Robe 2017 EASY / MEDIUM

Robe/Beachport, SA

See more trips
The annual 4wdtrip journey to Robe is on again!

Many details to work out but we are going to have 2 convoys running in opposite directions each day out of Robe and Beachport. Sand driving is fairly easy stuff - you can do it on road tyres and all terrains just fine, muddies are actually a hindrance but I was fine on them last year. Please bring whatever recovery gear you have, don't stress though if you aren't set up for a Simpson crossing! Please note that rated recovery points are mandatory for this trip! It's almost inevitable that someone will get bogged. Please also note that this is still a trip for 4wds with dual range transmissions. There are some areas that do require low range gearing.

This will cater for everyone from first time sand drivers to the experienced.

We will be staying at one of the region's caravan parks so camper trailers will be ok to bring. Just not on the sand itself. We will be reserving the caravan park once the trip is filled and will require everyone to make payment in advance of the trip to secure the sites. More details to come on this.

It's about a 6.5 hour drive from Melbourne so it will mean an early start on Thursday morning.

Please note you must have a sand flag for the trip.
