Which is Australia’s most difficult 4WD track?

Ellis Track, Wesburn, Victoria

The votes are in and it seems Ellis Track in Wesburn, Victoria has been voted Australia’s most difficult 4WD track by the BillyGoat 4WD Community.

With massive boulders, highly uneven terrain and ruts as deep as your hips, it is no wonder why Ellis Track has gained a reputation for being the hairiest track in Aus. The combination of mud and orange clay makes the track slippery and difficult to overcome. Gaining traction over the boulders can test even the most seasoned veterans among us. Add some rainfall to the mix and you have yourself a white knuckle, hair raising adventure.
