Continuing down the Cape we had hoped that one of the tracks would be open to the west so we could take a shortcut to Karumba on the Gulf of Carpentaria. We stopped at Musgrave Station for lunch and advice on the roads and the guy there pretty much advised against it unless we could carry about 800km worth of fuel - something we could not do. This guy then suggest a route we take whereby we would take in the Atherton Tablelands and Undara Lava Tubes. He also said we could make it to Mt Molloy that day and there was a free campground there.
We took his advice and kept on the main road arriving at Mt Molloy in the early evening.
