The Bramwell Station Tourist Park white tyres in Cape York

Bramwell Station Tourist Park

The Perfect Cape York Stop-Over

Look for the big painted tyres and you will find the turnoff to Bramwell Tourist Park – 6km off the main road to the Tip – the Bamaga Road.

Your hosts at the Bramwell Tourist Park are Ken and Gail Godfrey:

Ken Godfrey
Ken was born in Laidley and grew up in Gatton.  At age 13 he went to Brisbane as an apprentice jockey at the Athol Strong stables. As a professional jockey Ken raced until his mid 20’s. He changed careers a couple of times and by his mid 30’s owned an Entertainment Management Company, where he earned the trust and admiration of entertainers from around Australia and abroad.  The entertainment company flourished and even now, professional musicians perform at the Bramwell Tourist Park every night.

In addition to his work, Ken conducted off-road 4WD, bike and car events raising funds to support children and their families for the Variety Club, Queensland and later for SIDS & Kids Queensland (now known as Red Nose Day).

Ken has been married to Gail for 40yrs, they have two wonderful daughters and six grandchildren.

Gail Godfrey
Gail grew up in rural suburbs on the outskirts of Brisbane and later enjoyed life on cattle properties her family owned around Surat. Gail studied piano from age 6, and at 16 began playing professionally in restaurants, at wedding receptions and corporate functions. During the day she worked as a secretary and studied social welfare at night.  At age 19 Gail ventured overseas for a couple of years.  On her return to Australia, she continued work and studied music, education, and health. While raising her daughters she enjoyed music with them and in the classroom. Her tertiary degrees include Theology, Human Services, Guided Imagery and Music Therapy, Master’s in Education and T.Mus.A (piano).

Today Gail continues her passion with family and nurtures the human spirit through music, teaching and retreats.

Ken, Gail and the family have been running Bramwell Tourist Park for the past 12 years and are excited to welcome you to a wonderful season.

“We are all visitors to this time, this place. We are just passing through. Our purpose here is to observe, to learn, to grow, to love….and then we return home.” Australian Aboriginal Proverb
