You can’t really appreciate how good a properly functioning brake pedal feels until the day you press it and it just goes straight to the floor with no resistance. Unfortunately brake line failures aren’t as rare as we’d like them to be; off-road driving is pretty tough on vehicle systems, and your brake lines are no exception.

Brakes work through a sealed hydraulic system. The whole system is filled with fluid, and when you push the pedal more fluid is forced into it from a reservoir. That increases the pressure and operates the brake pads (or shoes, if you have drum brakes).

Modern engines have some advanced technology built in, which is why they’re so efficient, responsive and powerful. They also still depend on plenty of older, less sophisticated little gadgets though, and one of the most vital ones is the thermostat.

A thermostat is a device that tries to keep a system running at a specific temperature. They have all sorts of uses – there’s probably one on your heating system at home – but they’re really important in engines.

While Moreton Island is home to over 420km of unsealed trails much of Moreton Islands beach driving is limited by the tides, If you want to make the most of seeing the sights ensure that you are prepared to head out as soon as the tides permit. We recommend 2 hours either side of low tide.
While there is minimal inland tracks to get your around at high tide to see the main sights the tracks themselves were a sight to be seen. Beautiful wild flowers grow in abundance and tracks cut through hills of coloured sands.
