Gliders and other Cloud lovers
If there has been a brisk sea breeze blowing through Burketown all day and the fridges in the Burketown Pub have frosted over, then there is a very good chance that the next day, you will see a Morning Glory Cloud roll its away towards town.
It is bitumen from Burketown all the way to Cloncurry and is about 500km, though with long, straight stretches it feels a lot longer. Cloncurry itself has some great driving trails and you will need to drop into the Cloncurry Unearthed Visitor Centre to get a map, plus it’s a nice spot to sit down and relax for a bit.
