fuel: Guilderton 19km via Wanneroo rd or 10km by the beach track.
Size: Track length 10km
Time to allow: Day trip or even just a 3-4 hour visit.
The town is a small fishing locality just north of Guilderton and Moore River.
The track along the coast to Guilderton is an easy track to explore.
It's starts from the southern edge of Seabird and ends at the lighthouse just north of Guilderton.
Guilderton Light house.
There are some great views and photographic
scenery to enjoy along the track.
A few tracks peeling off the main track
closer to Guilderton will take you to a few great beach spots, this area is not
well known so you will normally have the place to yourself.
It’s not advised to
drive along the beach as its quite narrow in places, also you can't actually
drive the entire way along the beach as there is a lime stone cliff half way. If
you choose to drive along parts of the beach know the tides.
There is a steep lime stone decent close to the start of the track (at the
northern end), that is a small challenge, if you're not willing to take it on
there is a chicken track around it.
Things to do.
- Explore the scenery along the coast
- Spend the day at the beach
Track conditions and difficulty.
Lime stone hill.
Easy (low range gears, high clearance for the lime
The tracks are mainly soft sand with a few areas of lime stone rock, 14-20 PSI
is recommended for this area.
The tracks are fairly easy with the right tyre pressures, there is one lime
stone hill decent that could prove challenging to some, 1st gear low range
should do the job on this particular hill.
Having a sand flag erected on your
vehicle to warn others of your location would be a good idea, as there are some
sand dunes you will need to drive over towards the southern parts of the track
(closer to Guilderton).
What to bring.
Air compressor, Beach tent or awning, sunscreen,
bush hat, plenty of water, rated recovery gear (shovel is a must as the sand
can be very, very soft at times, snatch strap) & fishing rod.
Best time to go.
All year round.

A 4x4 adventure to Steep Point, the westernmost point of Australia and that alone makes it worth traveling to. The sense of achievement getting to the westernmost point is rewarding...

The Hilux is the people’s vehicle. New owners will be looking to make improvements, and hopefully this Hilux will be an inspiring starting point...
