Bribie Island Ocean Beach
About the Track
Track Description

Easy beach driving, can be slow going through the soft sand, travel close to low tide. Access track can be bumpy. Lower tyre pressure recommended.

Due to recent weather the beach may be impassable at high tide, travel as close to low tide as possible.

Weather has also exposed coffee rock and tree stumps north of the campsites, caution is advised when traveling through this area. Again, travel close to low tide, this area is not passable at high tide.

53796 Access track getting off beach was extremely soft and almost impassable. Most vehicles bogged, one actually abandoned in the middle of the track. Drop tyre pressures WAY down. Mitsubishi Outlander Nov 2, 2014
44044 Bumpy going down to beach. Cruisy run providing tide is low enough to drive on hard sand. Would be very soft if tide was high. Lots of traffic but great day out. Holden Colorado Oct 29, 2014
51931 Good for a nice easy drive be careful on the northern track lots of soft sand make sure you got a snatch strap and max tracks are a must Ford Courier Sep 1, 2014
4758 Went for a day trip with 5 other vehicles. It had been raining lightly before we got there and sand was nice and firm. Northern end of the inland track looks like it had been graded and with the rain, made it pretty easy. So easy in fact that the Subaru on the trip to made it through without any problems.

48513 was there both friday and monday on the passed easter Week end,we took a mates little 2013 Kia turbo diesel Sportage, he has 20 inch mags that are seriously wide on there too, was good fun, even though the recovery tractor got stuck exiting the beach, this little kia litterally danced over all the bumps, but GUYS SLOW DOWN on the beach, there was 4 ford rangers on there that day and driving very fast over the soft sand(excess of 70km/h thats what we were doing on the hard sand)they were going fast enough to get 3 and four wheels off, fellas it might be good fun but seriously!!! think of other people next time, Holden Rodeo Apr 18, 2014
42307 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. Mazda BT-50 Oct 7, 2013
42240 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. Jeep Wrangler Oct 21, 2013
37916 Nice spot for a BBQ. Access tracks are very chopped up, let those tires down people Nissan Navara Sep 1, 2013
39738 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. Mitsubishi Pajero Aug 24, 2013
37916 Nice place to take the family for a day out Nissan Navara Aug 17, 2013
38987 easy track no lift needed, just need general beach driving knowledge Nissan Navara Apr 25, 2013
39884 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. Toyota Hilux Apr 20, 2013
19155 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 ... Mitsubishi Pajero Feb 2, 2013

22838 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. Toyota 4Runner Nov 19, 2011
513 Beach run was easy. The inland track had many boggy sections in it. Tyre pressures and clearance make a huge difference Mitsubishi Challenger Nov 6, 2011

6705 Good easy sand driving, should go down onto beach at low tide only, high tide can a bit hairy also you are supposed to stay 5 metres from sand dunes. havnt checked out the camp sites but intend to go camping there soon. Toyota Hilux Nov 1, 2009

1419 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 Ford Ranger Nov 29, 2008
450 What Yobbo said ;) Mitsubishi Challenger Nov 16, 2008
670 Drive at Low tide. 1st Lagoon is currently cutting across the beach. You can drive across it low tide without any problems Nissan Patrol Nov 16, 2008
