Hi all,
Have any of you guys been up to Noosa north shore for a run along the beach over the last week? Heading up next week and wondering if there is any soft sand left?

We went to have a look (just out of curiosity) two weekends ago. We were there about 1 hour before low tide and it was very hard to nget through. There a re a lot of uprooted trees on the beach blocking the way. We only went a for about one or two kms then turned around.

We were up there camping last weekend with the camper trailer on. Used cutting #3 to get on and off the beach without problems. There are a couple of bad bits with rocks that might be low tide only jobs, even at low tide we had no choice but to go right up against the dunes in a couple of spots. Only camped a K or so past the "Camping Allowed" sign so don't know what its like further up. The Rangers office said the beach was bad up past Fresh Water and a mate told me up around the Cherry Venture site was like a slalom course!

No soft stuff at low tide but I reckon a high,high tide would make some parts impassable, especially near the rocky bits, and the ocean was still coming right up to the base of the dunes at high tide, which in parts are heavily eroded. One other thing. There had been some land slides behind the camping areas and one of our fave spots was a metre deep in sand!

I've got a couple of mates camping there at the moment. They phoned from the pub yesterday where they'd gone back to get some more ice. They said that the beach was only drivable about two hours either side of low tide and in places there's some very high drop off's between the upper and lower parts of the beach, also a lot of exposed rocks and dead trees that have to be driven around. Be very carefull.

I'm down at Inskip on a Sand Course tomorrow. Last month it was very ordinary and travel between Rainbow and Inskip was possible only at dead low tide.

I can't imagine that it will have improved with th recent weather.

Well... yes we conducted the course but there was nothing challenging to be found.

I have made arrangements with the clients to have another go at a different location in a couple of weeks.
