Hi ExplorOz Reader,

Member Stephen L (Clare SA) has put together a very extensive report on his August 2018 trip to Cape York. Stephen is well known for doing a lot of background research before doing a trip and for searching out significant places of either historical or environmental interest and for sharing his knowledge on such matters in his blogs so you're sure to find this a very informative read. Enjoy the read here.
