Not middle Road, Bulwer to north point mutch smoother and shorter there is only one hill that is a bit soft let your tyrers down to 18psi on your car and camper and you will have no problems.Moreton is one of the best Islands you will ever go to I love it.

Just over there a couple of weeks ago and they have opened a new camping area at North Point but from what we saw it is tent access only and cars are also blocked off from getting alongside camp sites.

I believe there are moves afoot to look at stopping beach camping in the Yellow Patch area very soon but I don't think this is in force just yet.

You may want to give the rangers on the island a call to find out the latest and greatest. Apparently they are about to release a new management plan for the island and it will change a number of things about camping etc over there.

Since you are towing and tide permitting I would go via Middle Road and up the beach and up towards the lighthouse and then drop down onto North Point. Middle Road was a bit chopped up on the upward inclines when we were there and this is usually from cars with too high air pressure in the tyres.

You would want low range if you are towing off the beach up towards the lighthouse.

My main reason is because you won't have any hassles with many one way tracks if you go this way whereas places like the Cown bypass are at times a problem if you encounter oncoming traffic when towing as these are narrow two way tracks. At least Middle Road is one way and the beach is good for two way traffic and once you climb up towards the lighthouse the road down to North Point is quite wide also.

Have a good one.

Had a bit more of a think about your question and my initial advice might not be the best as the road up off the beach at the lighthouse could be a bugger when towing and could definitely be a bugger going downhill as it is very steep and rough.

This may make the Bulwer route preferable to you.
