Barnsey,
The SA one is Poor Daggudder if you listen to the locals.
Augusta in WA is a much more pleasant place to talk about.

I live in Pt Augusta Disco. Last year I had 3 days off. 1 day I went bushwalking up St Mary's peak in the Flinders. Next day I went 4wding up through the Flinders around Quorn. The next day I went fishing and caught an 80cm Kingfish, and they fight like buggery. All within 2 hours of home.

Go into Pemberton and ask at the tourist bureau how to get to the Warren National Park (about 20 mins out of town to the track)

It's excellent 4 x 4ing, great tracks, beautiful big white sand hills and then down onto the beach for a spot of fishing or a swim.

This is not a maybe destination...DO IT.

Just download the 2 EO treknotes for the area - great 4WD'ing.

Watch the river xings; Warren and Meerup - see recent prev. thread on this plus if you go back up Callcup dunes it's 12psi max.

Cheers.

G'day mate,

We haven't been down there for a few years, but try these.

From Hamelin Bay head north up Caves Rd until you get to Reserve Road on your left (opp Bushby Rd), there is another Reserve Rd further up if you want to take this. If you head down here it will eventually take you out onto Hamelin Bay beach. Be aware that there is no access off the beach at Hamelin Bay CP if heading south. Your only option is to get on and off the beach at the end of Reserve Rd, unless there is now another entry/exit point along the beach somewhere. There are also tracks further north of Reserve Road taking you out to Boranup Beach. Have a look on Google Maps.

Another one is Deepdene which is off Caves Road/Cosy Corner Road, you'll see a track on your left with a bit of a clearing that heads south. Try down there. There is also access I believe from Caves/Deepdene Roads but have always used Cosy Corner Road. Can be some good salmon fishing down here if you're into that.

Not really sure, but there maybe some tracks around the back of the golf course and down near the lighthouse, but I wouldn't think they'd be much.

East of Augusta takes you off to Black Point etc... but we're yet to explore that area. I think there maybe some trek notes on here.

Hope this helps a little.

Regards,
Darren
