I'm hoping someone's knowledge can help me out.

Planning this year's Kimberly trip. Highways and Backroads WA shows a 4wd track from Cape Bertholet to Beagle Bay. The Hema map doesn't show the track at all.

Is it possible to drive this track?
Any help will be appreciated,

Steve

I checked my map of the area and the track from Beaglr Bay does not join up with the Cape. There is a gap of about 7.2k.

Gooday Steve : Have you had a look on google earth .

Are you going form beagle bay to the cape ?... earth shows track out that way .
it also look like a track to cape bertholet heading up the coast from south get vague .....much like around the cape

I also had a look on garmin aus topo maps not very clear ...but there are tracks.

You also could get maps from osm ...

Is there an attraction apart from the adventure ?

.P.S how good is your navigation...



cheers nick

Hi Nick,

I had a look on 4x4 Earth. They showed the track finishing around Cape Bertholet.

I've found Google Earth shows old tracks that aren't always possible to follow.

The main attraction is the adventure, going where not many others go and a bit of a challenge.

I usually leave the navigating up to the missus, until we get lost and then I make a quiet suggestion sometimes. We always end up somewhere, even if we get lost...

We're heading from Broome to Cape Leveque mid August. We plan on taking the track to Derby from Beagle Bay, by way of Fraser River on the way back . That one looks like it's definitely a goer.

We still just use paper maps which have served us well. One of our mates coming has the Hema maps on an Ipad2. It worked well in the Vic High Country over Christmas but we still use it as a back up for tracks we've missed.

What is the osm that we could get maps from?

Hoo roo,
Steve

Thanks again.

The iPad with Wi-Fi + 3G has GPS, I'm pretty sure.
Through the High Country my mates was as good as any other GPS, whether we were at the top of a mountain or in the deepest valley.

I'll do some Googling.
