So. Port, melbourne. Waiting. To get to, the ferry terminal. Spirit. Of tezi. Gave. Arrived. Before. Us. Just, maybe. You. Monday. Morning, first, and tezi good, night, sleep. Nixon. The train line was view over the ocean though drove, into Bernie head breaky stocked. Up on fresh, foods and. A, couple of things and now we heading. Towards handicapped. After. Checking out rocky cave he, saw. A sign, to. A lighthouse, table. Cape lighthouse, so. We had a quick, look around there. There. Arthur river beach, dragons, on the way to sandy, cape and, was. A good test. For us to make sure that our tire pressures, and everything spot, on, the. Tire pressure for me on the cruiser is between. 20. And 30. Psi, sounds. An awful lot but, it, turns out on, the landcruiser that. Pretty. Much begs out nicely and hasn't given, me any issues, anywhere. Driving. On the beach at arthur river or sandy, cape requires, a beach permit, which, can be obtained at the local ranger station the, arthur river beach track and the, track - sandy cape are classed as hot and should, only be undertaken by. Experienced. Drivers, with, well prepared vehicles, as every, year they are quite a few vehicles lost, when. You get your permit, at the ranger station just. Have a look at the wall and the. Many pictures of lost, vehicles, around that area. After. We left the beach at sundown point we drove a couple of more gravel. Roads towards, ordinance, point. We. Just. Hitting. Sandy. Or on the way to sandy cape at, hazard, pay and. We, just made a. Quote. And, the. Motorbike and apparently. There's. A bit, of quicksand, the, motorbike, disappeared. Up to the handle so. Yeah it could be interesting. We'll. See how that goes I hope. We don't disappear. Trying. To find that. Supported. River Campground looks like it the African savannah here. After. Playing around at the sandy cape lighthouse it, was time for us to find a suitable campground. Fortunately. We, had the whole sandy, cave to ourselves. Not a single soul around and. The. Landscape, and, scenery, is, breathtaking, it's. Like. You said back in time a million, years, we. Managed to find a beautiful campground, right next to the river. I mean, even in Bush repairs. We're. So hold I don't. Know, it'll be an anthem where you drive over it, down. Path to deed no. Okay, while, John jamun finished his tire appears, Dave, and myself decided, to. Have a swim in the pretty. Fresh North, Paris River some. Locals, rigged up quite, a big. Flying fox however, we did, not. We. Spent the evening around, the bush TV and were. Greeted by an absolute, stunning, sunrise. The. Next morning. Tuesday. Morning we just yet sandy Cape we packing our vehicles, because, we gotta. Be tickling Bell for now looking, forward to it but I better. Get my. Recovery. Gear ready. Because. We. Never know what's going to happen apparently, it has quite, a bit of water again there. Definitely is quicksand, around so you really have to be careful where, you cross and, how close you drive to the river nuts before. We start hitting the bell for Trek I'll leave you with a few more impressions of this incredible. Landscape which. Made me feel like I was the last man on earth. Are we making it, we'll. Find out. The. Most of the Belfort trick is pretty straightforward, driving. Through. The open. Grasslands. Which, is quite picturesque, on the first few kilometers, of the trek we encountered, a few puddles, but. They all had a firm ground and we're in too deep nothing, which could get us into trouble. We. Arrived at a fairly decent looking, book and Dave. Being first in line thought he gives straight, on a protocol. That. Didn't, turn out too, well he, took a fairly slow approach, which. Is good because you don't know what's in that bubble however. Really realized, he, wouldn't.

Proceed, Any further forward. He managed to reverse back, out and, no harm side a little bit of water in, the footwell was, done, you. Can see how death is turning, the steering wheel left to right to, gain a bit more traction for the tires. We. Then all took a different line which, had a fairly, firm bottom, and wasn't. Too deep. It. Was time to hit the last obstacle of the Belfort wreck which. Are the very long mud, puddles the, deepness obviously. Depends, on how, much rain there was before, fortunately. We hit it when it was not incredibly, deep so, we, had, no water ingress in any of our vehicles. This. Is a straight, forward section, of the Belfort, wreck, the, underground, is fairly. Hard there. Are some rock. Steps rocks, and, ruts in it but. There's. Plenty of traction. Little. Souvenir. From. Birth or after. The Belfort wreck, we decided, to, give the old town trip of their for a. Quick, visit. Seems. Like someone's living here. Not. Sure where. Gets. Us oh. Did. You bring your flashlight. Joanie's, you find. In. Fact all people working here. That's. It. Yeah. Follow drop it's hard, to. Serve. It like rust. After. Our expedition, in the mining, tunnel we headed to Karina has it got already quite late we, thought about staying there but, they can't grant was fairly, packin so you. Decided to head, on, and. Safari only, carries. Two vehicles, we, had to wait a little bit for jontron and. Visited. The historic, graves which, just. At the ferry. We. Still hadn't, isolated. My locker issue we, decided, to make our way towards, Granville, Harbor the, start of climb is trick and see. If we can fix the locker and then, we could commence climbing. Okay. We have to started climbing and. My. Real loca is not working and it's fairly, late, so. We. Decided. We. Would have to drive to Zia. Tuesday. Morning, I don't know how. Early. Very early shitty, night. Super. Windy I thought, my whole stretcher. Is taking, off. Yeah. Unfortunately I, figured out yesterday, doing, a fairly, steep climb that my real loca is not working we had a look we isolate, the issue it's not a leaking, airline it seems to be something internal pitches not good - but I had, a quick chat with tjm, and we. Heading, now towards. Auto Burnie TJ, and Bernie who offer to look at it right away. First. A, LED. Afternoon. 540. We. Spent, the past two, days nearly, in Bernie because. We, discovered, little, insulation, problem with my real lockup and. Dave. Had, an, oil leak. In. One of the bypass. Hoses, it's. His first trip out, so he didn't get a chance really to to, test it before Michigan. You shouldn't do I should put lockers in the week before but anyway. That's what happened so we, went back to Bernie, and. TJ. And Jimmy, from TJ and Bernie helped. Us out greatly they're fixed, my locker insulation, issue and. Also. Help us out with Dave's ranging, once. More we were on our way to do the climb is tricky as. It was again fairly late in the afternoon we, decided to make, a camp at Le Oh God. The. Next day we started fairly. Early in the morning to commence, our drive, towards. Granville hava and start. Climbing. It. Is one of the iconic tracks on the tasmanian, west coast it links trial hava to Granville, Harbour and is around 18 kilometres long even, though it is regarded, as a double black diamond trek with, well modified, vehicles, and experienced. Drivers, the, track can be conquered without, too many problems, however. It, is a remote track without, cell phone coverage so. It is highly recommended to. Undertake, this track only with well-prepared, vehicles, and in, convoy. When. I did climb is the first time three, years ago, the, weather was abysmal, even. Though they had heavy rain the past two days on, today's, trip the weather was perfect.

And Climb is you will traverse a variety of terrain, from, rocky, sections. Over there Chia granite, boulders, to, muddy, stuff and a, few river crossings you. Will also have quite a few rocks, some are quite deep and off camber, to, negotiate. As. Always. The, steepness of the terrain and, how deep the ruts are is very hard to gauge from a video there are certainly some decent. Ruts and, little. Rock steps in there a few off-campus. Sections, but, with correct replacement, these all can be negotiated fairly. Easy. The. Climb is Trek winds, through the mount hems Kirk regional, Reserve Bank, emsco, which, is 7-under 21, metres above sea level was, achieved the first sighted feature of the island of Tasmania by, Abel Tasman on, November, 24th. 1642. We reach one of the main obstacles, the, Granite, Creek Crossing please, had changed quite a bit since I last done. It first of all there is now bypass, bridge so, if you don't feel comfortable doing. This obstacle, you, can bypass it but also some of the big boulders, had been removed out of the waterway. But. We first had a quick stop here for lunch and I decided, to go for a quick swim in Granite Creek which. I have to say was, freezing, cold. And. As you can see here I slightly, screwed up that line my rear wheel just missed a rock by, a few centimeters hence. I scraped my rear bar a little and the passenger, front wheel climbing, then step became, fairly light. I. Thought. I tried the harder line here I knew. I would, end up in a bit of a side angle, but. Yeah, became. A little bit uncomfortable and, I, didn't, want to risk it so I reversed, back and took. The obvious line just straddling, it 36. Degree side angle feels a bit funky. We. Did a little detour, driving. The Federation, mind trick however. I, would not recommend it it's super, overgrown, so, a lot of pinstriping. Going on and probably. 3/4. That meters before the trek ends anyway you, see these very deep ruts which, would. Cause certain, Penner damage, if. You feel like walking it is a reasonably. Short walk. Up there there's, an old mine, site with some old foundations. And, stone. Walls if. You decide to drive there is no turnaround, point you pretty much have to reverse back that very, narrow point for quite a bit. It. Was time to find a camp spot and hence. The weather was very. Very. Good and there was hardly any wind we, decided. To stay, at full bit rock, it's. Certainly not something I would recommend on. The most days due, to the, change of weather condition, and if it's windy there it will be in very unpleasant. Thanks.

Great trip Stefan and stunning filming of a stunning set of land and seascapes. The LC looks the business. How do you think I would manage in a Jeep GC -TD with air suspension/Lt285/65R18 AT/full bash plate u/body protection and rock slider side steps??Looks as if it should be ok-love the tracks. I am missing the convoy & snorkel though lol. & winch. (not so good) Danke sehr & Gute reise.

you should be fine mate just pick good lines and you have no issues

Exceptional Video Stefan! Both in content, music and editing, really stepping up the game. Your 105 looks fantastic, i am regretting getting my 100 IFS, its like a car compared the 105 with lockers :( All you guys on 35's?

Thank you very much, Dave and myself are on 35” and John John is on 33”

If a Rangie rover classic doesnt leak theres no oil in it :)

lol Daves Rangie will be a very reliable truck with the 4BD1T engine but this was his maiden trip after conversion so still a few small teathing issues

Really enjoyed the video, was down there in Jan 2018 and did pretty much these same tracks. When is part 2 coming out, they are new tracks to me and may form part of my next trip to Tassie.

Thanks Mrk, Part 2 will come out in around 2-3 weeks

Breathtaking Landscapes, fantastic Video. Greetings from a Wrangler Driver in Munich

Excellent memories have driven all of these except Federation Mine Track, apparently only a few weeks ago Balfour Track was completely dry. That would be something to see. Glad you enjoyed yourself.

great tracks, next episode will include Lake Cumberland which certainly is interesting

Some great photography there. Good tracks too. Thanks.

thanks Pat

Looks a bit different to GSL took it on a few years ago. The drone shots look incredible, really looking forward to adding those sweeping shots to our videos.

Verrrry nice! Big change in the production quality now; whatever you’ve done is a worthwhile investment; perfect choice in music too!

thanks a lot mate

Yes granite creek is a hard core crossing

Granit Creek is good fun especially if creek has good flow

Have enjoyed your video's for a while now and this one feels like a big step up in production quality. Keep it up, looking forward to more of them.

thanks a lot Matt

Steph the photography is first class I feel as if I’m watching a David Edinburgh documentary we just love it every film you do is superb We can’t wait for part 2

Great video as always! Any update on Mark with the Disco?

I believe he is still debating what to buy :-)

Great Job Stefan. Can't only 2 weeks to go!!! Your route so far seems similar to what we have planned. The way you've set your video has been great and the cinematography is excellent

you will love it mate

amazing video

I have been four wheel driving with John John about 10 years ago out Menai when he put the rodeo motor in his Hilux

Fantastic and great footage we'll put together can't wait to do it

thank you very much, we would greatly appreciate if you could share it with your friends on social media....

You deserve 500k Subscribers

Thank you very much Matt

Wow your videos are becoming really good. I am looking forward to a 4wd trip. I think those tracks might be a bit too hard for the prado. I don't have lockers or a winch. Thanks for sharing

What happened to the LR110 Defender that was always part of your videos' Stefan?

The white one? That was sold a year ago, needed more space in the back when going with Family and it needed to much effort to keep reasonably reliable so settled on a Landcruiser. There are a few vlogs explaining the reasons

My first big 4x4 trip was the west coast of Tassie in 2013. Scored an article in 4wd action for it too. Climies track is my favourite 4wd track ive done and Tassie is definitely A grade adventure. Looking forward to part 2.

Nice one, yea in 2013 4wd Action still did Journalisem not just flogging merchandise. Climies is a great track though I love the scenery

thank you Philip, glad you enjoy the videos

Excellent video, hello from Arizona USA

thank you very much.. and greetings back to the USA

Nice video. We have been to Balfour track as well but unfortunately due to unmodified vehicle we didn't make it. Thanks for letting me know whats going on there.

my pleasure mate

This is a awesome video of tas. We are all enjoying it

You missed the old farm road. When doing the climies track your best doing from trial harbour to Granville harbour then keep following the coast to pieman heads. do both tracks in one

hi, thanks for your comments were is the old farm road? Did Climies last time the other way around and agree is a more interesting drive although it was also nice to go up the Granit Creek

Great stuff again Stefan keep them coming!

Allways enyoy drone shots,thanks .Mods on Cruiser well thought out.

thanks John

Thanks Dave, Part 3 is in the making
