We have 4 4x4 vehicles off to stay at a shack in Grey at the weekend via Lancelin. Does anybody have any up-to-date info on the condition of the beach portion of the trip. One of the vehicles is a Subaru Forester....Thanks.

The beach section between Lancelin and Wedge Island can be very soft in places and depending on the tide some sections can have quite a slope towards the water. I have been along there many times and once we could not get through due to the slope on the beach. Even with 10 psi in the tyres the vehicle would slide sideways. This situation is at it's worst after a winter blow. If you can't drive along the beach, find a track through the dunes and follow the inland road north.
The beach from Wedge to Grey was easy, but you will have to go inland and follow the many tracks about 10 Klm's south of Grey due to the Rocky Headlands.

Hi Steve,
Drove this trip Aussie Day (with the Fires) and also January 11 2003.
The inland road is very bumpy and slow so we got on the beach 1/2 way along the Milatary zone nere a fence and a beacon. A KIA had trouble after wedge on farly flat sand so I pulled him out. Next trip we went on the beach earlier, Toyota/Nissan had no problems but Kia had trouble botoming out around Narrow Neck. Posably due to the driver going too slow. Definitly don't go down the slopy beach from here as it took 3 goes to pull him out at 8psi. Have fun Rox.

G'day Steve,

Three of us drove from Lancelin to Jurien Bay Aust.Day weekend(Mit.Challenger,Suz.Sierra,Niss.Patrol).
made all way along beach aside from L/stone rocky area around grey shacks.Encountered a couple of sticky situations but nothin serious(all part of fun and learning).Ground clearance in some areas may be an issue for Forrester.We were running around 12psi tyre pressure.
My advice would be if unsure and beach gets too soft for your comfort then there are plenty of areas to turn to dune tracks from beach.

We found radio comunication between vehicles was also very handy.

Great trip, Have fun!!!
