Hema - Old Telegraph Track South
FOR MORE INFORMATION ON THIS TRACK, PLEASE REFER TO OUR CAPE YORK ATLAS & GUIDE: http://bit.ly/capeguide
GRADING: This track requires low range, high ground clearance, traction aids and recovery gear, and contains deep creek crossings and slippery, steep river banks.
THE DRIVE: The southern section of the Old Telegraph Track can take one to two days, depending on your personal preference and the OTT's seasonal track conditions. The first major obstacle is Palm Creek, followed by Ducie Creek, Dulhunty River, Bertie Creek, Gunshot, Cockatoo Creek and Sailor Creek - leaving little wonder as to why it's one of Australia's most famed tracks. Palm Creek and Gunshot are the most challenging crossings, while the Dulhunty offers plenty of swimming opportunities before ending the track at Fruit Bat Falls.
