A boost for adventurous families, with a popular 4WD destination reopening in time the June/July school holidays.

The Cape Tribulation Bloomfield Road has been closed since mid-December due to extensive damage caused by Tropical Cyclone Jasper.

A total of 48 sections of the road were damaged.

Crews have been on site since early January 2024 to restore to its previous condition as a 4WD track and Council can confirm it will be open to the public by June 22.

Cape Tribulation Bloomfield Road, which links Cape Tribulation to Wujal Wujal is considered one of Australia’s most scenic and challenging drives.

An alternative to the inland road via the sealed Mulligan Highway, this 4WD route travels through the heart of the Wet Tropics and features world-heritage listed rainforest, waterfalls, creek crossings, rainforest-clad ranges and stunning views.

It’s also a vital access route for Degarra residents wanting to travel to Mossman and Cairns.

Restrictions on Cape Tribulation Road have also been relaxed with the length restriction for articulated vehicles increased from 12.5m to 15.1m.

This will mean more camping trailers and caravans will be able to travel across Alexandra range to Cape Tribulation Village, ahead of the school holidays.
