      The Bloomfield Track would be much more pleasant if the Greenies allowed a Grader in to take out the deep culverts, the Track needs attention. We were told by the Driver that a lot of the guest Houses were closing due to lack of patronage this is understandable the Track is not fit for any vehicles other than heavy 4 wheel drive. Also we were told that vehicles are not allowed to carry alcohol.
      Cook Town was a very interesting place, Capt Cook History, the fantastic old Convent that is now a great Museum. The Accomodation was good, but they did not include Breakfast in the Tariff. The return Trip to Pt Douglas on the made roAd was very interesting and much smoother- driving through Cattle Stations, a vey good commentary by Driver big Al. Those who did not stay the night in Cook Town would have only had about 1 hour to see the Town, which would be impossible. On the way to Cook Town we had a nice morning Tea, Scones, Jam amd Cream and a pot of Tea, very nice

      We were picked up right on time at our hotel and we were the only pick up in Cairns so we set off. Our driver and guide Mark was very good and attentive and we enjoyed our journey and the morning tea at the very pleasant resort. We picked up 4 other passengers and proceeded on to Cooktown. Up to this point everything was fine. Mark did a short tour of the town and we went up to the lookout and then we were dropped at our respective accommodations. We had selected the dearer option as we saw that it had a restuarant but upon checking in we were informed that the restuarant was closed for the holiday period. We then had to find somewhere else to go to dinner that night. Although there were other venues (RSL, Bowling Club, and another restuarant) we were disappointed. Mark told us that there would be someone to pick us up at the Motel about 4.00pm the next day. We had to check out from our motel by 10.00am and although they cloaked our luggage we feel that it would be better if we could have had access to our room for longer as it was very hot and there was nowhere to go to get out of the heat. When 4.00pm arrived we were met by Darryl who informed us that the large vehicle had broken down and we were all to go back to Cairns in a sedan. As there were 6 of us and there was another passenger already we were a little crowded. My husband and I sat in the back seat (I sat on the centre area which was not the most comfortable) but we felt sorry for the other three younger passengers who were squashed in the back seat. We did enjoy seeing Cooktown but feel that there was a long time to fill in on the second day when there was nowhere to go to rest or cool down.
