Lowlands and West Cape Howe. ??

Hello,

 

I have another few days off comming up and have been looking into heading down south again.

 

Spent a few hours trying to identify an area i found when i was down there last.. and from Google Earth it looks like its the point around Lowlands. There is an easy walk down to one of the beaches there, and from what i remember it looked fairly easy to access the rocks around to the west (the first point inbetween the two beaches there). But what i have also seen is a fair number of decent looking tracks that would give suitable access to the further souther and western area between Lowlands and Nullaki.

 

Does anyone have experience around this area and can help me out?? Im probebly going to head down to that area for 3 days and would like to do a fair bit more exploring and chase a few big fish down there.

 

I have also had a fair look around the West Cape Howe area, a few tracks there going out to the various points. How are they to drive??

 

Any info is appreciated... especially about the road/track access and fishability of that area.  Got the Patrol now, so im up for a bit of 4x4 action.

 

 

Cheers,

 

George.

If you keep going west from that point in between the 2 beaches, there is a few spots.

There is also some rocks which face east, looking along the nullaki penisula. If you go to the deeps check the track first. Its quite a soft hill back up which will require tyres to be about 10 psi (that was in summer anyway, not sure about now!). Also not sure about access at the moment.

Be good to have a air compressor with you. And tie yourself off on the rocks.

 

Haven't explored west cape howe much, but apparently the tracks aren't too bad, just a bit skinny so you get close to the bushes!

 

Google earth is awesome hey. Print some areas out cos its helpful when you get there.
