I plan to travel in a couple of months from Adelaide across to Head of the Bight and then down to Coffin Bay and Port Lincoln. Whilst there I am planning to explore the 4WD tracks in the Coffin Bay Peninsula and the Jussieu Peninsula.

I am relatively new to 4WDing (have done Robe to Beachport a couple of times and SkyTrek in the Flinders Ranges) so was wondering if anyone can give me the inside word on the difficulty of the tracks I am likely to encounter. My wife and I will be on our own so don't want to take any unnecessary risks. Is there anywhere in particular I should stear clear of, or anywhere in particular I shouldn't miss?

Any help appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Mike, I took a trip down the Coffin Bay National Park 4WD track in January. Like you I hadn't done much 4Wdriving, and found the Yangi Trail quite a challenge. I travel on my own, but knew if I got stuck someone would come along eventually! There were sections of exposed rock, and other sections of pure sand. Talking to a local, he suggested that I put my tyres down to 20 even though there were rocky areas. Part of the trail is along a beach. It is spectacular and worth the effort.
