Good photo Bird and pretty close what I witnessed, but that must be the Victorian cousins with all those Green cans.

Off memory the Cape York tribe had piles of Brisbane Bitter (Because it was cheap) and XXXX, plus double the amount of cans compared to your photo.

 Traditional owners of the Tip of Cape York were given a full working motel complex , the vandals and the jungle has wrecked this . The infastructer that they are wanting was allready in place but they never did a thing with what was a money making concern  .

In theses areas there are not just one people who own all the land, theirs a few different mobs and a couple of different council groups up until now the main big mob has got the loins share of government money and barge fares, and the TOs that own that tip bit have missed out on a lot of funding and have had bugger all say, but that is changing and shutting that area is is part of the process of change, Hope they get it sorted and get to manage there own lands, and it opens again, Craig

And this is the reason that an indigenous voice in the media, has nothing to do with First Nation peoples. Every MOB is in it for themselves, as they always have been. They are tribal, not a democratic society with a single voice for anything!

Sounds like the decision to close access to the tip will be reversed. But it is going to be at a cost. Access will be allowed after you pay for a pass to let you walk there.

Cape York Weekly
 ·
UPDATE: Tourists will pay an extra $10 on the Jardine River ferry to cover costs for toilets and other amenities. When the road is open, tourists will be able to access the Tip and have their photo taken.
------
BREAKING: The Tip of Cape York will remain OPEN in 2021 after a deal was struck between the NPA Regional Council and the Gudang/Yadhaykenu Aboriginal Corporation.
We told you all along not to believe the fake news being pedalled by the Cairns Post, who ran a deliberate scare campaign.
Now it's up to the tourists to do the right thing when they visit Cape York to make sure they leave the place better than when they arrived.

It's already the most expensive bit of water to cross in the world
The locals took to the original river crossing (South Bank) with a digger a while back so you have to use the ferry

UPDATE tourists will be able to access the Tip and have their photo taken.

We last visited the Cape 3 years ago and did the normal photo opportunity with the sign, but not long after our photo 5 or 6 aboriginal kids aged between 12 and 15 came along and used the sign and a big area around it to rest there fishing rods/gear and were about to walk off and explore.  Just then another group of tourists arrived and politely asked if they could move there gear for a photo. The kids just started yelling at the tourists and telling them to F off and threatened them if they moved there fishing gear. 

So unfortunately that group didn't get the photo they traveled weeks to get  >:(

I’d have grown their gear in the tide
And then them if they wanted to push it
Most of the rubbish I’ve seen up there is from locals
Although the toilet paper everywhere can’t be blamed on them
For gods sake people burn the paper (wild dogs dig it up and it goes everywhere)

Then feel free to stand in front of them

I was in Mapoon, Napranum and Weipa this week.  None of these areas are locked or are going to be locked.  Although they heard the B/S stories in the Paper and on social media that have no idea who started the rumours. Mapoon already has received a number of bookings for Easter and there are people at Pennefarther right now.

I was in NPA 3 weeks ago.  They were never going to lock tourists out either. The toilets are getting built as there have been complaints that there are no facilities there.

I am not worried about the added cost as I have been at the top a few times , but I do blieve is that thre should be a fee , say $100 dollars per vehicle , to use the Tele Track . This could help with the maintaince and upgrades of the track , toilets at several of the camping areas and so forth . The amount of Shit that is laying around at these camp spots is beyond belief .

Go on run me down for my comment , call me a wanka if you want , but if you have been down this track you will uderstand where I am coming from .

Good call Duggie, only caveat would be that it has to be actualy spent on doing that and proper accountable books be kept on income and expediture, plus taxed as in line with any other business .

100% agree Duggie.  Thankfully you and I got to see it I it’s prime.  These days the track is littered with broken discarded camping chairs, broken gazebos, rubbish and toilet paper.

I dont think anyone would have an issue with the  $100 per convoy *IF* it was put back into the maintenance, dunnys etc, but we all know it wouldn't be.
