Day 14. Bamaga & Weipa road junction to Bramwell Junction Road House via Morton Telegraph Station. 114kms. Almost all dirt but a big improvement in the road surface and a big reduction in the vehicles as many boats turned off heading to a fishing tournament in Weipa.
Day 12. A very welcome rest day in Coen. Small town with a pub (good pub grub), general store,Indigenous Cultural centre. Has a collection of locally improvised gold mining equipment.
Day 10. Hann River Road House to Musgrave Road House.These were originally Telegraph stations. Spaced a distance of 63kms as this could be ridden by the telegraph maintenance crews on horse back in a day. For us on a bike on a formed dirt road this was a shorter ride arriving about 1pm. Lots of creek crossings followed by steep sandy climbs. What varied country we live in and water makes a huge difference. See pics
Departing Ravenshoe headed for Mareeba and looking forward to a very welcome rest day. A steep climb out of Ravenshoe to the top of the hill, 1142 meters with the wind turbines spinning. Then up and down through rain forest, out onto open grass land into Atherton a popular mountain bike town then a very welcome downhill to Mareeba.
