Four wheel driving is a popular activity in the reserve and is also one of the most
significant threats to the reserve’s cultural and natural values. Impacts on significant
cultural, geoconservation, flora and fauna values are extensive throughout the area.
There are concerns about the extent of the track network as well as the scale of land
degradation at some sites. The coastal parts of the reserve are most heavily impacted
by off-road vehicle.

Please respect the environment so that other off road and four wheel drive enthusiasts can continue to enjoy this area into the future.
