It is advised that if you have booked a holiday with any club house that you book your barge transport at the same time. Take note of the tide times when arriving on and departing from the Island. Best to travel the beaches half up to half down to low tide. Deflate all tyres to approximately 18Ib. Lock all hubs and engage 4WD once you are on the barge. Cross all small creeks at the waters edge. If you do not know the main creek up near yellow patch, well do not try and cross it! take the inland track. Make sure you know where the green zones are so you know where you can fish. Always adhear to the fisheries legal length requirements.
