Just back from Vic High Country Billy Goats Track, which you already have Rob. Yeah, a great spot.
Do you have Vic High Country's 'The Haunted Stream'. Closed just now, but a great track with over 50 river crossings.

Hi I have just join the group. I bought a Kluger AWD. Do you have a recomendation of a beach track I can try not far away from Wahroonga (eg could be near Central Coast). I know Kluger is not a perfect off road car. Looking to have a different day at the beach with my family. Thanks

...... It is a seasonal closure track but is currently closed due to be unsafe ( big big holes and rutts ) wear and tear.

As far as I know it will reopen eventually but no date is set

Hey Ziggy, does that include the top half from Epsilon up? I thought it was just the bottom part through Bollards Lagoon? I have accessed it a couple of time via the Toona gate but not for a couple of years now.
Without reading all posts to see if anyone else has already answered this question, I can confirm that the northern part of the Bore Track was still open when I travelled it eighteen months ago.

Wow brings back memories Epsilon Station.I was only 18 we helped blow up some rocks for their septic tank. Then it rained for 3 days it was amazing especially after people tell you how boring the desert is.No way! Then the wild flowers came out , that was when I fell in love with real Australia.

The East Arnhem Land Track...
It's 750kms one way to Nhulunbuy in another country on the same continent and 750kms back out to the rest of Australia.
Getting the permits sorted. Should be in there early next week.

there are some great places to go to that are not heavy 4x4 tracks but definitely worth the effort - Litchfield,grampians,Mt Kaputar , sky trek, five beaches, baalbone, Kakadu , Lorella Springs , and there are some great 4x4 places within these areas such as the three 'lost cities' in nsw/nt/qld
