Any suggestions or additions welcome.
I'll try to limit pictures to 2-3 per track - but some tracks so good they'll need a couple more :)

"Bounty Hill" - because I'd actually pay to watch someone do it! [IMPOSSIBLE??]
An overgrown, EXTREMELY steep, rutted track with a few nasty angles thrown in for good measure.

Cheers guys! Any suggestions or additions are welcome...
Would definitely be nice to see the track submissions and logs working again. I have quite a few to add!

Well done mate. Awesome area review.

what happened to the truck wrong way up on powerlines?
hehe I must say I'm really fond of the upside down 4wd shot :) He wasn't in my group on the day, I just happened to see the aftermath. On this particular climb, the track veers passenger side with a little bit of off camber angle down to the passenger side. For some reason he didn't move with the track, instead, drove the driver side up a large rock on the driver side of the track, and it went straight over. It's not the first time I've seen roll overs on this climb.

Thanks for posting this. It is a very comprehensive list of the drivable tracks in the area. Looks like I've done all of them except for Axe Hill and the track opposite to the Lost City.
While on the subjects of the Newens Plateau, does anybody know the exact location of the old correctional camp in the Bungleboori area?

jbe,
I've never heard of it but I'll ask a friend who knows that area even better than me.
Surely you haven't done bounty hill ???
