Had a great weekend away with some great like-minded 4wd'ers (fellow Prado owners ;) ), exploring Sundown NP.

Great way to start off with a few little washouts and rocky sections. One little washout gullies provided some playtime, but unfortunately for...

Took the Vitara to a NEW 4WD Park that I hadn't been to b4 with some fellow Prado 4WDrivers....

Sundown NP Recce
by robmacca on Aug 30, 2011
Ballandean, Queensland, Australia
Offroading | 183 miles
Did a quick midweek recce down through Sundown NP. Hadn't been there for quite a few years, but the place is looking a lot better after the rains at the  beginning of the year. Great place for camping & relaxing... the only thing is to travel the 20kms from the entry to the campgrounds, it takes some 2hrs to travel..... Which is probably a good thing.
