One of the highlights of my first trip to Cape York Peninsula was a visit to Bramwell Station. It’s a working cattle property with guest accommodation, an airstrip, meals, and the only bar within hundreds of kilometres. And it’s Australia’s most northerly cattle station.
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.
