To the start

The 64km Kuranda to Port Douglas race starts on Black Mountain Road approximately 200m from the Kennedy Highway turn off. It takes about 30 minutes to drive from Cairns Esplanade/CBD to the start of the race. There is street parking at the start. This is not an easy location to return to, so book the bus if you are a visitor into town or don’t have somone picking you up in Port Douglas to drive you back to your car at the start.
The bus departs and returns to Cairns Colonial Club Resort.
No transport is provided for those in the 64km K2PD Relay.
Those in the 64km K2PD who paid for transport as part of their registration will be picked up at 5.00am at the entrance to the Cairns Colonial Club Resort on Cannon Street, Manunda. Let us know if you want to be picked up at Smithfield.

Return journey

Competitors who paid for transport will have two options to return to Cairns. At 1.15pm or at 3.30pm. Competitors who miss the bus at 3.30pm will be provided with a ride back to Cairns with a returning club volunteer, but you still need to pay for transport. These times are only a guide and may be adjusted on the day, depending on transport needs.
