Mayor Val Schier opened the Cooper Creek Causeway
Cape Tribulation Road is now officially all-weather proof! Mayor Val Schier opened the Cooper Creek causeway with the help of a very friendly cassowary, ‘Max the Cass’.
The cassowary pushed in to thwart the ribbon cutting ceremony Saturday evening to open the new Cooper Creek Bridge. Kids on decorated bikes, pedestrians and a couple of smart cars were the first over. Two real cassowaries appeared at either end of the bridge whilst people were waiting for the opening.
This now means that there are no barriers for visitors to Cape Trib. You can drive a normal car in the wet season and know that you will not be flooded.
