4WD and off-road driving in NSW

Gloucester Tops, Barrington Tops National Park

If you love four-wheel driving, off-road driving, or quad bikes, NSW offers plenty of exciting drives. From hands-on, interactive tours on quad bikes, to the choose-your-own-adventure experience of hitting the road in a 4WD and exploring the state’s beaches and national parks, there’s something for everyone.

The northern parts of NSW offer some great 4WD terrain. Behind Port Macquarie, the dirt roads through Werrikimbe National Park have steep drops and sharp bends to keep you busy. Further along the North Coast are some great off-road experiences - Bretti Nature Reserve in the Upper Hunter, Hat Head near Kempsey and Dorrigo on the Coffs Coast.

Four-wheel drives are also permitted on the beach in the Myall Lakes National Park between Hawks Nest and Big Gibber and at Worimi National Park. For beach driving, make sure your vehicles are registered and display vehicle permits, where necessary.

One of the best places in NSW to ride quad bikes is the Worimi Sand Dunes, part of the unparallelled Stockton Sand Dunes formation near Port Stephens. This is also excellent terrain for four-wheel driving, and there are plenty of tours on offer for a safe, hassle free but no less exciting experience traversing these iconic dunes.

During the warmer months in the Snowy Mountains, there are some fantastic 4WD and quad bike touring options in Kosciuszko National Park. Tag-a-long tours and 4WD touring are popular in Outback NSW - Kinchega and Sturt National Parks are great locations to explore. There are plenty of accredited 4WD tour operators who'll take you on a 4WD safari.
