I recently drove this track near Port Lincoln in South Australia. I had not heard of it before and cannot find it on a search of Exploroz. This is a pity as it is a spectacular drive.

I purchased a brochure from the local tourist bureau for 50 cents which describes the track- "massive wind sculpted sand dunes, pounding surf, limestone cliffs, breathtaking views."

The 18 km track follows a series of marker poles along the coast. The Eyre Peninsula 4WD Club maintains the poles and produces the brochure. They recommend 20-22 psi and 3-4 hours to drive the track.

The track is a lot of fun to drive. Sometimes locating the next pole can involve a bit of trial and error as they are not all obvious. This only adds to the experience. The sand driving is moderately difficult. There are a few long sand climbs at the Wanna end that require careful gear selection. The track is mostly sand but there are plenty of rough limestone sections as well.

Overall this is a great drive. Many thanks to the Eyre Peninsula 4WD Club for making it possible.

Good find John! Did you happen to have some sort of tracking running? If so we should be able to publish it into an ExplorOz Trek. The first step would be to thoroughly check your file to remove any data errors (you can do this in OziExplorer) then upload as a User Trek. There is also an edit function in the User Trek area to remove any erroneous points/errors. Is this possible?

I'm sorry Michelle, it is not possible. I did not log the track. I did not even look at my digital maps. I simply read the 50 cent brochure and followed the poles.

Sure no worries John, maybe someone with tracking soon will drive it and we can get it from them. Given there's no roads, we probably can't "see" the route on anything to create it without a recorded track file.

Looks great John, maybe even worth a weekender over there to take a drive / camp.
Very similar to Beachport - Robe coastline, and the dunes similar to the buggy club area :)

If I get to it before you or others Michelle, I'll record a gpx file of the drive for you.
Found it easily online here on Google Maps
