Re: Stockton Beach difficulty rating?
Hi! Darryl & Robyn
This is Dennis & Val.
We live at Newcastle, 30-40 Minutes drive from Stockton Beach. We are familiar with the beach although we still need to explore a lot more of it.The area,dunes & beach are very busy with vehicles & buggys on weekends.
The Beach is 20-30 kms long with numerous Dunes & tracks. The X-Trail handles it O.K. with tyre pressure about 15-18 psi.
There is 2 access points.
1. Lavis Lane:
Near Williamtown Airport
Southern access,Usually very soft sand & narrow track with no scratches for about 500 metres then easy going to the beach.Follow other people's tracks.
X-Trail handles it O.K.( 2nd Gear with a bit of momentum ) about 1 km to the beach/water.
Northern Access,usually quite hard sand & numerous tracks lead to beach.Easy drive onto beach, follow other tracks,quite busy area but no problems for beginners. Garage 2 minutes away to pump tyres up if needed.
Ideal trip is to enter in Lavis Lane,spend some time on beach & checkout " Sygna " Wreck, go up & down sand dunes etc. & continue north along to Birubi Point.
We would be quite happy to accompany you on such a trip along the beach or show you the area. It is a great place to enjoy.
