We visited Toolinna Cove and Point Culver and then travelled down through the Cape Arid National Park to Israelite Bay in late March and encountered plenty of overgrown tracks. There obviously has been fires there a few years ago and the mallee and banksia regrowth along some of the tracks is amazing in places. Like driving through the hedgerows in Britain only much much narrower. I don't know about further east. If you are worried about paint scratches I'd be investing in some of the stuff Mick O mentions a few posts down

Hi tuck,
Yes the track is passable but if you don't want to travel along overgrown tracks with scratchy bushes then this trip isn't for you.

Did Esperance to Madura last October. Followed the OTL from the start of the Baxter Cliffs. Very tight in places. Had to get out of the car at one stage to look for the track. It was three feet infornt of my Car!

Didnt get one scratch on the car that didnt buff out.
