We recommend you base yourself in Cairns or Palm Cove for Days 1 and 2 and then relocate to Port Douglas for Days 3 and 4.

This will enable easy transfer to the start and finish of each stage and on the last day you can then roll back to your accommodation after the celebrations!!

Camping / Motor Home

For riders and their travel parties wishing to either camp or motor home throughout the event there are many campsites available within close proximity to each days start / finish venue.

Suggested options include;

  • Day 1 – Cairns (Cairns South / Cairns Holiday Park).
  • Day 2 – Davies Creek (Lower Davies Creek, Upper Davies Creek) / Mareeba (Ringers Rest RV Park)
  • Day 3 – Mareeba (Ringers Rest RV Park) / Mt Molloy (Rifle Creek, Wetherby Station)
  • Day 4 – Mt Molloy (Rifle Creek, Weatherby Station) / Port Douglas

Tropical North Queensland offers a huge range of hotel and apartment accommodation options for visitors.

If this fits your preference our recommendation is to base yourself in Cairns or Palm Cove for Days 1 and 2 (travel time to Smithfield is approximately 10 minutes and about 45 minutes to Davies Creek).

After Day 2 relocating to Port Douglas for Days 3 and 4 will enable another easy transfer to the start for both days and an easy roll back to your accommodation at the end of the Day 4 celebrations!
