Cairns / Gordonvale (24km) / Ross & Locke (8km)

01_ross-and-locke_640
Turn right for the Gillies Highway at the second Gordonvale lights. After 7 km you will see the Goldsborough/Peets Bridge turn off on the left. Drive another kilometer and branch left. Follow the track down to the parking area on both sides of the bridge. If you have a 4WD you can follow the track to the left just before the bridge. The track runs over a shingly area before meeting the Mulgrave River again. If you continue on you will come back onto the Gillies Highway again after about 2 km. The area around the bridge is a fun swimming area for kids, especially if you have a tube or a lilo for shooting under the bridge as the current speeds up through the narrow opening.

If you have a 4WD you can follow the track to the left just before the bridge - it follows the river downstream and meets the highway after 2-3km. There is a rope swing along this section.
