* Helpful Travel Tips For Gravel Roads

  • Look well ahead on the road for possible trouble spots, eg water can pool on the road after heavy rain in some locations, but generally is well drained.
  • Watch for rising dust in the distance as this generally indicates other vehicle using the road too.
  • Drive to the conditions at the time.
  • Enjoy your surrounds and do not speed, slow down on bends and crests.
  • Corrugations can cause a vehicle to slide.
  • Stay off the edge of the road as they often soft and will drag your vehicle off the road.
  • When a section of road is covered by water it is generally safest to pass through the centre of the road as it generally the hardest section of the road and you are less likely to get your vehicle bogged.
