  1. West Cape Howe & Bornholm

    Westcapehowe
  2. Access to Shelley Beach is on a good gravel rd. West Cape Howe itself is hilly terrain.Woop-de-doos are common and damage could be done to low running boards etc on some vehicles.The track out to Dunksy Beach requires a soft sand hill climb with a "jump-up" at the top. Low clearance vehicles may have trouble (Jan 16)

    The track into Bornholm is not for the inexperienced. Very low tyre pressures (12lb psi) may be required as the sand is very soft. The area is very steep and the track has consistent woop de doos. When descending keep to the left hand track, as the track has little or no scope to allow two vehicles to pass each other. In a nutshell when you start the descent you may have to go all the way to the bottom enabling you to safely turn around.
