Got info that the Palm Creek exit is in very poor condition. If it's still raining or been raining, it may be a which fest. Exit to the right is steep and will have to winch, exit on the left is all boggy so again, may have to winch if wet.... have fun ;):D

Great video Towie, geez the Palm Creel has deteriorated since I was there in 2009 but Gunshot bypass looks a lot better

Hi all leaving Cooktown today so far so good, having a great time talking to locals and partying, 20 days on the road and not a dry night yet, I think it's starting to take its toll on the wallet ha ha ha! That's all for now folks. Oh Bushnut still talking at this stage.

They crashed at my place Saturday night so should be well up towards Chilli Beach now at a guess since Lakefield is still shut.
Here is a video of the trip i took up we left Cairns May 16th with 6 trucks.

towie,
sounds like your up that way a lot. in your video there is an exit to the main palm creek crossing just to the right of the normal exit.
how long has thet been there?
dont remember it from early july last year but the entry looks the same just a lot more mud!
