 Hey mate been a there a long time ago around the same time and camped at Urchin point in the shack there. Awesome place we had great fishing off the cliffs South of there for a few days before a massive swell hit making it unsafe and unfishable.

Travel up to the North end was slow going and we managed to stake 2 tyres just unlucky I guess. fishing of the West coast was from the cliffs so the usual safety precautions there and the East was all very shallow but well protected from the wind. There's also a few santuary zones around Turtle bay and some of the East coast now which you will have to pay attention to.

Hope you get some good weather and enjoy.

 Feel free to pm for questions. I've only done a couple of trips so no expert. Fuel wise we did a similar trip in a 200 series,(140l tank) made it back to overlander without using spare fuel (we had 40l back up). All depends on your vehicle, weight, how you drive etc). Water, again depends on individual needs but need to be self sufficient. Last year tracks were badly corrogated, we run about 20psi but again depends on you vehicle and load. Lots of people at road pressures wrecking the tracks. Fishing wise, pm or search here.
