Black Mountain Road. An easy drive to get the southern starting point, 20mins from Smithfield shops up the Kuranda road and 500m from the bridge to cross the Barron River up near Kuranda is the right turn to Black Mountain Road.
The first 1km is sealed road/residential area, you then cross a bridge in to the tree logging area. This hose for 20km, watch for blind corners and oncoming trucks.
The next part of track is grade easy. It is about 30km of rocky and dirt roads a lot of fun for a morning drive. It will bring you out at the turn of with 3km to Mossman of 76km back to Cairns. It’s a good track if you have made any mods to your four wheel drive and just want a shake down.
Woko National park through to Horse Swamp Campground in Barrington Tops National Park.
Awesome day out. Beaches where very washed out and covered in seaweed from storms throughout the previous week, but it also made for nice firm sand to drive on. Mouth of Hill river was not open so we continued all the way through to Jurien bay along the beach.
