Heading to the Coorong for the weekend. Hoping to do some 4WDing. Anyone have any tracks they recommend going to? Anything with a bit of a challenge would be great.

Thanks
Paul

The only challenge at the coorong is if you get off the tracks on the beach....
The coorong is mainly a place to go to get blown around by southern winds trying to catch that salmon you always hear about which was biting yesterday...

just go to 42mile crossing which is about 15kms past salt creek on the way to kingston....
you will see a pi$$y street sign pointing off to the right after chinamans well i think it is... follow the roads and you cant go wrong...turn right when you get to the water... follow the track along the water.... you can almost make it back to goolwa if you want to..

I would do the Border Track if i was you.... Now that is becoming a 4x4 challenge....And you are in the area,,, sort of...

Can be a place to avoid in winter with strong winds & high tides approaching the sand hills & variable terrain. However we dont seem to have had much of that weather yet so may be OK if proceeding with caution. Might get onto some big mulloway too!

Paul,
I camped at 42 mile crossing a couple of weeks ago. As mentioned the tracks to the beach arent a problem, but the beach who knows.
I didnt tackle the beach as the whitewater was coming up to the sandhills, others did.
Messent has a short track thru the centre, dont know what its like though.

hi Paul. yes you better stop at salt creek petrol station and pay for the camping fee. Also ask for a map for the area.There is a number of tracks going to the beach. like 42 mile ,32 mile & 28 mile crossing.
happy camping. ... cheers.

Paul,
on a trip south in early 2004 i drove from 42mile crossing to the Granites near Kingston i think about 5okm or so. sand soft but no real problems did it alone with no other vehicles about, took us a few of hours as we stopped at camp spots and heaps of debris and shells on beach. if i wasnt booked on ferry to Tas in 2 days I would have gone back to the murray mouth.
regards peter
