Hey everyone.

I'm looking for some relatively easyish bush tracks/trails that I can take my nissan xtrail through to find decent picnic spots for a nice day with the girlfriend away from the hustle and bustle, in relative isolation.

I've been exploring for a while but most tracks I come across have water corp gates across them.

Anyone have any ideas??

Hi none_obviously,

A starting point is Nick Underwood's "4WD Days out of Perth" book.

A follow up point, get in contact with the Compact 4WD Club of W.A.

Enjoy.

Cheers,
Wayne & Sally.

a good portion of all that nice looking bush in the hills is catchment area in which you may only drive on the few roads or dieback area where entry is prohibited or both
- as said the 4wd days out of perth is good and points out spots around mt observation and east of armadale you can go

2 spots id recomend about 100k from perth are Boyogin nature reserve and lane poole reserve

Hi None,go Great Eastern Hwy to Lakes road house and then Great southern towards York and then take West Talbot Rd.Head sth and you can go east on pony Rd and around that area.Some of it is still water catchment,just follow signs.

Hi , First turn off great southern hwy is badly corragated,second about 3 klm further is ok.you then need to turn left back onto West Talbot, (first intersection).After about 5 klm turn west straight after paddocks,(at helena river)more like a creek.Dam on left further on.Nice picnic spot.Have fun.

Why do you need the isolation?

The usual public places are usually full of tourists, families and kids running around everywhere.

We both work a high stress job and its nice to be away from people for a while in our own company and can just relax.
