WATCH: What trucks are allowed on the Macquarie Pass?
A VIRAL dashcam video of a truck travelling through the Macquarie Pass on the Illawarra Highway through the Macquarie National Park in New South Wales has left many confused as to what vehicles can drive on the winding road.
The video, filmed by truckie Tony Richie, was shared on his own Facebook page before being picked up by the Highway Express Trucking NZ page earlier this week.

The footage shows Tony's truck trying to navigate through the tight passages with other vehicles trying to do the same and trying to get out of the way of the truck.
It also shows a confrontation with a driver of a horse float, who says the truck driver didn't leave him enough room to pass.
The post has attracted more than 250 comments and 94 thousand views, with many stating that the "truck doesn't belong on that road".
Some asked whether it was legal to in fact have trucks on the pass and others defended the driver's right to take his freight where it needed to go.
DJ Higgins said it was a "perfect example of car drivers not understanding trucks at all and the room to move around even without a trailer".
"Too bad that some of the car drivers here need help big time."
To clear up confusion, Big Rigs contacted the Roads and Maritime Services this afternoon to put the issue to rest.
A spokesperson said the Macquarie Pass was restricted to short combination trucks only.
"Short combination trucks are defined as: a truck nominated to haul one trailer where the combination ha six axles or fewer and the maximum total mass that is legally allowable for the combination is 42.5 tonnes or less."
