Hi Everyone,

Hitching up the camper trailer and taking the family to Woddy Head near Iluka for Easter.

Has anyone got any local knowledge of four wheel driving opportunities in the area.

Cheers

Brian

brian,
Woody Head is a top spot, hope you've got a booking for Easter. 4x4ing is restricted to the beach where you can drive north for about 15km to the national park camping area at Black Rock. from Black Rock it is a gravel road that runs back towards Woodburn "Gap Road". About 3km outside Woodburn heading south you will see the signposts for the National Park access.

Woody to Black Rock is a lovelly streach of beach and a straightfoward drive when the tide is low. i particularly like this run just on dawn when the tide allows.
The only other 4x4 ing is in the state forrests between New Italy and the Iluka turnoff. Nice run can get slippery after rain.

A good day run would be along the beach out to Woodburn a drive in the forrest and back into Iluka.

Peter,

Thanks for the info.

I got a booking late last year so that should all be OK. I gather it is a pretty popular spot.

Cheers

Great place.
Not sure about 4WD'ing though except the beach.
Nice place for snorkeling .. just don't touch the wobbegongs as there are plenty of them and they bite hard and have real sharks teeth. I know that from personal (read as "my own stupid fault") experience. At least it made a graphic shark attack yarn that I get mileage out of with a "show and tell". ( nice circle of half-moon shaped scars on my thigh)
We have seen some BIG wobbegongs in the area and lots of turtles.
Have a great time
Cheers
Oskar

Oskar,

Thanks for the info.

I bet you could get some great mileage out of the "shark attack" story.

Cheers

Typo - Should be Woody Head not Woddy Head - Bloody keyboard has a mind of its own.

Cheers
