Cape York Trip

Recommended Posts

We are presently planning a trip to Cape York in July/August of this year and would be very interested in hearing from others that have done a similar trip. We are wondering if it is feasable to tow our 16 ft 2006 X-country all the way to Bamaga along the development road. The van has a similar configuration and suspension to new ATVs.

We were also wondering if it is possible to take this rig along some of the off-roads to some of the National Parks such as Iron Range and Mungkan-Kaanju.

What other places would members recommend as "must see" places on the Cape, as well as suitable camp sites for over-night stops or a few days.

Would appreciate any advice that would be forth coming from all members.

We towed our previous caravan a Coromal Pioneer Corvair (17.8 ft) all the way to Seisisa with Jeep in July 2010 - the track was as rough as in places, we took it carefully and got there and back without a single screw loose. We did take precautions like placing spare towels over the dishware and stuffing the odd pillow into the pots cupboard, just to stop everything jumping around. We also travelled very slowly over the worst of the corrugations and we knew we were on them in the Jeep!! :lol: Once back home a good detail and unless you were told you wouldn't have even guessed where we had been on our 10 month trip around Oz - in fact the people that bought our van thought it had been stored in the shed and rarely used until we told them otherwise.

You have a Kedron, built to go there in the first place :lol: Drive to conditions and you can't go wrong. Enjoy the trip - wish we were going again too!
