We spent the day at Wheeny Creek and filmed this short clip on one of my favourite (Sydney based) 4wd tracks. If you know the track, hit the share button and then send me some photos of your truck out there.
For those who are familiar with the drive, wait for the very end of the video and see the lookout from a view that you perhaps haven’t seen before.
Wheeny Creek is located in the north-west of Sydney. A very popular destination for Sydney-siders to get off road for a day or an over-nighter.
The best thing about Wheeny Creek is the exploring that can be done. Access to the campground can be done in a 2wd along an unsealed road. Once you are at the campground, you can go exploring the 4wd tracks. There is something for everyone from the most basic through to some tough sections.
If you are familiar with the tracks at Wheeny Creek, another bit of fun is to give the tracks a go at night time. Its a whole different level of 4wdriving. Just remember to stay safe and go with another 4wd.
The camping ground at Wheeny Creek is a large grassy area suitable for groups or there are small areas you can camp that are a bit more secluded. Tents, Camper trailers and even small caravans are all ok.
You are allowed campfires and there is a river where you camp swim on hot days.
Water isn’t available other then the river, there are also 2 flushing toilets.
Being such a popular weekend spot for camping and picnics, please take all your rubbish with you and leave the place clean and tidy for the next group.
