    Again a good read Cuppa. The Pennefather is a great spot too. Fishing the West Coast can be pretty spectacular, even from the beaches and the water life amazing.
    Between Patrols ATM. Had a beaut GU with 6.5 Chev TD. Next is a GU ute with a 4.5 litre Cummins conversion and a camper on the back.

    Great read again Cuppa.
    Have to say Chilli Beach is one of the best places I have visited, we ended up changing our plans when we were there so we could extend our stay.

    Having been out of range for a while & now settled in at Moreton Telegraph Station for the wet, with internet, it eas time to start catching up with the blog posts.

    Here the latest published this evening.

    Old Telegraph Track - Its basically a video with notes in the blog to go with it.

    https://cuppa500.com/Blog/the-old-te...ack-cape-york/

    If you just want to watch the video & not bother with what I've read I wont mind, but the writing should add a bit to the video if you can be bothered.

    Video is 35 minutes

    Hi Cuppa
    Spent a few days on Pennefather a few years ago and was stalked by a croc while fishing from the outer bank on that lagoon near the mouth. Thought it was time to leave.

    Friends on mine John and Diane used to look after the Moreton Telegraph Station for the wet also a few years ago.

    Keep dry over next few months

    Here is the link to our latest blog post in which we explore the area known as the NPA at the very top of Cape York. Almost 80 photos included along with my usual writing. I hope you enjoy the ride.

    Do you want to know what it's like to stay up on the Cape as a caretaker for the wet season?
    If so this is the post for you.

    As always, an enjoyable read, thanks, Cuppa.
    My advice is: not to follow my advice.

    Long overdue - a new blog post. We see the wet season out at Moreton Telegraph Station with an impressive last hurrah of the monsoon season, get trapped by the rivers, eventually get out & travel to the Iron Range rainforest on the east coast of Cape York, crossing the deepest water I've ever driven through on the way.
