If you’re counting down the days to when you’ll be free to get those wheels out on the open road or put your 4×4 tyres through their paces in real muddies’ territory again – it looks like there’s finally light at the end of the tunnel! This month the Maxxis team is adding some more pretty awesome destinations to our “bucket list” to help get your post lockdown (and border reopening) planning and preparations ready to roll!
Blue Rag Range, Vic High Country…If you’re a seasoned 4×4’er (and especially if you have already got RAZR MT772 muddies on your rig) – we don’t need to tell you that the Vic High Country is one of Australia’s spectacularly special places for 4WD fun! Located off Dargo High Plains Road, Blue Rag Range is an extremely steep and rocky High Country track with sharp drop-offs in some places (so this one’s difficult which definitely needs a 4×4 vehicle with good clearance and is not an ideal first adventure for beginners). Being so high up, Blue Rag Range offers some of the most sensational views of the Alpine National Park, as well as some pretty awesome sunrises and sunsets. Best of all, once you’re here you’ll be in no doubt that you’ve left memories of lockdown far behind!
Watagans National Park… Just 142km from Sydney (or an hour from Newcastle) – Watagans National Park will have your long-awaited escape from the city covered! A wilderness of towering rainforests and bird-life, there are bushwalking and cycling tracks as well as Bungalow and Gap Creek camping grounds (bookings are essential)! The main roads in the park are unsealed, and although they are accessible by 2WD vehicles in dry weather, a 4WD will ensure you’re able to make the most of the experience. There are a number of 4×4 tracks of varying difficulty (such as the Erzberg Extream Hill, Greens Break and Drury’s Lane) – which will take you off the main road and put your 4×4 adventurous spirit (and your Maxxis tyres!) back in action through bog holes, mud, potholes, up steep inclines and plenty more to get that adrenalin pumping!
Brindabella National Park… A stone’s throw from Canberra (about 60km) is the sensational Brindabella National Park – which offers a web of 4×4 tracks and trails (both easy and much more challenging options complete with deep ruts and rocks) just waiting to be explored! Flea Creek campground near the Goodradigbee River is one of a few picturesque campsite locations where you can set up and enjoy some fishing, bushwalking or just kicking back and enjoying being back in the great outdoors.
Not long now … There’s pretty much nothing else on earth like getting back at the wheel and seeing some of the amazing places around Australia that your Maxxis tyres take you — so make sure they’re checked and you’re ready to get on out there as soon as lockdowns lift and borders reopen.
