Discover what attracts 4WD Overlanders to these amazing places.

 

VICTORIA

  1. Victorian High Country: Offering epic views, crystal clear waterways, brilliant camping spots, ghost gums, historic huts and of course some of the best mountain tracks in the world.

  1. Little Desert: The ideal place to learn the ins and outs of sand driving, with hundreds of kilometres of tracks covering what was once sheep country.

  1. Border Track: Running along the VIC/SA border, it’s an epic challenge with tall and steep dunes, mud sections and corrugations.

NEW SOUTH WALES

  1. Darling River Run: A mix of blacktop, red sands and black river soil, enjoy national parks, farm stays, outback pubs, river towns and even a bit of Burke & Wills history.

  1. Sturt National Park: Diverse with excellent campgrounds, pastoral and explorer history, flora and fauna and don’t forget the Cameron Corner Store.

  1. Lake Mungo: Part of an ancient lake system that holds significance to the local Aboriginal people with the stunning Walls of China, impressive Visitors Centre, and self-drive loop road that highlights the pastoral history. 

 

QUEENSLAND

  1. Big Red: The largest dune in the Simpson Desert, it is almost a rite of passage to get your 4WD to the top. This epic destination is a must and is only 35km from Birdsville and home to the Big Red Bash.

  1. Cape York: It can be a challenge to get there, especially if tackling the Old Tele track but it’s the northernmost point on the mainland, so it’d be boring if it was easy.

  1. Channel Country: When it comes to remote touring, this region is one of the best destinations in the country with plenty of iconic pubs, stunning national parks and excellent riverside camping.

 

TASMANIA

  1. Balfour Track: Challenging 18km with long canal-like stretches of water, this is a bucket list 4WD track. You need to carry recovery gear and a water bra, pick up a permit from the Parks Office at Arthur River and travel in a convoy.

  1. Sandy Cape Track: A exhilarating 4WD adventure that includes exceptional coastal scenery, muddy waterholes and a beach drive with potential quicksand, creek crossings and a raging ocean, don’t tackle this one solo. 

  1. South Bruny Range Track: This 24km track on Bruny Island traverses through bushland and ends with a 3km beach drive to the prime beach camping location at Cloudy Corner and is only accessible by 4WD.

ACT

  1. Brindabella Ranges: Extensive network of often challenging 4WD tracks through mountainous terrain and across ridgelines that offer spectacular views across the range. 

  1. Tallaganda National Park: Fire trails throughout this relatively unknown park offer a variety of 4WD opportunities and you may not see another living soul.

  1. Blue Waterhole: Cross the upper reaches of the Murrumbidgee River before following the 4WD trail past Coolamine Homestead and down to the campground at Blue Waterhole. Walking trails and old huts dot the area.

 

NORTHERN TERRITORY

  1. Kakadu: Rugged beauty, ancient rock art, billabongs, waterfalls and wetlands, big crocs and barra plus some 4WD tracks to campsites that allow you to escape the crowds.

  1. Litchfield: Stunning waterfalls, magnetic termite mounds, historic sites and a couple of 4WD tracks that show off hidden secrets that most visitors don’t get to see.

  1. Binns Track: At 2239km this 4WD route has plenty of bulldust, dirt roads, low-range tracks and a little bit of bitumen in between. The track also includes two awesome national parks; Iytwelepenty/Davenport Ranges and Judbarra/Gregory National Park. 

 

SOUTH AUSTRALIA

  1. Flinders Ranges: Towering mountains dotted with station stays and plenty of 4WD tracks leading to the most stunning views you’ll ever experience. 

  1. Simpson Desert: Burnt orange dunes, colourful sunsets, salt lakes, dingoes and camels, wildflowers and gidgee. The Simpson is a vast desert with plenty of tracks to test you and your vehicle and the camping is next level.

  1. Robe: Home to some of the country’s best beach driving destinations, don’t forget to take a tyre deflator, air compressor, recovery tracks and snatch straps at a minimum, the sand can catch out the unwary or inexperienced 4WDer.

 

WESTERN AUSTRALIA

  1. The Kimberley: The Gibb River Road with all its gorges is the most well-known Kimberley destination, however, there are many more places to take your 4WD including Kalumburu, Ivanhoe Crossing, Old Halls Creek Track, Mitchell Falls, Purnululu, the Munja Track and the Carson River Track.

  1. The Pilbara: A great 4WD touring region, the Pilbara is dotted with amazing national parks such as Karijini and Millstream Chichester as well as some excellent low-range tracks that include Mount Meharry, Kalgan Pool and Hickman Crater.

  1. Canning Stock Route: The longest, most remote track in Australia, there is no bigger challenge than the Canning. Rough as guts and with only one refuelling option at the approximate halfway point, even if your 4WD is in top condition, carrying spare parts is the safest option. Vehicle recoveries don’t happen out here.
