Information

Wedge Island is a coastal settlement between Lancelin and Cervantes located 160 kilometres north of Perth and is the site of about 360 shacks used as holiday homes to many Perth families. The area represents coastal sand dunes and bush land with beaches accessible to vehicles.

Wedge used to be quite difficult to reach but has recently been 'opened up' by the advent of the new Indian Ocean Drive road. The beach is hard but should be accessed by 4WD vehicles only. Wedge Island is visited by numerous four wheel drive tour buses from the city showing visitors the some of the best coastal stretches of WA.

Like Grey to the north, Wedge was slated to become a managed recreational site (see http://www.dec.wa.gov.au/pdf/nature/management/nambung_np_amend_11-03.pdf) but appears to have successfully the State government plans.
