Kennedy Hwy


The Kennedy Highway (Highway 1) is a highway in northern Queensland, Australia. It runs for approximately 243 km from Smithfield, on the northern outskirts of Cairns, to the Gulf Developmental Road in the vicinity of Forty Mile Scrub and Undara Volcanic national parks, about 40 kilometres south of Mount Garnet. South of this junction, the road continues as the Kennedy Developmental Road (State Highway 62) via Hughenden eventually to Boulia about 936 kilometres away; National Route 1 and the Gulf Developmental Road head west to Normanton via Georgetown.

We travelled along the Kennedy Highway in Queensland from the Gulf Development Road to Mareeba. This road is generally very good and we had no trouble towing our caravan. The road will climb quite a bit as you head up to the Atherton Tablelands and this will, of course, increase petrol consumption. There are plenty of things to see along the way so make sure you allow some time to call in to look at the Millstream Falls, Ravenshoe, Atherton, Mareeba, coffee plantations etc.
