Cape York Day 16-18

Cooktown is a sweet little town. We explored the sights the morning after we camped there, checking out the Grassy Hill lookout and the Captain Cook statue. We stopped off at Bloomfield Falls, the first of the waterfalls we explored in the region. They are magnificent! Out of the waterfalls we visited it had the… Read More Cape York Day 16-18

Cape York Day 9-10

Our last few days have been based at the Loyalty Beach Campground. This spot is perfect after bush camping on the Old Telegraph Track!
