A Journey to the tip of Australia and back

By Dave Roberts - Published September 21, 2022

Recently, I went on a well planned trip from Sydney to the Northernmost tip of Australia, Cape York.

Travelling with my 9-year-old daughter and 8 friends, we drove on the Iconic Telegraph Track, which was built in 1885 with 2 wires sending Morse Code to connect Australia to the rest of the world.

Our group traversed over 20 Deep River Crossings and bridges made of logs and visited stunning places like Fruit Bat Falls and the Jardine River, which is full of crocodiles.

We spent 4 weeks on the road travelling up Australia’s East Coast to Cairns in the far north of Queensland, and then up to Cape York before heading back to Cairns.

We took an inland route back home through Longreach, the birthplace of Qantas, and Charleville, the home of the Australian Flying Doctors Service.

We then went down Lightning Ridge, which is famous for Australian Opals. We made an effort to travel through remote roads whenever possible and witnessed some amazing sunrises.
