Brunswick Track number 2!
we explained how we took a while to get here on the last featured track (this being the Brunswick 4x4 Challenge Track) and we had so
much fun and missed doing video on a few locations we saw last time as we had
too much fun!
Well we had to return after speaking to a local bloke who goes by
the name of Wayne. Wayne had a track planned out for us and this track turned out to
be quite amazing!
Brunswick BIG Tyre Country track in short:
The Brunswick track is awesome and not for the faint hearted and if
you have a stock vehicle this track is not for you. This is BIG tyre country
33inch rubber and a 2 inch lift and winches with all other recovery gear is a
minimum requirement in winter! Although the Jeep Wrangler made it through with
32’s with no winching we do not recommend trying this track in winter with
anything less than 33’s.
Having at least one vehicle with 35’s will help you
overcome the track as you will have something to hook a winch cable to! There
are not many chicken tracks along the way. Oh and panel damage is very possible
depending on which track you choose when the options present themselves.
This track has it all, steep muddy hills, multiple river
crossings, medium rock crawling to extreme rock crawling, multiple challenging
steep tracks with deep ruts and surprises around every corner!
Most of this track is focused on the southern part of
Brunswick and joins onto the best parts of the previous Brunswick track already
featured on our website.

BIG Tyre Country track in DETAIL, use with GPS points:
If you use the way
points below this will make more sense, we even show you how to enter them into
Google Earth at the GPS way points segment at the bottom of this page.

day starts from XXXXX rd. just off XXXXX road (BBCP1 Start), turn in
heading north and find a spot to pull over and air down within the first 1km
(see recommended psi in track conditions).

Once ready continue heading north for 2km from XXXXX road
until you hit waypoint (BBCP2) which is the first challenge depending on the
You may find getting one vehicle to the top will be enough to
winch the other vehicles up. Once up the hill continue north until you reach a
creek crossing at the bottom of a valley (BBCP3).
Once across the creek park the 4WD and select 1 of 3
Left track: A gnarly hill with big rock steps & a few
boulders on a very steep hill (this one has claimed a few 4x4’s in the past).
Middle track: A steep hill with plenty of rocks which turns
into a near vertical exit at the top.
Right track: A much easier and far less challenging hill
All options join onto the same track. Once at the top via
either track there will be another choice to make. A crazy hill climb (left
turn) or a deep rutted less
steep yet still challenging hill climb (straight
on). Either track requires good wheel placement and spotting.
Continuing north for about 400-500 meter, this track will join
onto a much wider well used track (BBCP4), heading west for about 770
meters crossing the intersection tracks and stopping before the ROCK step on a
steepish descent (BBCP5).
Once all vehicles are at the bottom continue west following the track around until way point (BBCP6). From here continue on in a North West heading until the
fence line is reached (BBCP7); take a right turn heading east and cross the rail line at (BBCP8). Do we need to say Caution Trains!?
The 1st River Crossing.
Once across the rail line follow the track in an easterly direction, keep to the right hand tracks following the railway for about 1km,
until the river crossing is reached (BBCP9).
This is the first real river
crossing for this track, when we crossed it was near bonnet deep and it has two
entries with only on exit. Walk the river before attempting to determine if
you want to cross or not.
If it’s too deep or you have no snorkel head back
along the railway and take the first right turn and check the depth of the
If this is also too deep (unlikely to be deep however
check it before crossing) then the only option is to turn around and head out!
Once across the river (whichever crossing you have chosen) head for way point
(BBCP10). From here (BBCP10) head north for about 800m up the long wide track
to (BBCP11), Just 100 meters before way point (BBCP11) you will find an open area great
for a lunch stop.
From this point the track joins onto the other Brunswick
track featured on our website:
Continue on from way point (BBCP11) heading west
until the fence line is reached.
Once at the fence line follow it around
heading north and stick with it until the next river crossing is reached (BBCP12).
Along the way to the 2nd river crossing take caution through the deep puddles
and wash outs which are prone to changing after rain fall.
The 2nd River Crossing.
Once at the river crossing (BBCP12) take care down the muddy
descent littered with rocks to a river crossing with a rather tricky steep hill
climb on the other side.
Take care of vehicle damage here as there are some big
rocks which the unlucky vehicle could slide back onto due to the lack of
traction on this muddy hill.
Speeding up is not an option, this short hill
climb requires spotting and perhaps even some track building with the loose
rocks lying around.

During our second visit a bunch of guys had spent 30mins
building/fixing the track, I have to say they did an awesome job!
vehicle had to be winched up and the rest of us made our way up easily. Thanks to the
guys for fixing the hill track!!
DADDY MUD HILL"
At the top head northwest for a short 280m and
a steep muddy hill will appear (BBCP13 “BIG DADDY MUD HILL”) on your right
Head straight up Big Daddy Mud Hill. This requires 2nd gear low for the
entire 440m of some of the most fun you will have climbing a muddy hill.
Stopping on this hill is not a good idea, however if stuck half way reversing
to one of the 3 steps on the hill may give you a fighting chance of restarting
the climb rather than reversing the entire way down.

at the top of Big Daddy Mud Hill (BBCP14) turn right heading east and keep
going until a clearing has been reached (BBCP15). Head north straight past the
clearing towards the fence line in a northerly direction and head towards (BBCP16).
Once at way point (BBCP16) turn left and then turn right at the T junction, follow the track until you get to Bob’s Hill. If you haven’t seen Bob’s
Hill before then it’s well worth a look.
NOW before you even think about
climbing it do you have the following; 37 inch+ tyres, 5 inch+ lift kit, good
bar work, skills and experience in climbing this kind of terrain and NO FEAR of
panel damage! If you have this list covered then go for it!
you don’t then just have a look and admire what others have done and move on.
After leaving Bob’s Hill take the first right turn and head
towards (BBCP18), then take a left turn and head for (BBCP19) which is the 2nd
Once at (BBCP19) follow Big Tree road in a northerly direction
out to the exit waypoint which is (BBCP20)
Track conditions and difficulty:
Hard-EXTREME (Bobs Hill)
As stated above this is BIG tyre country, have at least one
vehicle with 35’s to accompany the other vehicle which must have 33’s and 2
inch as a minimum in winter.
Anything less will result in a very long day with
people waiting for you to move out of the way!
In winter we would strongly recommend approaching with
caution! Only go if accompanied by experienced 4wder’s and recovery gear is an absolute
must this includes a winch! The tracks are rutted, slippery, and very steep,
littered with rocks. Many are semi hidden and wheel placement along with
approach and departure angles are important.
In summer caution is still strongly advised as the soft
edges in winter are now rock solid, vehicle damage is more likely
in this case, but traction is high providing recommended psi advise is followed.
Recommended tyre psi is 16-25, low range gearing is a must
in summer or winter. High clearance 2 inch lift kit or more recommended for all
Do not bring a stock vehicle to this featured track in winter! If
this is your first time off-road do not follow this featured track without
guidance by people who know what they are doing!
Different terrains change all the time due to weather and track usage.
check sand dunes and other tricky areas such as ruts, rocks, off camber tracks
or any other unseen or uncertain part of a location/track.
