There was supposed to be a big crew of '60's to the cape' somewhere around that time. Might be worth checking the dates to make sure places aren't choccas!

Hi mate,
Yeah did the trip in 04 with a mate spent 10 week in
The bush up there. Pretty much stayed away from the
Tourist route plan on doing a bit of the same again.
Last trip had no fridge battery lights genny ect so doing it a bit
More comfy this round.

Jaw dropped when I did it in 83 late Aug, Feral pigs, Barra on the Wenlock, 11ft python, that many tiapan we lost count.
Travelled north with 2 teachers from Bamaga, Wilderness lodge closed at the TIP , camp ground only had Bamboo toilet block
You could drive the Jardine back then and we did after walking across first {der}. Engel played up ,so hot beer it was, {YUK}
Drove through random scrub fires. Gunshot was just an Army training track back then. oh memories, VB cans $84 @ 24 in 1983.
