We had just set up camp in The Ravenshoe Railway Camping Ground at $8 per night with hot showers, when a Charity "Cairns to Karumba" Bike Ride entered town for the lunch break. There were about 150 Competitors all told plus support crews.
Our camp site at Ravenshoe with the refurbished steam train in the background. The train, that is maintained and operated by local volunteers, has not been running for some time due to track issues. The track has now been refurbished and once it has been certified safe the train will resume running. July 7th was the official re-opening target date.
