Sunny Corner and surrounding areas

On the western side of the Great Dividing Range is some of the most amazing, remote and unhurried 4WDing you can see in Australia. With Bathurst as an ideal base being just 15 minutes from where adventure begins, it's an ideal way to see real Australia on this adventure.

We travel on a beautiful 4WD track to the highest peak around (1300m above sea level) where we stop and enjoy the views over the Bathurst plains. Here we stand higher than Katoomba in the Blue Mountains.

We explore the forests, bush and tackle some great 4WDing on this adventure. Stop for morning tea in the bush; sometimes high on a hill or along a creek. We may even try our luck gold panning over a cuppa (we provide all the gold panning gear too).

You can learn as much or as little as you want about the history of the area, the ecology and geography on this tour. If you're a photographer, you'll be clicking away all day.

Once we leave the peaks, we descend into the valleys sometimes following the 150 year old bullock tracks down into the remote part of the tour.

We generally stop by the river for lunch. We can provide a great Aussie lunch or you're welcome to bring your own. Either way, you'll enjoy a relaxing lunch, the peacefulness and beauty of this day out in the great Aussie bush.

At the end of the day, we re-join the tarred road at the little town of Capertee (between Lithgow and Mudgee) for a peaceful 45 minutes drive back to Bathurst.

We can also provide a half day tour or a high impact 2 hours explorer tour in the Sunny Corner area. Please contact us for details.
