Four Wheel Drive Tour - Stockton Beach

We needed some instruction on four wheel driving on sand, so we had a tag along tour on Stockton Beach. It was brilliant!

Driving Down Sand DuneFollowing our morning mountain bike ride we arranged a tag along tour on Stockton Beach for the afternoon.

Our guide was Bruce, Bruce what Bruce lacked in height he made up in enthusiasm!

What an adventure. We arrived at Anna Bay where we met Bruce and another family. The three cars set about lowering our tyre pressure to such a degree that I thought our tyres would fall off the Bogged Four Wheel Driverims (12 - 15psi) and we headed off.

We travelled around 60kms in total over a four hour period. We went as far as the Sygma Wreck 23kms SW of Birubi Point. We saw the squatters dwellings at tin city and traversed massive dunes in our four wheel drives.

We got bogged, went sand boarding and learnt a lot about the capabilities and limitations of our vehicle.Em Sand Boarding

By the time we returned and cleaned the sand from the car it was 11:30pm. We slept heavily that evening.

At night it rained and we didn't get wet :)
