About the Track
Track Description
Grew up 4wding here, very large area to explore, all sorts of fun driving. There is a big dam in the middle of it with a very muddy track behind it which we have been bogged in several times, there are steep rutted out hills, steep rock climbs, an old empty dam that has turned into a swamp which is fun to fang around in. In general a very large area which is fun to explore with lots of tracks everywhere, can easily spend a whole day there exploring.

42048 Track is now closed with big boulders and concrete blocks plus bulldozers have made mounds and trenches across entry track. Not surprised as last week I went in there was three burnt out cars all within 100m of the entrance. Another great local spot lost. Holden Rodeo Jul 31, 2013

13736 Went in deeper, area is bigger than expected. At the entrance theres now a bypass track to the left going around where the fencing stake is. That stake is in bloody well. Ford Courier Dec 7, 2011

20293 Went for a look, got about 20 metres in and heard a hissing sound from the front and the back. Yep both tyres punctured. On closer inspection there was a big tear in each of the drivers side tyre walls. got out and had a look in the track and discovered that someone has driven a fencing stake into the ground leaving about 3 inches poking out. Guess they don't want 4x4's out there. Getting home became the adventure... Toyota Hilux Aug 26, 2011
14189 Lots of fun. Some gates were closed but not locked. Different grades of tracks for different levels of modifications. Found the un-gated entrance pretty easily Nissan Navara Jul 30, 2011

869 This is all marked as private property and fines apply , it is a great area and a pity its closed off but if you dont mind a fine there is still some entry points Toyota Prado Mar 7, 2011
13736 Foggy again haha. Went looking for stanwell dam, found a marsh instead. Saw sombody on the way out. Good stuff. Subaru Brumby Jan 26, 2011
13787 nice place. i came alone but i've met some other guys there ;) Jeep Grand Cherokee Jan 22, 2011
13736 Went further in, all good. Nice n foggy too. Subaru Brumby Dec 14, 2010
13736 Just a reccy run. Theres one entry point through the bush which you'll miss if you arent paying attention, all other entry points are gated. Heaps of ruts, some deep as, the track that runs parallel to the main road heading north seems to be blocked by some mounds that have been put there for some reason. Good for a play around, havent checked out the whole area since some parts were to risky to attempt alone. Subaru Brumby Nov 24, 2010
