    Hi FNQGU.

    Thanks for the input especially the information on the Lakefield NP. I have had no luck finding and information on the Lakefield Road in my searches.

    The Southern entry to the park is not far from the Laura end of Battlecamp Rd. It is well signed, you can't miss it if you are coming across from Cooktown.
    Had a beaut GU with 6.5 Chev TD, but sold the soul and now driving a 79 series dual cab. Yes, a Tojo on the Patrol Forum! Also having fun trying to build the ultimate Expedition Grade storage box.

    That section of road was the best I have seen on my trip.

    The section from Laura to Musgrave was the worst.
