We have saved our own backyard for last. NSW packs a lot of punch when it comes to 4WD tracks and here we have named a few of our favorites and why they should be on your bucketlist

The Barraba Track

One of the absolute best is The Barraba Track located in Mt Kaputar National Park. This track is 8km long and takes about 3 hours of steep rocky valleys and unbelievable views, that were formed when there was volcanic eruptions millions ago. This track is of moderate difficulty and its best completed with a mate and also in the dryer months – it can be closed due to wet weather. You do need a permit for this park (https://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/things-to-do/4wd-touring-routes/barraba-track), so why not make a weekend of it and take in some other activities the park has to offer – camping, bush walking, other 4WD tracks and animal watching.

Bridle Track

All the off road adventurers love this one and for good reason. A whole day packed with rocky and death defying cliff tracks – this one is a must. The track was originally formed by stockman’s that would take their horses to the goldfields. Its best explored with a friend and during spring-autumn seasons as there is fantastic camping and fishing there.

Stockton Beach

How could we not mention this one! One of the most popular spots to 4WD in NSW, it makes for a perfect picnic day or a camping weekend. As the name tells you – it is a beach so expect sand dunes and shores to explore at low tide. You can swim, snorkel, and try and spot tank traps from World War II.
