East Sandy Point

1/ East Sandy Point is a lovely, deserted peninsula in north eastern Tasmania. It is east of Bridport. This area is accessed from Sandy Point Road, which travels west out of Bridport. This gallery shows images taken on a club excursion in the summer of 2014. This image looks to the east of Lodes Beach.

2/ A rough track leads from the end of the Sandy Point Road to Lodes Beach. On this occasion a hazard warning was placed on the road to stop drivers continuing. You would be most foolish to attempt to wade this stream either on foot or in a car. It is much more dangerous, than it looks.

3/ This image shows the final approach over a dune to Lodes Beach. This kind of track is only suitable for AWD vehicles.

4/ We found this interesting, amateur, tree sculpture on Lodes Beach near an area of the beach that was used by juvenile delinquents or "car hoons", as they are called in Tasmania.

5/ This image looks south east down Lodes Beach. The sign warns visitor to care for the shore birds that nest in this area.

6/ This stretch of Lodes Beach looks to the north west towards the Double Sandy Point Reserve. The circular patterns in the sand were recently made my juvenile delinquents or "car hoons". They call this "doing wheelies". Tasmania would be one of the few places in the world, where great beaches are available for doing car driving pranks.
