4WDing and Beach Highways

Queensland is swarming with secret places. But how do you reach all those quiet hideaways, unspoiled fishing spots, prime campsites, and secluded beaches? Hint: it involves jumping in a four-wheel drive and ditching the freeway. Swap bitumen for the beach and cruise a motorway of a different kind.

  • North Stradbroke Island is undeniably one of the best places to experience the thrill of four-wheel driving on a sandy beach. Board your own vehicle onto the barge or join a tour once you arrive on the island.
  • Fraser Island is the world's largest sand island and doesn’t have bitumen roads, so it’s really a no-brainer for four-wheel drive enthusiasts.
  • Let’s talk about spectacular multi-coloured sand cliffs overlooking rolling surf and a white sandy beach. And let’s talk about you, a four-wheel drive and miles of golden sand at Rainbow Beach.
  • Four wheel drive is one of only a few ways to get yourself to Cape Moreton and to the freshwater lakes on Moreton Island, near Brisbane.
  • Advanced drivers will be in heaven with Queensland’s endless beach tracks and trails, and there’s no need for newcomers to be scared off with a range of ‘tag-along’ and guided adventures on offer.

Driving along Queensland’s beach highways is a unique way to absorb spectacular scenery and to access hidden gems, but you won’t get very far without knowing the lay of the land. Check ahead for tide times as well as required vehicle access permits. Always follow the road rules and drive with care.
