The Bloomfield Track is part of the Cape Tribulation Road Link which is the coastal road that connects Cairns, Mossman and Cooktown. The Road Link passes through the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area at Daintree National Park and at Cedar Bay National Park north of Bloomfield.
The Wet Tropics Management Authority congratulated the Cairns Regional Council for their extensive engagement with the community to develop the Plan.
"As well as providing social and cultural connectivity. It was very helpful in informing us in the assessment of the Woobadda Creek permit application. It also highlighted a unique opportunity to present the World Heritage Area’s important natural and scenic values,” Wet Tropics Management Authority executive director, Mr Andrew Maclean said.
“It is vital that we manage the Cape Tribulation Road Link to ensure that the remote, wild and undisturbed natural attributes remain an integral part of the driving experience - whilst protecting the integrity of the unique environmental and cultural heritage values of the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area,” Mr Maclean said.
“The Authority looks forward to working with the local councils and communities to create a safer and more enjoyable experience for all road users including improving signage and interpretation along the Bloomfield and Daintree Roads,” Mr Maclean added.
