A couple travelling around the northern tip of Queensland have raised the concerns of family members and police after failing to make contact for almost two weeks.

Jane Morwood, 48, and Paul Garrad, 54, from the Brisbane suburb of Logan, last contacted family on July 14 as they were making their way south to Julia Creek from Somerset on the tip of Cape York.

They are travelling in a customised Nissan Navara with Queensland registration plates 107MYD and are towing a Queensland registered caravan (061QOF).

Senior Sergeant Duane Amos from Normanton said police have texted the couple but were yet to receive a reply. They have also checked caravan parks and hospitals for any information.

He said it was possible the couple were out of mobile phone range or had had car troubles, but police were taking it seriously due to the family's concern.

"The family has told us they haven't kept in line with their plans ... and said 'they are normally in touch with us' and this is out of character," Mr Amos said.

"We have had unseasonal rain and that can shut some of the roads."
