Driving from Two Rocks to Wilbinga

It's been far too long since we last visited Wilbinga, and with the weather looking reasonably good we decided to make a day of it. The plan was to do a bit of 4WDing, fishing and diving.

Dewars Track Two Rocks

Dewars signage

After a short drive (take it easy driving on Dewars; there are lots of tight corners and you'd never be able to react in time if two cars met from opposite directions going quickly) we came to the first dune, which has about 5 different 'tracks' to get to the top.

After driving a bit further, you get to some decent sized dunes which are very difficult to make it up without a lot of momentum. Even the big 200 series twin turbo V8 didn't get up, although it was awfully close!

We spent a while looking for somewhere suitable for diving, and set up. We ended up with 5 crays (all fairly small!), but had a good time diving and exploring the area.

The Bullsbrook fire was completely out of control, and the smoke was unreal. We are truly sorry for any damaged property, and a massive thanks goes to everyone involved in trying to put it out!

About Two Rocks Dewars Track

To get to the start of this track, click here. It starts on the corner of Damepattie and Sovereign Drive. Please drive up the track about 50 metres and pull off to deflate your tyres. The locals are sick of 4WD's coming and going at all hours of the day, and parking on the main street. Respect those who live there, and the track is much more likely to stay open.

This track takes you through a number of dunes, and gives you plenty of places to jump on the beach.

Two Rocks to Wilbinga Beach

The beach from Two Rocks to Wilbinga can be very soft, and has a number of sections that are washed away. Where possible, take the lower track (unless there is plenty of room up the top). I've seen too many accidents where people have slid off the top track and either rolled their vehicle, or come very close. We saw a Triton being dragged back to civilisation when we were up there that had gone over.

I'd suggest 15 - 18 PSI is the ideal starting pressure for this beach. If you are struggling, let the tyres down to 12 PSI, and see the difference.

Rubbish

I was fairly impressed to see very little rubbish left behind (asides from a few car bodies, and someones filthy rubbish at the end of Wilbinga drive). If you leave rubbish, expect to be photographed and reported by the majority of 4WDers who don't tolerate this behaviour. You are responsible for keeping this place open; lets look after it.

Overall

For those in the northern suburbs, this is a very popular trip. It's a bit of a hike for those in the southern suburbs, but still the closest place to Perth where there is decent dune driving and beach driving. It's a cracker spot, and one that we want to keep open; lets keep it in good condition.
