Air down the tyres and have a blast
Pack up the 4WD and hit the road and escape it all with the great outdoors on four wheels! ‎

Nothing beats having a weekend of fun after a long week of hard work. And fun you shall have ‎with the exciting 4WD Beach Drive at Mungo Beach in the picturesque Myall Lakes National Park. It is ‎situated near the Port Stephens region in the North Coast of New South Wales, which is a little ‎under three hours drive from Sydney CBD. ‎

Mungo Beach is not too far from Mungo Brush Campground; once you pass the campsite the ‎beach awaits you and your 4WD. There is no access from the Big Gibber Headland and beach access ‎beyond this point- so keep an eye out for restricted signs as you can get a bit carried away. ‎

Mungo Beach offers a spectacular beach driving experience with long stretches and it begins on the ‎south side of the Big Gibber Headland and curves gently to the southwest. It is the third longest ‎beach in New South Wales and one of the most dramatic with frequent big surf, high dunes and ‎blowouts, making this beach drive one not to miss out on. ‎

If you are planning on taking a break from the excitement of driving or want to take a dip into the ‎stunning beach, then do take care as this beach is hazardous and is known to have rips and currents. ‎

You can enjoy Mungo Beach on foot too!

Surfing can be enjoyed on the outer bar during moderate swell, with the inner bar tending to ‎close out. If you love fishing then Mungo Beach is certainly one for you, it is known to have one of ‎the best vehicle based beach fishing and it is quite popular too.‎

There are massive sand dunes behind the beach which offer great sand boarding and are perfect for ‎just exploring too!‎

Be sure to have a valid National Parks Pass for driving on Mungo Beach (the fines are quite hefty for ‎driving on this beach with no permit). If you forget your pass, do not worry just head to the closest ‎Newsagent and you will be good to go.‎

Mungo Beach is not too far from Mungo Brush Campground where walks, kayaking in the river, ‎swimming and more outdoor activities can be enjoyed. ‎
