Driver Track Log

2013-10-7 Mazda BT-50Acidik Great day trip from Brisbane. Inland track is a bit of a mess and the sand was super soft (very little rain), whole day done in 4wd high.
2013-10-21 Jeep Wranglerwrangle on Great beach & inland tracks and POIs. Soft sand but it was a breeze for the Wrangler. Had to winch a few other 4wds who got bogged. Lower your tire pressure guys! Great lakes to have a much needed dip to cool off. Great fishing and camping on Ocean Beach Campsite.
2013-09-01 Nissan Navaraobones Nice spot for a BBQ. Access tracks are very chopped up, let those tires down people
2013-08-24 Mitsubishi Pajero3LIONS1976 My first 4WD adventure! Nice easy start. The only slight worry was the drop from the entrance road to the beach - quite steep for an amateur!! Beautiful views. I'll be back.
2013-08-17 Nissan Navaraobones Nice place to take the family for a day out
2013-04-25 Nissan NavaraTitus easy track no lift needed, just need general beach driving knowledge
2013-04-20 Toyota Hiluxsquintingsquirre First time driving on the beach for me, found it to be quite easy with a few tips from my mate that gave with. It was s really nice drive stopped and had s camp for a bit and let the kids out to play in the sand and water they loved it! We headed up the beach and came back down the inland track. All in all I really nice drive and only 25 mins up the road.
2013-02-02 Mitsubishi PajeroColinV A great enjoyable run along the surf beach on Bribie. The price for the permit is a bit steep ... see the old WW2 Gun bunkers. A nice lagoon to stop at ... was busy with 4WD enjoying the sun at the Lagoon ... certainly will return. Dont forget to let the tire pressure down ...

2011-11-19 Toyota 4Runner45tew beach is very soft at high tide. try to travel at mid to low tide as it is a much easier. also soft getting into the cuttings to access camping sites is also soft. inland track also very soft between poverty creek and lighthouse reach. i ran 16psi in my tyres but should have lowered then to about 12psi.
2011-11-06 Mitsubishi Challengerbmurray2250 Beach run was easy. The inland track had many boggy sections in it. Tyre pressures and clearance make a huge difference

2008-11-29 Ford RangerKeshi Great for camping on the beach! Both lagoons are great for swimming, but the first one is exceptional at high tide. The lagoons were successfully crossed around 30 - 40 minutes before and after the tide changed, but we had a few people walk and swim through the water first - Be careful of a possible strong current / waves
2008-11-16 Nissan PatrolPure Yobbo Drive at Low tide. 1st Lagoon is currently cutting across the beach. You can drive across it low tide without any problems
