Hi all, Just wondering if anyone has driven there of late. I am planning our WA trip next year and would like to like Steep Point as the most Western Point on the Aussie mainland, however I fear that the last section may be just to sandy. We have a 4WD of course. Are there any tours that would be available to take if we can not make the drive ourselves. Appreciate any comments or suggestions. Thanks all in advance and safe travels to all. Cheers Greg & Di

Hi Greg & Dianne,
Not recently..... about 2 years ago we stayed @ Whalebone Bay (camps 7 WA 342) allow a full day (return) to get to Steep Point & to soak in the experience...make sure you sign the visitors book & hopefully the weather is good on the day u decide to go there.....enjoy


Yes there is some sand to negotiate but nothing too hard..... narrow in places...I didn't even have to lower my tyre pressures (from memory)
Insanity doesnt run in my family.... it gallops!

Greg & Di,
We did it last year and it is well worth the drive. A fair bit of corrugations on the way in and a couple of sandy dunes. A high clearance 4wd would be better. Fisherman were towing trailers to their campsites. There is a loop road that takes in Steep Point and continues on via the Blow Holes at Thunder Bay and back to the main road in. We met a family in a new Prado at the Steep Point sign. They had already been bogged to the axles and had to dig out. They were not prepared to do the loop on their own and asked if we could travel together, which we did. There were a few good angles on the loop track and you may get a wheel in the air. Carry a bit of recovery gear, definitely a shovel. I didn't have any trouble in my 80 series. We were staying at Nanga Bay resort in a our caravan and it was a 370km round trip.

Enjoy the Trip

Bill
