Drive past the coffee, fruit and sugar farms of Mareeba on the Atherton Tablelands for the drier country of Cape York Peninsula. The Mulligan Highway is an easy drive on a fully sealed road to historic Cooktown.

Stop at Mount Molloy to see the grave of explorer James Venture Mulligan who discovered gold on the Palmer River in 1873, a find that opened up that region and turned Cooktown into a booming gold rush town.

There is fuel and food at Mount Carbine or cool off in the McLeod River, another 13 kilometes north. Next is the Palmer River Roadhouse which has a museum with fascinating relics from the Palmer River goldfields. Lakeland is the last stop for fuel before you reach Cooktown.

The highway crosses the Annan River which has a campsite and toilets as well as a walk to the spectacular gorge. The mysterious Black Mountain looms in the distance and it is not until you get you close that you realise it is a pile of enormous granite boulders precariously stacked on each other. It is another 25 kilometres to Cooktown where you can enjoy museums, monuments and a streetscape rich with pioneering history.

Spectacular Roaring Meg Falls is just one of the highlights on the adventurous CREB Track. Lush tropical rainforest, clear flowing streams and spectacular views from ridges, make this an exciting journey.

The CREB track is a very steep and rough so driving times vary and it closes during the wet season. Originally the service access track for the old powerline to Cooktown for the Cairns Regional Electricity Board (CREB), the track takes you through the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area from the Daintree River through China Camp to Wujal Wujal.

Your adventure begins when you cross the Daintree River in your four-wheel drive not far from Daintree township. There's some very steep and slippery tracks along the way to challenge your four-wheel driving skills. The track crosses through the Burungu Aboriginal community and at the northern end is Roaring Meg Falls. There is an Indigenous-run campground just north of Wujal Wujal community, before you reach Bloomfield.

Discover the relics of the gold rush of the 1870s as you drive through the Palmer River goldfields to the heritage-listed ghost town of Maytown. The unsealed four-wheel drive track is accessed from the Mulligan Highway, on the Whites Creek Road turnoff, 67 kilometes north of Mount Carbine. Travel is slow and the road cannot be accessed during the wetter months. Stay to the marked track as there are many side tracks which lead to mining leases.

The wide streets of the former township of Maytown can be seen with their deep stone gutters and the remains of the baker's oven is still there. Nearby are tracks to former mines where the enormous machinery has been left behind, including the King of the Ranges Mine, Mabel Louise workings and the Queen of the North Mine. Bush camping is available on the southern side of the North Palmer River and can be booked through National Parks. You will need to bring everything you need with you to this remote area.

With its incredible river systems and wetlands, Rinyirru National Park, formerly Lakefield, is the most popular park on Cape York Peninsula for fishing and wildlife spotting. Access is limited to the drier months and exploring this large national park will require extra fuel to be taken.

The ruins of the Old Laura Homestead can be seen as you enter the park from Laura and then it is a short drive past the camping spot of Twelve Mile Waterhole to the New Laura Ranger Station. It is worth stopping at Catfish Waterhole, about halfway between New Laura and Lakefield Ranger Station, to see the variety of wildlife including crocodiles, waterbirds and turtles in the permanent waterhole.

Near Lakefield Ranger Station is Kalpowar Crossing on the Normanby River which has the most developed camp sites with toilets and fireplaces and is close to deep stretches of the river. About eight kilometres north of the Lakefield ranger base are the spectacular Red and White Lilly Lagoons.
