We keep you up to date with the latest beach reports for Bribie Island and areas.
Welcome to another beach report from Michael and Rick at Gateway Discovery Tours. The inland track is soft in the usual places and we have had a few bogged vehicle recoveries, tyres at 18 to 20psi and off you go, if you’re in a low vehicle don’t drive in the wheel tracks as your undercarriage will drag and you’ll get bogged, instead drive on the high, make a new track, with your tyres at 20psi you drive on top of the sand, remember a wheel spin is not your friend and will cause you grief.
The track at Woorim is also soft and cut up, the first bend when you leave the 8th avenue car park is treacherous with many getting bogged there and usually, the tyre pressure has not been reduced and is at 40psi instead of 20psi. The kangaroos and wallabies are very resilient and there are plenty around, the vegetation in the burnt areas is growing back rapidly after the recent rain and warm weather.
As we head towards Christmas more families utilise the beach, remember it is a main road so watch out for children and respect the rules. The recent story in another paper didn’t get the cause of the bush fire right, but our rangers had to backburn to save the National Park and were certainly not the original cause.
Enjoy our beautiful National Park respect others, it is a privilege, not a right to use it. Have fun and stay safe.
