No probs to take nearly anything bar the “Goldwing-Class” across the 10m of slightly deeper sand onto the hardpack at Poutu beach (low tide!!)
and run it up the beach to below the lighthouse. Making it up the dunes is another matter though.

Great spot, well worth the ride…Poutu Point and Kellys Bay are worthwhile stops on the Dargaville-> Poutu stretch.
