Hi All

Being relatively new to the South Perth region I am keen to find some (local) spots for some exploring, Camping and 4wdriving, ( yes i was lucky enough to Drive from Darwin to Perth Via the Kimberly, Broome, west coast etc) I have been through and seen some of the Harvey Dam area, Sues bridge and Myllup beach but am looking for more spots, I live in South Yunderup and having come from Darwin I love the Outdoors. Any Suggestions? Also keen to join a local 4x4 club but Have had no luck as they all seem to have no Vacancies, I have a very Capable hilux with all the mod cons and recovery gear. Anyway Any ideas and suggestions are much appreciated.

Cheers
Adam

Hey Adam.
It's a great part of this country, and a great place to explore, get your self a few maps and books on the area, and go for a drive.
We have been over there twice, my wife and I both have family over that way, great places to explore.
My son moved to Perth a few years ago, I flew over one Christmas, couple of swags it the back of his navara and off we went, made our way to cape LeGrand , 3 weeks. Had a ball.
Wife n I drove from near Canberra, left here 1st of March, spent 8 weeks driving to Perth and back, via eyre peninsula and the south west corner.. Loved it.. Enjoy. Cheers Odog

Hi Adam,

There is a series of soft cover books called 4WD Days/Weekends out of Perth, most newsagents have them and the books have some good information on where to go for day and weekend trips in and around the Perth area and districts etc.

Hope this helps

Howard

Hi Adam,

It seems strange that clubs you have contacted have no vacancies?

However, try contacting......

Peel 4WD Club - Peel
Rockingham 4WD Club - Rockingham
Down South 4WD Club - e-mail
Southwest 4WD Club - Southwest

As mentioned, the 4WD Days out of Perth, 4WD Weekends out of Perth and the 4WD Days on the South Coast of WA books, are a good place to start.

Enjoy.
Cheers,
Wayne & Sally.

Adam around Lane Pool Reserve tracks everywhere some of the old "Forms" which are the old train lines used to bring in timber they are minus the tracks are good to travel on so are the Fire lines. Suggest getting a few topo maps and good mapping software, anywhere to the east of Brunswick Junction some wild tracks in there. White cliffs to Preston beach but watch it in winter some of the storms take the beach away. Find Scarp road and take a drive along it cuts in and out along the Darling Scarp, some good tracks along it.
