This campsite is located in Telegraph Track

The Telegraph Track is an icon of wild Cape York. The track, which follows a nearly straight line from Bramwell Junction to Punsand Bay, used to be a service route for maintaining the telegraph line that connected Cape York to the rest of the world. The telegraph itself has been retired, but its service route lives on as this notorious 4WD challenge. The tradition is to take the Telegraph Track on the way north and return via the easier bypass roads. Owing to the difficulty of several creek crossings, the Telegraph Track should only be attempted during the dry season (May–Nov) by seasoned 4WD operators with vehicle recovery equipment and spare parts. Off-road caravans and camper trailers can be towed as far north as Eliot Falls, but are not recommended beyond this point.
