the creb track
The CREB Track is one of Australia’s most famous powerline tracks. It was forged by the Cairns Regional Electricity Board (CREB) to get power from cairns too Cooktown. Cutting through the World heritage listed Daintree rainforest, and finishing at the Aboriginal community of Wujul Wujul, it is a breathtaking and challenging drive suited to high clearance 4WD vehicles only.
Traveling approximately 10km from the Daintree Village township, when heading north, you will reach the start of the CREB and your first obstacle in the mighty Daintree river.
The Daintree crossing can be deep at times but has a rocky bottom so traction is no problem. (Video below)
From here you traverse your way through the rain forrest navigating steep climbs and ascents that have to be seen to be believed.
Approximately halfway along the track you will come across Bobs Hill. Bobs Hill is arguably the hardest part of the track. It is extremely steep, rutted and when wet virtually underivable. But don’t let this deter you as there is a very mild detour around it for the less adventurous of us.
Shortly after you will climb “Big Red” and Reach the look out at the summit of the CREB, a must stop for spectacular views over the Daintree Rainforest.
From the lookout you make your way down a steep ascent and towards the end of the CREB crossing crystal clear streams along the way.
You can choose to end your day and camping at the crystal clear waters of Roaring meg falls or push on to and camp at the Lions Den Hotel for a cold beer and a hot shower.
Make sure you grab a True North shirt or singlet to wear along the track!
