Get Yourself Adventure Driven - Foxy's OL Cairns to The Cape.
Early planning stages, but definitely happening from 3rd - 18th October, where I'll be hosting a Trip to The Tip of Cape York from Cairns.
Permit details etc, will be provided soon.
You will need to be self sufficient and in a well prepared 4WD.
Ideally suited to couples with at least some 4WD experience but No, you won't need the latest and greatest 80K rig... My own Challenger certainly aint that! But your vehicle must be reliable and well kitted out.
There is a nominal fee of $150 per person to cover cost of shirts, caps, stickers, etc, however this fee is more an indication of a comittment to attend rather than a fee to do so.
No, I won't be making your coffees, cooking your dinner, or wiping your butt... hence the need to be fully self sufficient;)
Whilst I am the Manager of Opposite Lock, Cairns, and this trip is being promoted as an OL Cairns Event, Opposite Lock, nor myself personally, accept no responsibility for any damages, injuries, or any other claim arising before, during, or after the trip.
For further details, or to express your interest, please contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org or 0409 228 778.
Sorry - No Dogs, Kids, or Camper Trailers.
