TRAVELLING AROUND FNQ, YOU MEET A LOT MOSTS. MOST AMAZING, MOST REMOTE, BIGGEST, WETTEST. BRING YOUR CAMERA AND A GOOD SUPPLY OF ADJECTIVES.
One of the must-see mosts is Bramwell Station – Australia’s most northerly cattle station. And one of the loveliest places I’ve had the good fortune to see on my travels. It’s a working cattle station, with accommodation for travellers, meals, an airstrip, and the only bar for hundreds of kilometres.
Bramwell Station is about 30km north of Moreton Telegraph Station, and 200km south of the tip of Cape York. There’s fuel nearby at Brawmell Junction. The accommodation closes during the wet season, but during the dry, it’s a popular stop on the journey to the tip. Contemplate the sunset from the Bramwell station bar, and think about the decision you have to make next day – will I do the gentler Bypass Road to the tip, or give the rough-as-guts Telegraph Track a go. It’s a big decision – this is a great place to ask for advice and think it through. And there’s plenty to see on the country around Bramwell.
