The only reason I was gona start in York, was to get the long drive out of the way in the morning plus have the challenge of doing it backwards. We will see how we feel on the morning. Jnr

Is it true that you could do the powerlines in a pretty basic 4wd if you wanted to? By taking easier paths etc? Or do you need experience to do those whole track?

In my normal group I go with, we have a standard courier Ute, kia sportagr and pathfinder with litlke or no mods and they get through it just. Abit of common sense helps too. Jnr

My parents done it in a stock Prado 120 on H/T tyres not even let down but it was during the summer. From the pics i have seen its pretty wet up there just now and looks a bit more challenging.

I would love to come but have already committed to my backyard this weekend.

There is always a chickens run there, but still get knocked around allot.
and the zook is waiting on new parts to arive :(

You could do it in a Hyundai Getz, as long as you don't mind hearing scraping noises, I'm deadly serious. For the others you can also do it in a comp truck and have as much fun too, choose the lines your are comfortable with.

Stock Subaru Outbacks and Foresters drive it.

It's only wet up the further end of the track.
Most of it's still pretty dry last time I went.
With that said, last 2 times I've gone I've seen 3 get stuck, and at least 1 dead motor.

If you're going to get your aqua on, check the depth the whole way and on both sides.

have done it in an X-trail, only mod was a tarp across the front when doing water crossings for the fun of it, could see just below the water level through the windscreen
If you have low range should have no dramas so long as you don't act like an idiot

water crossings/mud with road tyres? could get a bit slippery right?
