Who says no trailers?
Ive never heard of this or seen a sign that says so, we travelled the CREB track back in July last year with two vehicles towing camper trailers starting at Daintree. We made it no worries with a little rain falling mid way through which made it interesting. In fact we got held up a couple of times with other vehicles(no trailers) getting stuck and requiring winching out which we simply drove straight through.

Looking at the Cairns regional website it states not suitable for trailers

For what its worth they (Cairns Regional Council) will tell you it's closed when it's open as well. The only dissapointment from our last trip.

We thought we'd do the right thing and ring, subsequently ran into some others at lions den who'd done the creb that day, no closed sign :mad:

I saw a few campertrailors on the creb last year when I did it.aparently two days after I did the creb it was closed because of rain and a few cars got stuck and a few people had to be air lifted out.

it doesn't say that any where I have ever seen that you can't tow it just says not suitable, you are allowed to, and several do tow. Did last year the day after it was open after a breif shower. We did it come down rather than from the Daintree. I was glad to have a front locker simple so we could cruise up the steeper hills, and plenty of right foot towing. As I said there were quite a few muddy spots where the camper was trying to get past us. It took us 8.5 hours to do the 80K including lunch at roaring Meg falls

Its a no brainer for trailers, but there are sections where if some one is coming the other way you will have problems passing, so I would say open for experienced Trailer users with caution.....IMHO

Hi all, We are situated in NQ and some mates of ours towed their caravans through the Creb Track no worries. There was 3 different vans and the weather is perfect at the moment hasn't been any rain. This was about three weeks ago. They were all experienced drivers and towers, this was towards the end of thier 3 month road trip.They rated it a good track but to be taken with extreme care. Cheers Pie

Hi All
Is it possible to go north up the Creb and South down the Bloomfeild from Mossman in a day?

Cheers Dan

Anybody?
The plan is to leave the campers set up at Mossman do a day trip up and back then pick them up an continue up the Bloomfeild onto the tip?

It lools to be about 200ks it will be a huge day but i think its the only way we will get to drive the Creb. Any ideas??

Cheers Dan

Hi muddy dan,
You should be able to do the round trip in a day, so long as there hasn't been a lot of rain. It all depends on the timing of your trip.

No worries Dan, but why don't you take the campers up to the Lions Den, stay the night, then head back along the Creb or visa versa if the weather is good. I take a camper everywhere, just a bit slower sometimes.

Yep that is an option it will depend on what time we get to Mossman after the 2000 od ks from here.

The campers are following us right to the tip via the old tele so towings not a prob i just dont want to be the one stuck on a big clay hill winching for an hour when there is no need. If its been dry for long enough we will tow up the creb.
