Some essential equipment for this trek should include an air compressor or manual tyre pump, tyre gauge, valve removing tool, a shovel, an axe, a tow rope/chain or snatch strap and a piece of wood or steel suitable for use as a flat base for your jack to prevent it sinking into the sand.
Preparation for this route should be as for any other relatively remote 4WD track, including carrying sufficient fuel, water, food, supplies, communications gear, safety equipment and first aid
, along with emergency backup supplies.
There are numerous tracks in the area and some may be unnamed or not shown on maps. A wise precaution is to get hold of some updated and detailed mud maps of the area. Be well prepared with a GPS, HF radio
