Track length:

Once you add up crossing the dunes, beach stops and winding sand tracks its ends up about 20+ kms, it may not seem very long but going through the dunes and taking time exploring the area will take up the entire day and is well worth it.

Wedge Island and Grey are both tin shack community's, it has this post-apocalyptic feel about it while navigating through the shacks to the Wedge Island sand dunes.

The shacks are off limits!

Wedge Island Adventure:

If you want a real adventure but only have a few days Wedge to Grey will give you that.

Playing around in the dunes is one thing but having to find your way across them to the tracks is a whole other story, Adventure!

You don't know what's over the next sand dune which is just part of the fun.

The adventure starts just beyond the shacks, it can be a bit confusing navigating though the shacks but keep straight on favouring the eastern (right) side tracks heading north.

Once past the shacks the first sand dune will be right in front of you.
This is where you need to air down.

If you like adventure then head through the dunes until you reach the far north western side and then find the access track to the beach, once on the beach travel 250-500m north along the beach and a few tracks will appear on the right which take you back into the dunes again.

The sand dunes are different to Lancelin in regards to shape and size due to different winds and being close to the beach.

The sand dunes are not as high however the amount of dunes makes for a great experience and heaps of fun.

Once the second sand dune formation has come to an end the remainder of the trip is along sand tracks, driving along the beach the entire way is not possible due to the lime stone cliffs which block the beach so keep to the coastal sand tracks which run right next to the beach anyway.

Access to the beach by 4WD is possible most of the way along the coast as there are tracks heading down; just make sure you can get back up.

Track conditions and difficulty: 

Easy to Medium.

The sand dunes always vary as they can change shape overnight.

Patches of very soft sand is always around somewhere in the dunes so bogging the vehicle is all ways possible.

The sand tracks have rocky sections and expect a bit of light pin striping from the bushes along the way, other than that the tracks are easy to drive and easy to navigate.



Best Time to Go:

Anytime of the year, providing it’s not raining too much.
