Development of VISITOR INFASTRUCTURE:
For several decades prior to the re-acquisition of our homelands the land was held as a land bank by a developer (the notorious Cairns based developer George Quade). The land was unmanaged, remained vacant and was used by locals and tourists in a hazardous and damaging way.
Poorly designed bush campsites, no litter collection, no toilets, no walking tracks led to disrespectful use of the region and left a legacy of litter, erosion and damage through firewood collection.
Our current priorities include the development of walking tracks and properly managed campsites to help break this legacy and provide a safer, more hygienic and pleasant experience for visitors. We are currently developing a series of walking tracks along the coast and through forest areas as first stage pioneers of the proposed Cape York Dreaming Track.
This project will eventually see a series of world class walking tracks developed throughout Cape York. Our track will provide a range of walks from one hour loops through to day and overnight experiences.
A designated camp ground consisting of 20 sites at Archer Point is envisaged, with camping fees helping to pay for land and sea management, sanitation, rubbish removal, cooking and other associated activities. Future opportunities for budding Yuku Baja Muliku entrepreneurs could include the creation of cabins, guided walks, fishing trips, cultural talks, or even a wilderness lodge.
