Point Plomer to North Shore
About the Track
Track Description

The track from Point Plomer to North Shore of Port Macquarie should only be attempted by vehicles with ground clearance and 4wd is required if the wet.  The other option to run down the beach closer to low tide but you do need a permit.  The road is full of small water holes and can get a bit deep in some.  All it is a slow run through the area.  It is track to get from Crescent Head to Port Macquarie without heading back to the highway.  No side tracks worth any comments but some good photo spots.

41848 Pretty simple track. Did it 4 times in 4 days ona surf trip. Was pretty chopped up so keep the speed down. Managed to find the bump stops more than once. Plenty of puddles but bases are all solid so traction never a problem. Beats going up the freeway! Toyota Landcruiser Mar 8, 2015
55265 Completed track in standard Jimny. Is good fun after a bit of rain. Some puddles quite deep but easy to do. We started track at North Shore which is the rougher end, by Limeburner nature reserve it's just rough and unmaintaned gravel. You can access beach at Limeburner by paying $7.00 at a unattended pay station. Recommend this track. Suzuki Sierra Jan 30, 2015

42049 Started this track at crescent head first section very sandy with medium depth ruts, great fun for the kids as you can jump onto the beach at several locations, beware you will have to ferry across to port mac or its a long way back around to freeway. Ford Maverick Aug 4, 2013
35281 Went from Point Plomer to North Shore, no dramas in my Forester but was dry as. Bumpy, with muddy sections, sandy sections...bit of a mix! Would be a way different story in the wet! I am not sure if I would make it after some decent rain. Good fun in the dry though. Subaru Forester Jan 5, 2013
