Hi all,

Heading up to Yeppoon in July and were thinking of heading up to Byfield NP for some fishing and a bit of 4X4ing. Just reading thru my Dirty Weekends book and it makes a point of saying more than once that it can get REAL soft up there and suitable for high clearance vehicles only. Seriously but, are they just trying to stop average Joe with his Subaru Forrester from going up there or is it a bit tricky? Done plenty of beach driving before - but I still like to know what I'm up against. By the way my rigs a standard petrol 80 Series with 33's on.

Can get a bit soft (see below) on some steep short sections but 90% is OK, just air down more. Was similar to some of the Waddy Pt area at Fraser.

It's not the beach that's a drama it's getting to it and from it. As above you will ! have to air down and may take a few goes at getting up some of the dunes if it's really dry. The views are breath taking but don't take it lightly, air down when you see the sign to less than 20 psi. You'll love the place. It's commonly called 5 Rocks but you can camp at Byfield, though I'd rather camp at 5 Rocks on the beach.
