4wd Access

Deep Creek Conservation Park provides a range of driving experiences for both conventional and four wheel drive vehicles.

All but 2 tracks in the Park are accessible with a conventional vehicle throughout the year as the network consists of compacted rubble roads. Some sections may at times become corrugated requiring speeds to be adjusted accordingly.

Four wheel drive vehicles are required to gain access to the following sections;

  • Blowhole Beach from Cobbler Hill Picnic Area onwards
  • Boat Harbor Beach from gated signpost on Tapanappa Road onwards
  • Backhouse Road to Range Road
