Zig Zag Track [See Street Map]

Bloomfield QLD
3D Map Tip: To get the most out of this 3D map view, try holding down the 'shift' key, click on the map (and hold down button), then drag downwards.

This track was found by mistake. It hadn't been travelled in what looked like at least 12 months. Definately high clearance vehicles only mainly because of the steep, sharp decents that will tear off your rear bar. There are rocks, mud, swamps and a wide fast running river to cross toward the end. Please note that this entire section of track is a "dry" area so absolutely NO alcohol to be brought in or heavy penalties apply.

Difficulty: Moderate Track Moderate

Features: Sand, Sharp Rocks, Mud, Steep ascents/descents, River crossing(s), Clay

Sorry but sucks to be you because the only "dry" area there is actually the township of Wugal wugal and the road actually starts before wugal and if you where going to drive past the town you use the bypass road and they can't do a thing. just letting everyone know. the roaring megs area where the zig zag track comes out is actually on private property - china camp. Currently they do not really car about the occassional 4x4 thru there because there is no signs at the bottom of the track. Be very careful at roaring meg falls, they have the tendency to kill people, especially men - aboriginal legend and i have had the pleasure of picking up a dead dude from the bottom. Please take heed and be careful at the top of the falls.. you can get out to the creb track and then go north back to the bloomfield road. currently the creb is closed to the south of the roaring megs falls so i have been told.
