There's always a queue to get off Bribie.
There's always some stooge who thinks he can be a hero and get past the bogged cars.
18 psi, Hi range and around 2000rpm and I've never had any issues getting off the beach regardless of track conditions, and I'll never tire of the "howd'ya do that"
As mentioned before it's all about patience, tyre pressure and also tyre height/size.

Yeah i agree. Last time i was there it was "really bad" and i managed to get up without flogging it towing a boat trailer once the track had cleared. Tyre pressure is the Key IMO.

Ive seen that cutting as bad as it gets, and never been stuck there. People just don't know what they're doing.

I'm usually one of those people driving past the line up and carrying on with my trip home. Sometimes ill stop to drag people out if no one else is helping. The big line up occurs when fools get stuck, and then people just line up and wait instead of helping. I'm confident in my vehicle, experience and driving ability, to know I can drive past and not get stuck, and even stop in the powder to drag people out. I'm not lining up behind a bunch of vehicles because people don't know what they're doing, or shouldn't be there in the first place.

Funny. Usually the A'holes who queue jump seem to be driving 200 Series 'Cruisers............
From what I have seen anyway. :D

Remember if your experienced at some stage you were once a novice so go easy on the beginners like homersimpson ( the original poster of this thread not the cartoon character ) You can tell he his a beginner as he is going to try 12 psi next time cause he was having trouble at 20 psi.

homersimpson if you are having trouble at 20 psi which is your starting set pressure drop by 2 psi only & & if still struggling keep dropping another 2 psi until your 4wd will float over the sand. Going down to 12psi from 20psi puts you at risk of rolling a tyre of the bead if your ideal pressure is 16psi.

As for so many people getting stuck & experienced people not helping , you have to remember the experienced people aren't the RACQ the same way you don't pull up on the Gateway Motorway to help every one who has broken down .
Of cause this rule changes when you are travelling in remote areas or areas you know don't have good phone services.

If you are a beginner & some is trying to give you help who has just breezed passed you with no trouble at all , that;s because he knows something that you don't so it could be worth you listening to someone with more experience.
Another thing for beginners if you want to go & do sand driving you should have fitted at lest 1 recovery point front & back & carry a snatch strap if you don't want to ring the RACQ for a recovery.

If you experienced people are getting annoyed with the beginners blocking the exit to this beach why don't you see the local council & make it a requirement of not just having a 4wd but also as a minimum to carry a snatch strap & to have a minimum of 1 recovery point front & back.

Hahahahahahahaha. I don't get annoyed when people get stuck, I just pull out my deck chair! Tyre pressure and correct gear choice with good throttle control. Drove around a dude bogged on eastern side of Leisha track (DI) and I was in 2wd, it's a lifted v8. So I'm not sure what the ones on your said day trip were doing? It always amazes me what some people drive onto the beach and then ask 'what am I doing wrong?' while they try to work out how to get the outlander's guts off the sand

Has anyone been up there lately? Have any of the lagoons opened up to the ocean yet?
