Australia's
Exotic Island Getaways.....

 

 

 

Four Wheel Driving on your exotic vacation !

Queensland's magnificent beaches are great places to swim, fish, camp and explore. Please look after the bush and beaches when you visit and leave them unspoilt for others to enjoy.

Where can you drive ? There's plenty of exotic getaways in Australia, but if you're going to travel on Fraser Island, the only way to do it is in a four wheel drive. Many roads are reasonably easy to navigate and with a little care will take you to most of the major attractions on the island. Four wheel drive vehicles can be hired from a number of companies in Hervey Bay and on the island, but if you plan to hire a 4WD for your exotic vacation, don't forget to book ahead.

When driving on the beach, drive on the harder sand between the waterline and the high tide mark to get the firmer surface. Remember that other people use the beach, so stay alert and follow the normal road rules. Please drive carefully and use only designated access points and keep off the sand dunes. Don't 'bust dunes' - please protect them.Four wheel driving on your exotic getaways in Australia

Exotic Getaways - Hints for beach driving:

Travel at low tide or within two hours either side. You should consider reducing tyre pressure to maintain traction. However, don't forget to reinflate your tyres to resume speed on harder sand or surfaces. Always carry a pressure gauge togther with a pump to reinflate your tyres before travelling on normal roads. Reduced tyre pressure will reduce your vehicle's performance, so remember to avoid sharp turns, sudden braking, high speeds and driving over rough surfaces. Tyres have been known to come off their rims and serious accidents have occured. Be prepared to get your vehicle out if you get bogged in soft sand. Carry a shovel, tow rope or traction aids and know how to use them.

Rules for beach driving: Driving on beaches can give you considerable pleasure. However, please be considerate of the other beach users. Follow these tips when driving: Plan your trip before you leave and obtain maps. Observe all the rules and regulations relating to driving on beaches. Remember, these regulations vary from place to place. Contact the local Council or Park Ranger for this information. Be alert and drive carefully and slowly. Do not drive when you are tired and certainly do not drink and drive. Respect the wildlife. Keep the beaches and dunes clean and carry your rubbish home. If others have left a mess, please consider cleaning it up. Ensure your vehicle is mechanically sound before you visit. Ensure your vehicle is in 4WD when on sand. carry a first aid kit, adequate water, food, fuel and spares. Ensure you have a valid vehicle permit for those areas where a permit is required. Let a responsible person know where you are going and when you are expected to return.
