Hidden Hotspots

A number of weeks ago I was lucky enough to get out with the Off-road Adventure Show for a trip through a place I’ve always wanted to visit – Yengo National Park.  After meandering through the park, stopping to check out the beautiful views from some of the lookouts and even admire some of the Aboriginal artwork in the region, we then hit TJ’s 4X4 Park.

We ended up covering off one of the hard tracks there – Jackhammer Loop, and despite having the least modified 4X4 there (an Everest with just a 2 inch lift), I managed to drive the track, choosing to winch in one spot rather than bounce the vehicle over some tough terrain and risking damage. Most people would be impressed with what the Everest handled!

Anyway, after we had returned from the days adventure, I got the chance to catchup with Borgy and Leash to discuss our favourite hidden campsites.  For details, you can check out the video below, but I’ll also share details so that you can simply read on if you’d prefer.
