Sunny Corner Trek - From 4wd Treks Close to Sydney


Hi Guys,

Has anyone done the Sunny Corner Trek in the 4wd Treks Close to Sydney book in an exy? I did the first part from Daylight Creek Road where it turns into Turpins Fire Trail.

It was pouring down rain and hailing on the weekend when i attempted it and got through the first part ok. The first 3 steep inclines. The conditions where just way too hectic so had to turn around and head back down. It is rated moderate in the book.

Has anyone completed it in the dry?

Hi Jalal,

I searched the link you sent me and searched sunny corner trek and neither have come up with the results i was looking for.

In the 4wd treks close to Sydney there are two treks in this area. Sunny Corner Trek and Touring the Turon.

All the search results found treks that had been done via Eskdale Road and Mt Horrible Road. I believe this is trek Touring the Turon and not Sunny Corner Trek?

It is the one that goes up Daylight Creek Road.


Anyone?

YEP

Maybe we could combine both this and the Baal Bone Gap trips into the same weekend with a camp-over ?

Count me in.

Except how did the Exy go through this track. I went a 1/4 the way through and was like @#$%.
Had awesome fun though, ended up turning around and did the Eskdale Road and Mt Horrible Road way.

Ill keep checking back here for a forum trip organisation event lol

Re: Sunny Corner Trek - From 4wd Treks Close to Sydney


I dont know if there is any camping in the Gardens of Stone NP (Baal Bone) or not.
As for the Sunny Corner, from memory after we left mt Panorama we headed to the mt Horrible trail,Turon Gates, then the Pinacle trail thru farmland to Sunny Corner finish. I think the route in the book is different, the CareFlight guys said there were (too) steep sections following the book .
Both Pinnacle & Baal Bone are dry weather only.
Anyway, with a bit of research we might have a pretty tasty trip brewing here emoticon

Re: Sunny Corner Trek - From 4wd Treks Close to Sydney


A mate of mine at work just did these 2 treks over a weekend with the All Wheel Drive Club.

They started at ZigZag, stopped at the Glow Worm Caves, morning tea at BungleBoori Picnic area then onto Blackfellows Hand Trail crossing over Wolgan Gap Rd onto the Baal Bone Gap track. Lunch was at Baal Bone Gap picnic area before continuing onto Capertree and the short distance down to Turon Gates camping area (with toilets) for the night. Second day was the Sunny Corner Trek finishing at Sunny Corner at 1pm before going their separate ways and heading home.

The vehicles they used were 4WD's but of the 5 that went, only one was modified. I will check at work tomorrow but I don't remember him saying there were any real difficult sections on the trip.

Atleast I have someone with recent experience of the trips to give me some pointers.
