Mt Barney Retreat offers 4WD tracks for the capable driver.
The tracks have not been designed for four wheel driving but as access tracks to used in the management of bush fires. We don't profess to be a 4WD park but we do offer the tracks that allow the beginner, planning a future adventure to gain some confidence and experience. The tracks can also offer the more experienced drivers a chance to refine their skills.
Though not independently assessed the tracks are graded from an easy drive to a challenging drive. The terrain surrounding Mt Barney Retreat is not easily accessible - especially after rain.
All the tracks are narrow and steep with very little chance of turning around once the driver is committed. So depending on the prevailing climatic conditions all tracks easy or hard do offer challenges.
Remember the weather is major factor to driving in this region (we are 750m above sea level) and along with the remote nature of the location getting bogged or immobilised is sometimes a day long practice in getting out! So the track access will be available only at the discretion of the owner.
There are three main 4WD tracks available to you when staying at Mt Barney Retreat.
