Apart from State Highway 75, roads on the peninsula are secondary routes, and they range from sealed, but a bit narrow, to unsealed, and sometimes quite rough, to four-wheel-drive tracks. However, if you’re confident taking the roads less well travelled they’ll take you to through some amazing scenery, and to some beautiful spots. Four-wheel-drive is preferable on the unsealed roads, although many are negotiable in a conventional vehicle during the summer months.
If you’re familiar with driving on steep roads, you won’t feel out of place on the Peninsula. If not, remember the following. Drive cautiously, and at a speed you’re comfortable with. Allow drivers behind you to pass when it’s convenient to do so. Don’t drive too closely to the edge of the roads, where there are steep drop-offs. When descending long hills, engage a low gear to assist your braking, and prevent brakes over-heating. Drive according to the weather conditions.
