What’s It Like To Drive Through Eurong Village?
You should remember that these times are an estimate (guide only) from our experiences driving the island.
Many factors will alter the times including:
- Tide times – Even low tides can be higher than usual with large swell, especially windy days.
- Beach Conditions – sometimes the beach can be full of debris, washouts and whoopies.
- Barge availability – May be a huge line up to get on the barge so you will need to wait.
- Traffic – traffic on the beach can be hectic, be aware of speed zones.
- Weather -wind and rain lowers visibility so the drive can be slower.
- Towing – this can make for a slow trip with a heavy load.
Only attempt this drive 2 hours either side of low tide as the beach around Hook Point can be very soft at high tide.
*Calculated using an Average Speed of between 60Km/H
- Calculated at the average speed at 60km/h, taking into considerations of the 40Km zones. These are a guide only and can vary greatly depending on beach and tide conditions as well as the slower speeds required on the inland tracks
