    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 :)

  • http://www.4wdingaustralia.com Aaron

    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

  • http://www.4wdingaustralia.com Aaron

    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.

    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

    Hey mate me and a bunch of mate are thinking of going to mundaring powerlines this Saturday 15/9/2012 and was wondering if anyone else would like to come along. 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

  • http://www.4wdingaustralia.com Aaron

    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

    No worries mate will update you on track tomorrow night

  • Daniel

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

  • Daniel

    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

  • http://www.4wdingaustralia.com Aaron

    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

  • oscar

  • http://www.4wdingaustralia.com Aaron

    Hi Oscar,

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

    Aaron

  • http://www.4wdingaustralia.com Aaron

    Hi Oscar,

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

  • Azza

    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

  • http://www.4wdingaustralia.com Aaron

    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

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

  • http://www.4wdingaustralia.com Aaron

    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

    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

    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

  • http://www.4wdingaustralia.com Aaron

    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

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

  • http://www.4wdingaustralia.com Aaron

    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

  • http://www.fawdcwa.com Luke

    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

  • http://www.4wdingaustralia.com Aaron

    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

    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

  • http://www.4wdingaustralia.com Aaron

    Hi Henry,

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

    Totally recommend it!

    Aaron

  • Henry

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

  • Jason

    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

  • http://www.4wdingaustralia.com Aaron

    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

    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

  • http://www.4wdingaustralia.com Aaron

    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:

  • Ty

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

  • http://www.4wdingaustralia.com Aaron

    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!

    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?

  • http://www.newlifeontheroad.com/ Lisa Wood

    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 :)

  • http://www.4wdingaustralia.com Aaron Schubert

    G’day Lisa,

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

    Aaron

  • Lexi

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

  • http://www.4wdingaustralia.com Aaron Schubert

    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!
