October 2014


Can you tell we have been busy? It has been a great tourist season with travellers arriving in April and still coming through in mid-October!


It has been a damp, cool year with light winds and good fishing.


We will be posting heaps on the website and Facebook in the months to come as we have more time.


We have lots of information on Cape York in general that we will be making available, maybe even digging into our photo archives for some history!


There's lots happening across Cape York so keep in touch.

$210 million funding grant for Cape York


The Federal Government has announced $210 million for Cape York. The Cairns Post ran the story stating that confidence was high for the Peninsula Development Road to be sealed. The story went on:


"This follows Regional Development Australia Far North and Torres Strait chief executive Sonja Johnson and Cook Shire Mayor Peter Cook telling The Cairns Post they would push for all the money to be devoted to the road upgrade.

"On Monday, Infrastructure and Regional Development Minister Warren Truss announced the package to upgrade the road between Mapoon and Weipa, the connection between Aurukun and the road and to build the Jardine River Bridge.

"Upgrades to Seisia Wharf and improvements to the raw water pipeline from Bamaga to Seisia are also included.

"Leichhardt MP, Warren Entsch said Mr Truss told him he was prepared to be flexible with the package with more to be devoted to the road, although the relevant indigenous mayors still wanted the Mapoon and Aurukun road works to go ahead.

"The Northern Peninsula Area Regional Council was against a bridge over the Jardine River, preferring to continue to operate its ferry service, he said."
