There's a whole lot to see and do in Tropical North Queensland, and the Crocodile Trophy might just be the way to explore!
While Day 5 does have a climb called Mt Misery, it's actually a stunning stage. With a route that takes in dirt roads, old stage coach routess, farm roads and some connecting trails, it's a really varied stage that takes you via the isolated gold mining town of Irvinebank, before you finally finish at the Skybury Coffee plantation, ordering some carrot cake and a cappucino and sitting on a deck overlooking the farmlands... the day couldn't have more contrasts if it tried!
The stage is long, but it is also one of the flattest stages of the event, and given you finish at a cafe/restaurant you can make sure your reserves are well-stocked. Just leave some room for dinner. The best news? You're here for two nights. Don't forget to stock up on some freshly roasted beans or grind for your aeropress.
