CREB Track

IMG_0049-2Steep Climb!

Adventure seekers can take an alternative route north via the CREB Track, an old maintenance track previously used by the Cairns Regional Electricity Board (CREB), which runs parallel to the Bloomfield Track (see map). Drivers with moderate 4WD experience should be fine in dry conditions; however the track is very steep and becomes extremely difficult when wet. Make sure you have advanced 4WD experience, all the necessary recovery gear, and a winch if attempting in the wet.

The start of the track is a short distance past the village, along Upper Daintree Road. Take a right hand turn across the small bridge. You will see a sign for the CREB Track at the fork of the road go right. The journey from the south starts with a crossing over the Daintree River, which can be a problem in the wetter months. The Track is thin, with many hill climbs and creek crossings, taking in a spectacular part of the World Heritage region. Roughly half way there is an especially steep hill with a lookout at the top; the road down on the north side was blocked in 2014 and there is an alternate route to the right of the previous track. There is also an indigenous run campground on the north side, and you can access Roaring Meg Falls. Permits to camp at the falls are required from Jabalbina Yalanji Aboriginal Corporation on 07 4098 5500. Check with Douglas Regional Council for track closures on 07 4099 9444. The CREB Track reconnects with the Bloomfield Track
north of Wujal Wujal.
