After dark I suggest you stay away from the banks of the Mulgrave river at the Green Patch,some of the locals use this area as a drinking place and often fights break out,it is not safe to venture here during this time.Camp fire ashes are seen all along the banks.
Best to keep a sharp eye out during the daylight hours too.It is quite isolated and would not recommend anyone to go alone.
The river often floods during the wet season so locals say not to go there then.
You can read up on this place on my Cairns page (off the beaten track.)
