There are two options for getting to the festival from the South:
The Inland Road
This road is 100kms longer than the coastal road, however is a similar in travel time. Early in 2006 sealing the last section of this road was completed, thereby providing easy access for all vehicles. From Cairns take the road to Mareeba via the Kuranda Range. From Mareeba head to Mt Molloy and take the Mulligan Highway through Mt Carbine and the Palmer River Roadhouse to Lakeland. At Lakeland continue along the Cooktown Developmental Road/Mulligan Highway, past Little Annan Gorge, as far as the right turn into the coast road, Shiptons Flat Road, just before Black Mountain National Park .
The Coastal Road
The coast road is considered the most scenic of the two routes, but 4WD is highly recommended. Leaving Cairns you travel north to the Daintree River, cross the river via the vehicle ferry (there is a fee, $12 one way), then continue through the Daintree Wet Tropics to Cape Tribulation. After Cape Tribulation the road becomes 4WD and climbs over the range (very steep with rocky creeks to cross) 32kms until Bloomfield, cross the Bloomfield River at Wujul Wujul through Ayton and along the edge of Cedar Bay National Park before reaching Rossville. Turn right at the centre of Rossville into River Road for the 3kms to Home Rule Rainforest Lodge. The scenery is spectacular all the way!
Please be careful of the wildlife on the road.
