'll be fine.

P.S.
The bread on the cape is the best you will get anywhere.

Donks:

Is there a butcher at Seissa?

You also have never had bread like our sons make. Bakers De%^&ht in Burwood, Sydney and Manuka, Canberra. The eldest one also filled the fridge with éclairs one day for me. Took me a month to clean up all the flour and mess. But the chocolate éclairs made it worthwhile.

back in 2006 the butcher shop in Weipa sold great melt in ya mouth rib fillet. we bought some for dinner when we arrived there, then because it was so good we went back the next day and got a couple more steaks. we cooked those steaks at Pennefeather river and they were better then the first ones, so much so that when we returned back through Weipa a few days later we stopped in to get a few more. unfortunately the butcher closed at 12 (it was Saturday) and we were there about 5 minutes to late, so had to go without.
