Issue 85 New South Wales




This issue is an around-the-grounds report on 4WDing in our most populace state, and it proves that you’re never too far away from an escape clause.

In an ever-shrinking world where people geo-locate every semi-secret destination it’s good to know that you can still slip off into relative peace and obscurity even if your working week means you can’t leave the big smoke.

This issue is for the workaday legends who support their families in Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong, just so they can make a break for it on weekends and school holidays.

Across the magazine we cover coastal zones north and south of metropolis that can be easily reached, and we also lift the lid on five failsafe getaways a little ways west, just over the range.

Much of this touring guide might only suit weekend getaways, but they can be every bit as rewarding – in the short term at least – as spending six months on the road.

Split the city.
