Gunshot, on the Old Telegraph Track, Far North Queensland


Are you sure this is the right way?

Last year my husband and I fulfilled a dream to drive to Cape York via the Old Telegraph track, Gunshot being the challenge that any crazy 4wd person wants to conquer.

After careful deliberation and nail biting Ron decided to give it his best shot, and we were elated to have made it when many didnt and they weren’t pulling a trailer like we were. WE spent 2 months in far north QLD and loved every minute of its vast beauty and remoteness.

From the Editor: Thanks for sharing Sue! The Gunshot is one of those ‘experiences’ that are hard to resist even though many don’t make it without incident. Take a look at this thing…. would you take your car over??
