TOP ENTRIES FOR THE TOP ADVENTURE SPOT
It’s no secret Land Rover owners find themselves in some pretty spectacular places throughout Australia. These restless modern day explorers venture far and wide, discovering unique pockets of paradise.
We put out the call to our Land Rover fans to show us their Top Adventure Spots, featuring a shot of the Land Rover that got them there. Our favourite would win a weekend with the New Defender.
Let’s just say, the response was as epic as the spots that we’ve featured below.
THE TOP SPOT: LUCKY BAY
Lucky Bay is a renowned swimming, bush walking, fishing and camping spot in WA, around 45 minutes out of Esperance. You can head skywards and rock climb or head the other way and dive in for some snorkelling.
All the while, you’ll be sharing this spot with an entire colony of friendly kangaroos, who, incidentally, don’t mind a good sunbake on the brilliant white sands.
What a Top Spot. Hopefully we’re all lucky enough to get to Lucky Bay one day.
As the name suggests, there are springs - hot springs – with swimming made simple thanks to wooden access areas. The highly mineralised water temperatures range from 38 to 43 degrees Celsius, so bring your rubber duckie.
And when not floating around, there are plenty of tracks to walk around and places to camp.
Thanks, Peta for your Top Spot tip.
DOUBLE ISLAND POINT
And what headland wouldn’t be without a historic lighthouse to explore.
Thanks for sharing this Top Spot with us, Peter. Tight lines to you.
Craig has ventured along the clearly marked 4WD track to Bellingham Beach in his Land Rover Discovery. Now let’s be clear, this is one track where you certainly need the capabilities of a Land Rover to negotiate. Along this coastal route track you’ll definitely encounter your fair share of bogs, slopes and soft sand.
Catering for the more experienced adventurer, the track is clearly marked and even offers a place to safely deflate your tyres. The campsites are un-serviced, so you’ll need to pack the lot.
Then once on the beach, it’s surf fishing, walking and taking in the stunning vista.
Thanks, Craig for sharing.
Honeycomb Gorge received its name because of the unique potted hexagonal formations you’ll find on the rock faces, created by generations of water spray and wind from seasonal storms.
This spot is as outback as it comes: red sand dunes, fields of spinifex, and wattle. So you’ll need to load your Land Rover with all the essentials, including water, if you’re going to make the trek.
Thanks, we hope everyone gets to comb this spectacular gorge at least once in their life.
