Of course, this is not just for them, that's also for all of us who live in this beautiful country and either have already experienced some of these trips or are planning them in the near future.

This is just a brief introduction to some of the best 4wd tracks in Australia. Enjoy.
Stockton Beach, New South Wales
That may be slightly biased to put this first, but since we are Newcastle based, Stockton beach is our backyard. We have covered some of our Sand Driving Tips in our blog sometimes ago, and Stockton Beach is the perfect place to take your 4wd on the beach.

Stockton Beach distance is approx 53Km, one day will be enough to cover it, and you can use it all year around
Ok, this is a tough one...the Canning Stock Route is one of the world's most challenging and remote 4WD tracks. It runs for 1850km through Outback Western Australia, from Wiluna to Halls Creek, and the minimum suggested travel time is 16 days. May to August is the best time of the year to attempt it. This used to be an old stock route; today is quite isolated and not many services are available along the route so travelling in convoy is advisable
