Cape crusaders save tired drivers

The Peninsular Development Road is a key route for travellers in far north Queensland. But rest stop opportunities are few and far between. That’s why Balkanu Cape York Development Corp have upgraded a rest stop that goes above and beyond your regular roadside stop.

The ‘Wunthulpu rest stop’, provides a safe place where the community can stop and revive. Travellers can chill out with a tea or coffee and check out the local history displays. Of course there’s picnic tables and restrooms, but there’s also a range of info on the Cape York region to help visitors plan their journey and even road safety advice to help travellers get there safely.

StreetSmarts is proud to support this great road safety initiative. If you have a road safety idea of your own why not apply for funding to put it into action? Apply for a StreetSmarts community road safety grant.
