Went for a drive along the beach early this morning just after low tide. Usually dont even air down but today dropped down to 14 psi with lockers engaged and I was digging the troopy out for 30 mins after stopping. Another guy in a triton was having the same luck near the water. The sand seemed fluffy and aerated and had no bottom to it even just above the water line. Havent had rain here for ages, maybe the cause. Anyway just be cautious.

do you need a permit to drive on the beach at South Ballina?
i was there last Easter and don't recall needing one, only the fishing permit, but a mate said we got one which i don't recall doing. just wondering is all.

No you dont need a permit from South Ballina down to Evans Head. I think its about an 18km drive on the beach.

Hi rumpig. You need a National Parks pass for the Bundjalung National Park south of Evans Head. Perhaps that's what was being referred to.
It is important to always maintain a sense of proportion
