  • Place of Interest
Cattle production, tourism, agriculture and mining are the main industries here in the Top End of Queensland.

As with all remote areas in Australia, precautions should be taken with extra fuel and drinking water. Roads become less serviceable away from the main population centres and sometimes impassable in the wet season. It is also wise to carry a first aid kit and insect repellant, as the mosquitos up here can carry some nasty passengers and medical help may not always be immediately available.

Some parts of the country require 4WD when travelling off the beaten track. Local knowledge should always be sought if in doubt.
