Foxy's Opposite Lock Cairns - Cape York Adventure HARD

Cape York, QLD

See more trips

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 info.cairns@oppositelock.com.au or 0409 228 778.

Sorry - No Dogs, Kids, or Camper Trailers.

Cheers

Tony "Foxy" Fox

Wow Foxy what a great trip. I am interested and will start to make plans for it. I have a 14 yr old, is he ok to bring? He is a good winch bitch :) Otherwise from Melb to Cape and back is too long to leave him home.

Hi Dave,
Thanks for your interest:)
Can't see any issue with your 14yo son attending mate.
Have said no kids moreso because I don't want to be kept awake at night with screaming youngsters after a long day. (No offence to anyone who has a screaming youngster!)
Cheers

Will do. We have a 2 night stop over at cairns. to stock up, and do some touristy things. As well as have the drivers unwind after putting about 4000kms behind them over 5 days.

WITHDRAWN from Trip - Reason: Hi Tony, I have some delays with building approval for the rebuild of my house in Prague which means that I have to stay here until mid Oct at best which means that I will not be able to make the trip. Really sorry to have to cancel as I was really looking forward to the trip and I am sure that you will have a ball. Cheers Ivan
