Mundaring power line track.

The Toyota Land Cruiser at Mundaring power line track.

Distance from Perth: Just over 40 km east of Perth city centre on Great Eastern Highway.

4x4 off road track conditions and difficulty:
The track is mainly clay and rock which is rutted, steep, and can be very dangerous when wet.
If you have never been off road before DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS TRACK.

The track starts near Sawyers Tavern in Sawyer Valley, it's an actual power line track managed by Western Power but open to the 4WD community.

Mundaring power line track is not for the faint hearted, however you don't need a monster truck to survive the track. For every hardcore challenge there is a chicken track, but not all the chicken tracks are easy...

4x4 off road driving along the Powerline track during the day is one thing but 4 wheel driving the same Powerline track at night is like 4WDing on a different planet!

Distance from Perth: Approximately 70km north via Wanneroo Rd

Wilbinga is full of nice beaches and lookouts, and it’s the closest area to Perth where you can go beach driving.

One of the best things about this area is, that although many people do venture to Wilbinga; most of the time you will have a section of the beach to yourself with no one else in sight...



Lancelin

Lancelin WA

Distance from Perth: 127 km north of Perth via Marmion Road / Indian Ocean Drive or Wanneroo Road.

Lancelin is a small fishing town which also attracts tourists but for us; it’s all about the dune driving! Population is 600 and in the holidays, it booms to well over 2000.

Short list of things to do:

4x4 off road, quad bike riding, dirt bike riding, surfing, kite surfing, spending the day at the beach, and sand boarding in the dunes...

One of the most unique places you will see within 300km from Perth, placed in The Nambung National Park. The Pinnacles is a yellowish sandy desert filled with scattered limestone pinnacles. They look a little like honeycomb tree trunks!

It’s quite a bizarre sight best enjoyed around sunset for the ambience and vibrant colours. Worth a visit for sure!

Collie, Wellington National Park.

Hill claiming at Collie, Wellington State Forrest

Distance from Perth: 185km via Forrest Hwy

Collie is the closest town to Wellington National Park, so when people mention the Lennard track they think of Collie and not Wellington National Park. The Wellington dam sits within this national park, and the Lennard track (which is 4WD and day use only) is in here too.

Outside of the Lennard track, you will find plenty more challenging tracks in the area. One of them is a fire break track not far from the end of the Lennard track. Parts of this fire break track are very fun and challenging.

The Wellington dam is also worth visiting if you’re in the area. It's a great place to take a few photos and stretch your legs for a while...
