Sorry Zapper, just realised that was 18 months ago as well (time escapes me).. Probably built out now, like around near Alkimos.

Try north of Lancelin ,Narrow neck and Dide Point ,I also think there is some spots on the south side of Gilderton , I find if you are fishing and stay the night without setting up the washing and tents (sleep in car ) you can normally get away with it on most areas that have 4x4 tracks99 GU Patrol 4.2 TD

Zapper, there is some nice camping spots at Wilbinga. It is off Wanneroo road north of the Yanchep turn-off. Turn off Wanneroo Rd at Wilbinga grove rest aread and head towards the coast. It is approx 10km from the rest area to the beach. Nice areas to camp behind the dunes if you want to get out of the wind and a great beach to fish, dive or swim.
Wax vehicle well before you go because you can expect a few scratches on the track from the low scrub -but they will polish out.Cheers

Hi All,
I was lead to believe that it was illegal to 4wd anywhere in the city of Joondalup area the rangers drive around the dunes in their Bitsumishi Tritons! And fine People $40 a Tyre that’s why they have tried their hardest to fill in/block all the access points to the beach around the Marmion Ave Area between Burns Beach Road and Quins Area! I may be mistook but if any one else knows more I would like to know too as I live around the area. I think it’s all to do with the dreaded Public Liability Crap!!!!!Keep It On The Rough Stuff

Matt you might be right but all I could find was laws regarding off-road vehicles which states "there are no permitted areas in the City of Joondalup for use of off road vehicles".
The definition of 'off-road vehicle' was "any vehicle not registered under the Road traffic act". That does not include my truck.
I could not find anything else other than laws regarding protection of dune areas and prohibition where sign posted.
There are a lot signs prohibitiong beach access through dunes in the built up areas but there are no signs when you head further north.

Cheers
Allan
