Blacksmiths Beach offers great beach tracks, big sand dunes and wonderful scenic views of the East Coast of Australia. Located in the Lake Macquarie suburb of Blacksmiths, this stretch of coastline is open to all licensed drivers and their registered 4WDs. No permit is required but you must follow standard road rules and obey all signage. The beach allows for easy access for fishing (anywhere along the northern part of beach) The access track to the beach is off the end of Awabakal Ave. A small car park is perfect for reducing the air  in your tyres. As Blacksmiths Beach has  some of the softest sand in the country you'll need to reduce your tyre pressures to at least 15psi. This doesn’t guarantee that you won't get stuck, so you should always be prepared with recovery gear including a snatch strap, shovel, shackles or a set of recovery tracks. There are some big dunes and unlike a lot of other beaches, the closer you get to the tide mark, the softer the sand becomes. You need to be aware that you're sharing the beach with walkers, swimmers and fishermen so make sure you approach them with caution. Be aware of fishing lines that may be sometimes hard to see. This is a rather heavily populated area, so Blacksmiths Beach can be quite vulnerable to litter and pollution. You can do your part by taking out what you bring in, and not leaving any rubbish behind. You can also help protect the beach and dunes by driving responsibly and staying off any vegetated areas. This way you can help ensure that 4wds continue to use the beautiful Blacksmiths Coastline. Load the family and a picnic lunch into the four wheel drive and head for Blacksmiths. It's only a short drive up the freeway from Sydney. Stockton Beach is now open with access only from the Gan Gan Road (Anna Bay) entry and the Lavis Lane (Williamtown) entry which now includes a sealed access carpark. The beach front and the Recreation Vehicle Area are open for driving. All dunes, back-beach and swale areas between the Lavis Lane and Gan Gan Road entrances are closed to driving - do not follow tracks into these areas. Permits are required for Stockton Beach and more information can be obtained at -   http://www.worimiconservationlands.com/services.php?top=services&category=about&sid=74  Watagans National Park is available for medium sized 4WD and has areas of steep gorges and rocky ridges for serious drivers, as well as well-maintained roads for the easier driver.
