Hey guys,

Just wondering if anyone knew of any decent day trips around sydney? Im based out of Dural.. So the tracks I noticed on the database are:

- Bloodwood
- Vineyards

But just wanted to know of any other good day trips around..?

Thanks for any help gang!

Sydney is mostly locked up. Menia is an option but strictly speaking not suppose to be there not that it stops anyone. Being dural based the central coast ourimbah and the wattagans is your best options

A day trip can be anywhere from out Lithgow, up to Newcastle or down to Nowra and anywhere in between. Every few weeks some NSW guys will organise a trip, or feel free to organise one yourself. Or goon your own and tell us all how awesome it was lol

Gees Arm South up at Wheeny Creek if you like some tough stuff. It's a lot more eroded now since I was last there.

Far more enjoyable to chuck a stove, 27 beers and a swag in and make it an overnighter.

What is Gee Arms like mate ,hear its serious rough stuff ,potential panel damage and roll over for higher vehicles?

To answer your questions:

Loads of fun, very technical

Yes it is seriously rough.

Yes for large potential for panel damage.

Yes for rollovers.

It's my favourite short track.

was up there last week clough. the last steps are really washed out, backed out of those ones. all in all it's a bloody good little track. three of us got out with no damage..a bit of rock packing helps, if your unlocked.

Yeah Russ, it's good fun alright. That last step is a bugger and I've yet to get past it, only had my front wheels over the top' of it before I bottomed out.

I love the fact that it really causes you to think about your line.

Surely you've seen the video?? That was when my fridge flew out the back of the car:eek:

Yep, that was me. Fathers Day cruise around. I remember you as you were the only vehicle we passed on the way in.

I've seen an older Pathy in very capable hands get a fair way down the trail with few mods, so you should be sweet depending on your experience. It's a very good idea to go with another car though, as much for having a spotter as security.

Don't worry about A/T's, they'll be fine on the sandstone.

There are heaps of rocks to pack the sections you aren't sure of.

Just remember it's a dead end track, you need to come back through everything, so if there's a section you're not sure of then don't do it.

You will occasionally see comp trucks testing themselves down there. I'd love to go this weekend, but it's our anniversary and apparently I have to go camping;).

The 4wd treks close to Sydney book could be worth a look in..
Nothing tough but super detailed and takes you to some nice places.
