If you are lucky enough to own a 4WD, it’s time to pack the snatch straps, warm up your engines and get ready for endless memories of exciting off-road adventures.
Our destination is packed full of secret places, unspoiled hideaways and the very best camping and fishing spots. Your real journey begins the moment the sealed road runs out so get your rig off the bitumen, pick up some dirt and sand on your wheels and discover the best spots on offer when you #visitcapricorn.
Important note: For those beaches where four-wheel-driving is permitted, drive on the hard sand below the high tide mark only. Turtles nest in dunes above the high tide mark and are easily crushed under the weight of a vehicle. Plus, the tyre marks left behind creates a mountainous climb not a nice flat walk for the nesting turtles. This climb uses up more of the turtles, energy and reduces its chance of survival.
If you come across sick, injured or deceased marine animals, please report to the Marine Stranding Hotline – 1300 130 372.
