Howdy guy's,

Has anyone used the registered 4x4 track just off Thomas RD in winter?

Have been there this summer and the limestone climbs and decents have been fun but there is a section over the back that looks like it gets nice and muddy in winter?

Any fun to be had in winter?

I was out there yesterday and it was ok - no one else around. The only trouble with winter is that the sand compacts and you get more people, weekends are a disaster. The mud lasts for a while but again, if you are there on a weekend you get to either help recover or watch stuff that should win money on Toni Pearens show. rgds

Hi Mark,

It's at the west end of Thomas rd, about 200m up from the lights on Rockingham rd (on the right).

Let us know if you have any fun there!

Cheers.

Boeing,
There's some soft stuff on the left as you head East up Thomas Road (Western end as well), I've never been on the R/H side, interesting............ The only thing I don't like is the sand is that black silty stuff that gets in every orifice, plus what out for the dirt bike riders there have been some nasty accidents in this area. Keep the shiny side up

is that a challenge ross?????? :)
great little spot in there, as long as you watch out for all the car bits floating around.
the back area gets nice and slippery when wet, the old limestone quarry walls are quite a climb and the sand can get real soft in the middle of summer.
a small piece of 4x4 nirvana right on our doorstep.....
oh,,,and watch out for all the trailbikes....

Sorry,

No gps reading, but its realy easy to find. If you start at the ocean end of Thomas rd (at lights) head in the direction of the hills and about 200m on your right you'll see a little sign on the middle island saying 4X4 VEHICALS and there is a break in the island to cross over through the trafic. See how you go!

Cheers!

where synergist says to go will lead straight into the old quarry,,,,another way in is:::
south on rockingham rd,,,,,,,approx 200mts past thomas road lights- just before bridge-turn left onto track,,,either straight ahead is back way to quarry or veer off to the right and go past the limestone blocks,,,this will take you around the back towards the clay area( great in the wet)
from there,,,drive to your hearts content,,,just be wary of the motorbikes.....
