Can you explain why you say that please? It shows on Google Earth and on my Natmap 250k map? Have you tried to find it on the ground? Current info is always useful.

Yes - I drove past the point on 3 occasions on separate days - once heading east to Black Point (looking for it to return inland when I left Black Point) and twice the next day - once heading west to find it (assuming I'd missed it the previous day) and then (having turned around 5km later) heading east again. Definitely nothing joins at the designated point

The way inland (also called Black Point track road) is 50m south of the junction where the road returns from Black Point itself. If you go up that road you meet a steel padlocked gate on a sandy rise after about 2km. 4wd-ers have chainsawed large logs on the righ hand side of the gate leaving a tight track round the gate - too tight for my 200 and Tvan

I checked this all with other (local) drivers - who say that there have been a lot of road closures around Black Point In recent years - and roads have overgrown as a result

Thanks for the update Glynn, we'll ensure to get that removed in EOTopo 2017 which we are working on now. Yes there have been a few fires and roads were closed for a long time so it would seem it's gone for good then.

Hi Glynn,
On my map the Black Point area is part of D'Entrecasteaux National Park, maybe the local office or ranger can help?

Hy Glynn. think you will find that milyeanup turns into woodarburrup and goes past the turn off to black point and onto lake jasper. At the turn off south to black point is actually the black point road heading more or less north back to the hyw. That road gets very wet and may have been still closed given the amount of traffic going in the woodarburrup road past white point and on to black point.

Cheers Graeme.

As already suggested Black Point Rd is a season track. It goes through a swamp and I read somewhere that it often only opens Dec/Jan. Only ever been there in Jan and the boomgates were open, but even then the swamp section was still damp. Black Point Rd is definitely the trailer friendly way of the 3 roads.
Info here, see the "Getting there" tab:DPAW Black Point

Just had a look at the "place". That section of track was closed when we were there. The NE end had a boom gate across it, not sure about the SW end. Think it is one of the many "Management Only" sections.
