Got a 4WD but sick of driving it like a Toyota Corolla? Change it up and hit these off-road locations outside Sydney.
1. Get Your 4WD Muddy in The Watagans
Location – Watagan State Forest
Just itchin’ to throw your shiny rig in the deep end? A short drive north of Sydney, the Watagan State Forest is ready to receive your rig. Just be careful of all the ditches and mud pits, it might not want to give it back!
2. Find The Lost City in a Fourbie
Location – Clarence, Newnes Plateau
Get proper off-track with a drive to the Lost City. The maze of 4WD tracks on the Newnes Plateau will lead you to a bizarre collection of rock formations that you’d never expect only two hours from Sydney. Make sure you’ve got the skills to find your way out again when you’re done!
3. Drive And Camp on The Beach at Lake Macquarie
Location – Redhead Beach
Readhead Beach is one of the only places in NSW where you can drive your 4WD on the dunes, park up, and spend the night. If you’re looking for a sandy, all-Aussie driving adventure, this is one of the closest to Sydney.
