I drove this (and survived) in a hired 4x4. You need a 4x4 to get down the track although it isn’t as treacherous as the Florence Bay track. It was the perfect place to go and see sunset. I arrived about 30 minutes before sunset...More

West Point beach is really off the beaten track, as you have to drive on a narrow bumpy road to get to it, and some hire cars don’t let you drive on it so you need to hire a 4wd. It is well worth it...More

At the end of a very average dirt road, just a collection of houses and a lovely deserted beach. Great views to the North of Townsville, and amazing view at sunset. Nothing there - so take your own everything!

When we visit Maggie we always try to get to West point for a sunset. Take a drink and a snack and savour the view. There's always a few people there but only a "few". Well worth the drive@
