The Light Blue Datsun 4 Wheel Driving Club

The Light Blue Datsun 4 Wheel Driving club just completed one of their toughest weekends tearing up the Mount Waverley Village carpark.

The Mount Waverley carpark is one of the more difficult to reach “get aways” with few casual visitors who actually make the trek all the way in. There are a couple of chicken out areas where drivers have opted to turn back, as the descent into the lower underground carpark is technically difficult, with severe side angles on a very rocky, loose shale and rocky step off.
The closet cafe with decent coffee is a further 5 kilometres deeper into the second level (Yellow section) carpark. With extremely steep sided valleys all around it is very spectacular visually, but the best is yet to come. Ascending to two super challenging climbs both with loose rock and deep erosion channels, the first climb/scrabble/scramble gives you a nice view of the Post Office, but you still need to tackle the descent into the IGA loading bay using the low range low gear. This is definitely rear diff locked and eyes wide open stuff.  This is, without a doubt, one outing that will take some beating.
