Sunny Corner To Sofala hey all
3 weeks ago me and the family ventured out again and did the sunny corner to Sofala track from the book 4WD Tracks in and Around Sydney.
This is another great all day track/trip and well worth adding to the list if you have not done this . A standard exy can easily drive this but not sure how much the crossing rise after heavy rain.
The beginning (this part of my vid some how got corrupted and lost the footage ) of the track from sunny corner end was a little muddy in some places with lots of branches down across parts of the track which brings you to a beautiful lookout over rural parts Bathurst .
Then you end up on a fire trail that goes for quite a while and brings you out of the bush through the hills past the odd farm .
The first gate you get to has the 4WDs only sign which leads you through along the Turon River ( which had the odd gold paner or two ) with lots of spots to stop for lunch or set up camp along the river.This road goes from narrow to rocky where you need to watch your wheel placement with one little steep hill to climb.
Once finished that part it brings you through another gate which starts the drive through the farm land with animals that can walk right up to your car or cut you off ( silly little lamb )
there is then a few gates to get out and open and plenty of water crossings to go through .
Eventually it brings you to a tiny little Gold mining town called Sofala where you can visit the old goal or visit the old pub.
Overall was a great day and would definately do this track again and try explore the area a bit more.
here is my vid of the trip
