A popular camping and tourist destination in the Gulf of Carpentaria remains closed as the anticipated reopening of Wugudaji Adel's Grove was postponed.
Wugudaji Adel's Grove took to its Facebook page on June 26 to update campers of the current situation at the camping park.
The post stated the "park was closed until July 14 due to the recent weather event" and flooding of the Georgina River, Burketown, Doomadgee and surrounding areas.
This update is two weeks later than originally announced, July 1.
The owners stated that the camping ground, cafe and store would be reopening on 14th July 2023, but room accommodation and restaurant would not.
"Unfortunately due to the recent weather event, and the extensive damage we have experienced we are unable to open our Room Accommodation or Restaurant this year.
"Repairs are not estimated to be completed until 2024."
Followed by a closure from COVID-19 restrictions in 2020.
