    Camping on Main Beach this weekend. Beaches are great. 20 psi in tyres and no probs. Straddie Camping are saying no driving 2 hours either side of high tide but Main beach is no probs at high tide if you dont mind slogging it out in the soft sand.

    Hi Linedropper
    That sounds good. How about the on/off ramps?

    I drive up at double island heaps of times but straddy is a first. Is it a good run to jumpin pin end. Hi tide 12.30 pm on friday, prob be ok about 3.30pm?

    Can you drive up to the lake without any dramas?

    cheers

    Depends on what you are used to. Compared to somewhere like Noosa north shore or Rainbow, Straddies beaches are soft but with correct tyre pressures and techniques you shouldn't have any issues. Last time I was there we did the full length of Main Beach in 3rd gear low a couple of hours after high tide. You won't get away with not dropping tyre pressures like you can up DI way.

    No probs with the ramps at all. Dont stress it all easy as at the moment. Pin is prob cut off 2-3 hours either side of low due to downed trees.

    Pretty sure you can be fined for driving an hour either side of high tide?

    Main is usually softer than Flinders. Both great beaches. If one is windy you an go the other. I think Rangers to fine from time to time for high tide driving as it chews up beach and sometimes people go very high to avoid waves and I have seen people wrecking the vegetation which is crazy if we can't to keep,driving on these islands for years to come.
