Just came back from pebbly beach on Friday , was easy drive across . I was driving a prado towing a fully loaded Jayco swan outback , tyres were down to 22 psi . Rob the ranger there is a very nice bloke and I have his number if you wish to call him before hand to see what the beach is like .

I met some bogan Nissan driver and his family while we were there from up north qld, just hoping they made it home in the floods. ( if they were Toyota drivers I wouldn't care as I know they would have made it home ) . Meet some nice and not so nice ( Nissan drivers. ) at pebbly . Will be planning to go there again soon

Sorry, this is a little of topic. Has anyone done any of the tracks off Candole Rd which runs north off Wooli Rd? I know there's been plenty of rain around lately. We're going camping nearby in about 3 weeks and want to have a cruise around up there.
Cheers.

whats the difficulty of Yuraygir NP? we are doing it at easter from north to south down the middle.

can someone like LordMayhem tell me where i can find some good tracks, look outs etc etc.

we are not interested in mud or bogholes. would like some nice hillclimbs or tracks with articulation.

also looking at going to Bundjalung NP, is that worth the effort?

RWN, Orara is beautiful. I'll be heading out there a fair bit when we're down there. I can't wait for our holiday now...And lunch at the Golden Dog

Mate, I haven't been out in that bush since I was a teenager. And I wasn't exactly paying attention to where we were back then.
But my plan is to just have fun, explore, try find some of the old swimming holes. Then get sick of it, drive 15 minutes in the other direction and spend the arvo on the beach, with a beer in one hand and a fishing rod in the other.

Had a quick look at the piccies in issue 194 (where they talk about Coffs/Orara). Didn't read the details as I was waiting for a train, but it looked like Friday's Creek/Dairyville area. I saw a caption on Dingo Creek. We used to make it (only just) in a corolla. Got stuck near the bridge most times

G'day..
I realise I'm asking questions in a trip report thread.. I'm very sorry, but I'm planning a trip to pebbly in August for four days.. And my question is, has anyone been along the Coast Range road in yuraygir nat park recently?The Coast range road is a right turn off Wooli road and heads south that's if your coming from the north..
What are the track conditions like?
Is it suitable for camper trailers?
Cheers in advance for any replies..

Cheers for that..
The camper trailers that are going are well built off road trailers...
Hey LordMayem roughly how long did it take you to do the full length of the track? That's if you did the full length..
Cheers..
