This footage from 1989 is of the now forbidden beach run from Ussher Point to Captain Billy Landing – Cape York, Queensland.
Allan Whiting (Outback Travel Australia) and Stan Gruzlewski (Adventure Video Productions) headed off to Cape York in 1989 for a journey that neither will ever forget.
The beach run from Ussher Point to Captain Billy Landing has since been banned because too many 4WD adventurers were forced to abandon their 4WDs after becoming hopelessly bogged in the sand on incoming tides.
Allan and Stan agree that this is one of the most difficult and frightening trips they’ve experienced and admit they were very relieved when they arrived safely at Captain Billy Landing.
