Hi everyone, Does anyone know of some places to go 4wding near or around Perth. Such as 4wd areas open to the public. I am not sure if the Gnangarra pines area is a 4wd area, I know it is a motorbike area. I am looking for area's for 4wd.

Thanks,

Rob

Rob, Grab the book/mag - 4wd day trips out of Perth by Western Four Wheel Driver or I think the other one is weekends out of Perth. All the details you need.

Cheers

Mark

There are stacks of places. But they are shrinking rapidly. There is an offroad place in Kwinana near the end of Thomas Road. Yes the pines are good for 4wd's, Lancilen, Sawyer's Valley powerline Trek (listed on this site)and many more. Just treat them right and we might actually be able to use them for a little longer!

Alkimos is a beach in between Quinns Rock and Yanchep where there is lots of steep sand dunes and beach driving and fishing.The entrance at the Quinns end is blocked off because of the housing development but you can still enter through Pippindinny rd off Wanneroo rd.You wil have to let your tyres down for the sand and be wary of the tides as the beach can get quite narrow sometimes.

Mundaring has a lot of tracks off the road into the dam including the Perth to Kalgoorlie pipeline trail.

Preston beach south of Mandurah also has a beach entrance for 4x4 off the road to Bunbury

Alkimos beach is a big no no, Ranger will give you a big fine IF he catches you, No 4wding on beaches in the shire of Wanneroo .Ross you may do it all the time but that does not make it right.

Rob,

In addition to the above, check out the trek notes on this ExplorOz site for trips such as the powerline trek from Mundaring to York and others.

Thanks for all the advice, I do have a copy of the 4wd days out of perth and the 4wd weekends too. I will have to check with the rangers about Nangarra pines. I knew Alkimos was out and i think some tracks around Mundaring are also closed to vehicles.

Just to change the subject, if your interested i have some pics on a photo page at Yahoo, some from up north and down south and from trips east, take a look .. http://au.f1.pg.photos.yahoo.com/rob_duncan66 , one day i will make a web page with all my travels on it.

see ya out there,

Rob
