Quaid Road: The road to nowhere

Located in the Shire of Douglas, in Far North Queensland, Australia, Quaid Road is a disused development road which leads from Wangetti on the coast up into the rain forest.

Quaid Road

The road, known as Southedge-Wangetti Road, opened in the late 1980s. It’s a 32-kilometre-long (20 mi) stretch of road across the top of the mountains between Wangetti Beach and the Peninsular Dev Road north of Mareeba. This unused bitumen highway is currently closed to public access and has a number of locked gates along its route.
