GRADING: This track requires low range and high ground clearance, as well as traction aids in some areas.
THE DRIVE: This trip can take 2-4 days, leaving Cooktown and heading north around the Endeavour River. The track takes you to attractions such as Elim Beach and the Coloured Sands, Cape Bedford and Cape Flattery.
In 1886, a Lutheran Church set up a misson on Elim Beach, and after being evacuated during WWII, it was reestablished in 1949. The Starcke River Goldfield enjoyed a brief rush from around 1890, but nothing remains of the small township from which 4000 ounces of gold were found all those years ago.
