Hi there, mate and I just needing some info asap regarding Wilbinga camping. We are thinking of heading there for new years, but don’t have a 4×4, VW Camper Van so where would we camp ect would we be ok, we 2 chicks with no idea lol. Please help us with info :)

Aaron December 30, 2011 at 4:55 PM

Hi Peta,

Honestly, i’d advise not going to Wilbinga for camping unless you have a four wheel drive or are very familiar with the area. Nothing is worse than trying to get a vehicle out of soft sand in the hot weather!

Hey mate!

I’m heading down to Collie in mid April to do some camping, and looking at staying at Honeymoon pools. I’ve read what you had to say about it there, I’ts how we made our choice actually :) and I was wondering if there is any other info or tips about good places to see whilst in the Collie area?

Thanks mate

Aaron January 30, 2012 at 8:29 PM

G’day Erin,

Have you got a four wheel drive? There’s some great tracks around Brunswick and Harvey that you can check out. Harvey Dam is worth a look too. Have a look at Brunswick 4×4 for some more information

Hi Aaron,

Me and a few mates went down to Yaegarup, down near Pemberton this weekend just gone, its absoloutly fantastic and the track is really easy, forest meets huge dunes meets lakes meets awesome beach. highly recommend that you take a trip down there, a bit of a drive and you do need 10psi at some points but totally worth it, great camping too.

Jarod

Aaron March 26, 2012 at 6:36 PM

G’day Jarod,

This is the next place on my list! Is Lake Jasper open again yet? I’ve heard plenty of good things about the Warren River area – I will head down next time I get a chance.

Have a good one

We will be meeting at KFC mundaring at 9 am for a 9:30am leave . If anyone would like to come just sent me a txt on 0450281919. Regards Daniel

Aaron September 14, 2012 at 5:00 PM

G’day Daniel,

I will be working, but no doubt a few people will see the comment. Have an awesome trip. Let me know what the track conditions are like if you can!

Thanks
Aaron

Daniel September 14, 2012 at 9:17 PM

No worries mate will update you on track tomorrow night

Daniel September 15, 2012 at 5:41 AM

Hey aaron,
No worries I will try and post some pics up tonight of how the tracks look

Daniel September 16, 2012 at 4:49 PM

Hey aaron, track was still in good condition few rutted out sections, few of the mud hole r a hell of a lot deeper than last time. I’ll give you a yell next time I’m goin out if your interested.

Regards Daniel

Aaron September 16, 2012 at 6:37 PM

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for the report. I’ve seen some of the mud holes – over roof height on a 100 series Land Cruiser running 36″ tyres and a 6″ lift. You have to be very careful with selecting which ones you go through!

Thanks mate

Aaron

oscar September 18, 2012 at 1:28 PM

Aaron September 18, 2012 at 6:17 PM

Hi Oscar,

What type of vehicle is this? Sounds like it has a massive lift kit!

Aaron

Aaron September 18, 2012 at 6:17 PM

Hi Oscar,

Wilbinga is fairly tame, providing you don’t try too hard on any of the big hill climbs!

Aaron

Azza September 30, 2012 at 9:16 PM

Hey Aaron
This site is great mate!! It’s the perfect site for people like me who are just getting into the spirit of things.
I have just bought a tough 60 series turbo diesel (in pretty good nick for its age) with the intensions of adventure in mind!!
I have never owned a 4×4 nor really been much of an outdoorsy type until now and to tell you the truth, so this site has got heaps of helpfull hints and tips for people starting out.
Cant wait to get out there and learn how to do take the 4wd through different terrains and learn a bit more about fishing and this site just gets me more fired up to get out there and check out some of the places you have recommended.
Keep up the great work and hopefully I dont pester you too much for info and advice!!

Azza

Aaron October 1, 2012 at 2:22 PM

G’day Azza,

Great choice of vehicle. They are great on fuel, great off road and they have plenty of room. You have one of the best engines Toyota ever made. There’s plenty to check out in WA – dive into it!

Troy Purslowe November 12, 2012 at 1:38 PM

am i allowed to freedive gidji in the General Use Zone of the shoalwater marine park? Can loop snare crays there from the shore?

Aaron November 12, 2012 at 3:06 PM

Hi Troy,

Your best bet is to check with the DEC. However, from my knowledge you are allowed to take crays, but not use a gidgee (or speargun). If you head out north of Point Peron though you are allowed to spearfish

Have fun
Aaron

Aaron November 21, 2012 at 5:52 PM

G’day Smidsy,

I’ve been looking into adding a forum recently, but it will take some time!

If you aren’t on the Perth 4×4 forum jump on there, and also 4WD action has plenty of WA members

Dave January 30, 2013 at 5:41 PM

Just wondering where the middle picture of the crystal clear water lapping the beach and the bush in the background was taken? That looks AMAZING! I’m heading to Moore river this weekend for some sand duning down the slopes. REALLY want to know where that image is so I can check it out

Aaron January 31, 2013 at 8:55 PM

Hi Dave,

That photo was taken at the mouth of the estuary in Walpole. I stayed at Coalmine Beach Caravan Park for a few days, and loved it.

Aaron

Mad Mix March 16, 2013 at 3:03 PM

Any suggestions for camping with a caravan in that area over easter

Aaron March 17, 2013 at 6:45 PM

G’day mate,

What area are you speaking of? You will have to get in early if its anywhere near Perth – they fill up super fast!

Aaron

Luke April 14, 2013 at 10:32 AM

Hi Aaron,

Hoping that you could help. Looking at planning an overnight camp out that is suitable for compact 4×4′s. Looking at leaving on a Saturday morning and travelling around 200kms from Perth and setting up camp and then going exploring. Do you have any suggestions? Thinking of doing this for a Christmas in July for our club meeting, and ideas would be helpful.

Thanks

Aaron April 14, 2013 at 2:11 PM

Hi Luke,

These days, 200km doesn’t give you a huge range of opportunities. Dwellingup is great, and there are plenty of places to explore. What sort of four wheel driving are you looking for? Brunswick Junction is another, but both places have some pretty serious four wheel drive tracks. I would be looking at places even further away though!

Aaron

Henry May 14, 2013 at 7:41 AM

Hi Aaron,
Just wondering if you have gone through with putting your part time four wheel drive kit. Me and a mate both have 100 series and have been looking into it. Any help would be appreciated.
Cheers Henry

Aaron May 14, 2013 at 7:10 PM

Hi Henry,

I have; check out http://www.4wdingaustralia.com/4×4/part-time-kit/

Totally recommend it!

Aaron

Henry May 17, 2013 at 6:52 AM

Cheers for that, I’ll definitely be investing in one once I get back from karajini. Getting sick of the back lash.

Jason August 7, 2013 at 6:19 PM

Gday Aaron,
Jason here (previous owner of your old Hilux), any recommendations on a few tracks around Margaret River or nearby ?
I am going down Wednesday next week for a few days. I will be taking the dog so I may have to keep her In the car if National Parks are crossed !

It looks like you enjoy a little more power with the 80, that was the only issue I had with the Hilux.
I have been thinking of upgrading the bt 50 but I may wait a little while as it is pretty heavily modified and has been really good and reliable. With the chip and exhaust its as powerful as the new one anyway. I haven’t got the time to go through the whole process again either.
I have been considering the new Landrover 130 or F250, but as I am still happy with mine the next one will have to be a big improvement.
Keep up the good work and Cheers
Jason

Any Ideas on the tracks would be good

Aaron August 10, 2013 at 6:56 PM

G’day Jason,

Sorry for the late reply mate, I am currently on holidays for 3 weeks, and don’t get much reception! There isn’t much around Margaret River, except for the 3 Bears track, and a small track that runs to the beach near Bushby Road, heading down towards Hamelin Bay. There are a few gravel tracks to explore in between Margaret River and Hamelin Bay, but as I say, nothing major that I know of.

How many km’s have you done with the BT50? Have you thought about a dual cab landcruiser? They start at around 65K brand new, and have more power than you will ever need!

I love the 80; its more comfortable, way more powerful and suits our touring needs a bit better.

Enjoy mate
Aaron

Ty December 23, 2013 at 10:45 AM

Hi, I’m just wondering as I’m going to Coral Bay in January and wondering if someone can recommend any inexperienced or easy tracks around Coral Bay. I have a Hummer H3 with Mickey Thompson All terrain tyres and would like to go to a beach there. Also could someone please recommend any novice tracks in the Wanneroo and north Perth Area.
Thanks

Aaron December 23, 2013 at 7:07 PM

Hey Ty,

There isn’t anything too difficult around Coral bay. If you head north, you can check out Mauds landing and there are a few dune climbs in the area. South is a reasonable beach run, entering from near the boat ramp. You can drive in between Coral Bay and Exmouth too, but watch out for Yardie Creek and the tides. I’d recommend looking at Warroora station too – awesome place.

In regards to north of Perth, you only have a couple of options – Two Rocks/Wilbinga, Gnangara Pines, Julimar and Lancelin.

Some links for you:

Feel free to ask any more questions mate – take care
Aaron

Ty December 27, 2013 at 10:28 PM

Hi, could someone please recommend some easy, fun 4WD track around Kalbarri please and also some details about the tracks :)
Thanks

Aaron December 29, 2013 at 7:24 PM

Hi Ty,

There are a few tracks around, as well as the Murchison offroad park.

You can drive along the Murchison river; just take the main road to the river and keep going onto the dirt tracks. You will eventually get to a station, where you can cross for $50 and explore their property, which runs along the river and right to the coastline.

Lucky Bay is well worth checking out too! http://www.4wdingaustralia.com/travel-western-australia/lucky-bay/

Have fun mate!
Aaron

Ty January 1, 2014 at 1:15 PM

Hi, I’m just wondering theirs a track in coral bay coming off coral bay road. Does anyone know what I should deflate my tyres to in psi?
Thank you and also is that track very difficult?

Lisa Wood February 13, 2014 at 9:26 AM

I so can’t wait to head to Western Australia! Its so going to be the best state to explore…we have our Motorhome but also our Camper Van so that we can go to places that our big bus can’t get to! Will be looking forward to exploring more of our gorgeous Country :)

Aaron Schubert February 14, 2014 at 4:01 PM

G’day Lisa,

When are you coming to WA? It is a great state!

Aaron

Lexi March 28, 2014 at 9:01 AM

Im looking for a motorbike and quad riding areas, do you know of any good places?
Any suggestions would be great
Lexi

Aaron Schubert March 28, 2014 at 5:24 PM

Hey Lexi,

If you are looking for areas close to Perth, have a look at Wilbinga, Thomas Road mud pits, Kwinana offroad area (also on Thomas Road), Ledge Point offroad area and Lancelin.

No doubt some require you to have the vehicle registered for off road use; I don’t know too much about them!

Aaron
