Camping/Accommodation

LUGGAGE

Luggage may be dropped at the Cairns and Far North Environment Centre (CAFNEC), 27-29 Greenslopes Street, North Cairns from 9am-4pm the day before the tour starts. On completion of the tour, your luggage will be available at the CAFNEC office after the train trip down from Mareeba.

A luggage pick up service will also operate on departure day if you are staying in the area between Cairns CBD and North Cairns. If you are staying outside this area, you will need to make your own arrangements to transport your luggage to the CAFNEC office for the start of the tour. Details will be provided closer to tour commencement.

Please note that luggage will be going in a covered-in large trailer.  This will keep out water if it rains, but it is unlikely to keep out fine dust.  Therefore, it is advisable to wrap essential/sensitive items in a plastic bag.
