Lockhart River / Bird Watching is approximately 800kms north of Cairns. It is isolated and cannot be reached easily during wet season when the roads are often closed when plane or boat is the only way in.  During the dry season, May - Nov, Lockhart River and Portland Roads can be accessed from the Penisula Development Road.  You need to check the status of these roads before departure.  Its advisable to use a well maintained 4WD and have some off road experience, as much of the road is dirt from Laura onwards and often has some corregation and larger ruts.
