Stockton Beach
About the Track
Track Description
Stockton Beach is great place and being close to Newcastle should be a place for all 4x4\'s to stop and have a play.  The sand is  fine so it can get you into trouble quickly if you are a begineer.  20lb of pressure in the tyres we get you over most problems besides stopping in a soft patch.  The dunes can by steep.

44101 This was my second trip to Stockton this year. Fantastic location less than 3h from Sydney. Love the dunes! Make sure you stay within the allowed areas as indicated by the map at the back of the permit. Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sep 15, 2013
42277 Although half of the beach is closed now due to mining. still good place to visit. entrance is at Lavis Lane, Williamtown. Not hard to drive. just make sure you lower your pressure to around 20psi ;p Nissan Navara Sep 7, 2013
41357 Day trip with 12 other members. Started at Birubi end and drove to Tin City and the Sygna wreck before stopping for lunch, then going to have a play in the rva, finding one pretty decent sized dune before heading home through the Lavis Lane exit. A few recoveries, but a really good day was had by all. Nissan Xtrail Jul 21, 2013
41572 First time off road. Entered from Anna Bay, BBQ lunch halfway along the beach front then continued onto the shipwreck and a play in the RVA area. Good fun. Mitsubishi Challenger Apr 26, 2013

42277 If you have not been here and you live within 200km. Must visit! not only there are high chance this will be closed by Greens due to mining. also it's one of best dunes around sydney/newscastle area. quite easy to drive. just remember to reduce your tyre pressure. Nissan Navara Mar 23, 2013

19165 Good day of fun. Good blend of easy sand driving (northern anna bay entrance), moderate deep sand (southern segment nearer the Sygna wreck) and hard deep sand (the back of the dunes). I got stuck as I took the 110 Landy over the first lot of dunes back from the beach. 2 tonnes of truck don't like soft sand! What's more annoying is that my dad in a BT50 cruised past laughing his ass off!!! Maxtrax and a bit of shovelling got me out. Good day out. I reckon the lighter soft roaders would eat this up. Ran about 16PSI in the tyres, seemed about right for most of the beach, could go softer in places!! LandRover Defender Apr 5, 2011
12272 Always soft in the dunes,soft and choppy on the waterfront at busy times (long w/ends,school Hols) Nissan Patrol Jan 23, 2011

12087 this was my 3rd visit. 8psi on soft dune. but make sure you dont do a hard turn with low tyre pressure. it was raining a bit so sand was much eaasier to drive on. must visit Toyota Landcruiser Jul 16, 2010
11114 Great weather for this time of year it was camp Quality day for kids with CANCER plenty of help from all 4wd clubs on the day. Sand was good to drive on. Ford Maverick May 2, 2010
13219 Great fun. Took a bunch of mates camping and driving. 1st time off road. I was ribbed mercilessly by the lads for having a 'button' on my dash which engages 4x4. But the Escape handled it well. Tyre pressure down to 15psi. Will go back for more fun. Large sanddunes can be a bit scary... :-). Ford Escape Feb 28, 2010
