We plan to drive from Tea Tree Crossing (if no water) on Dec 28th to the mouth or as close as we can get in view of the working going on. I am also aware it does not open until 24th Dec.

Have read a little info on driving along here, i.e. staying as high as possible (recent article in 4x4 mag), but looking for any hints from those who may have done this before.

Carry more fuel?

Tyre pressures? 15 ppsi ??

I blieve that there is not much movement in the tide .49 to .99, so this should not be an issue. ?? Dodge tide the next day I believe.

Any info would be appreciated.

Should be easy, and it gets easier as you get further north.

Staying high is critical between 42 Mile & Tea Tree, less important after that, because the beach flattens out. That means there are less gutters = less fishermen = less traffic = less ruts = better clearance = easier driving = higher tyre pressures = better fuel economy. As I can't tell how much your fuel tank holds, I can't say if you will need more fuel!

There should not have been too much traffic to loosen the sand up, so start with 18psi.

Cheers

PS. Take a polar fleece or similar jacket for warmth at night. Better to be safe than sorry.
