Sleaford - wanna pole position
The Eyre Peninsula Four Wheel Drive Club Inc have been given permission from the Lincoln National Parks to adopt a track between Sleaford to Wanna. This track travels through a beautiful but rugged part of the Lincoln National Park and takes in the rugged coast line through sand hills and limestone flats.
The Club has as a service to the Parks offered to maintain the poles which mark the track and have now placed a number on each pole and plotted its position and given this list to the RAA, Police and SES should you break down.
If you give the authorities the nearest pole number this should help them plot your location. to tell a story and let your users know a little more about you.
The track is for four wheel drive vehicles only but allows off-road enthusiasts a chance to see the area in all of its beauty and remoteness.
The Sleaford to Wanna sand dunes 4WD track offers some of the best sand driving experiences on the Eyre Peninsula. Visitors with a 4WD have the oportunity to view massive wind-sculpted sand dunes, pounding surf and rugged limestone cliff along the track and take in the sectacular views of the Lower Eyre Peninsula coastline and the Southern Ocean.
Some sections of the track are narrow, so please be aware of on-coming traffic, especially at dune crests and bends. It is recommended that all vehicles carry a red flag on a pole for better visibility to on-coming traffic. Reduce tyre pressure to avoid becoming bogged, and stay on the designated track, marked by route markers, to protect the fragile coastal ecosystem.
The track offers excellent fishing opportunities. Salmon may be caught from Millers Hole or Salmon Hole where caution must be exercised at the high cliffs overlooking the sea.
Visitors entering from the Sleaford Bay entrance must still oblain an entry permit before entering the park.
Fines apply for failing to purchase and display a valid permit and for driving off the designated track.
