Perth 4wd tracks

 Perth 4wd tracks

To find out some of the 4wd Tracks in Perth that are accessible, have a look at Perth 4wd.

The picture above was taken a few years ago, in an area where your 4wd vehicles were still permitted. Now however, that has been shut off. This is usually because of people dumping rubbish or making new tracks. As a result, you now have to drive out to the Mundaring Powerlines Track or go to Brunswick 4×4 for your better four wheel driving. As long as you look after these tracks they will stay open.

Would you be able to let me know where a good challenging track would be close to Perth thanks.

Hi Matt,

Mundaring should do the trick, but it is quite challenging in the wet. What vehicle do you drive?

Hi, we have subaru outback 2010, 2.0D. Wondering which track that we can try, since it’s not a 4wd car, and we only drive it on normal road. Any recommendation? Thanks :)

Hi Indi,

The main issue you will have is clearance. Have you tried it in sand? I would have thought with the right tyre pressures it would go OK on most beaches. White Hills, Wilbinga, Lancelin, Wedge Island and Dwellingup would be a start. You could even do parts of the Mundaring Powerlines Track, but just watch for any bigger rocks or ruts that are likely to damage the vehicle. The Logue Brook to Harvey Track should be easily done too.I’d also suggest buying the 4×4 Days out of Perth book – well worth it. There are a number of trips in the book for ‘soft roaders’.

Have fun,
Aaron

Thanks buddy! I will buy the book and also will look at the tracks that you gave. Much appreciated. Cheers.

Hi Josh,

That’s the problem with buying a nice fourby – you have to be careful with it!

Dwellingup has some great camping and fresh water fishing, as well as a whole heap of other activities you can do. Also, check out Perth 4WD Tracks

Take it easy

Hi there,

We have recently moved to WA from NSW and just bought a Toyota Landcruiser with all the camping gear.

We want to meet likeminded “amateurs/newbies” to the scene that want to get away for weekends etc around WA.

Most of the 4WD clubs we have come across are pretty full-on to join which is a bit daunting for us at this early stage. We are only learning and don’t want to ‘tread on the toes’ of the experts.

Can you recommend anyone to contact? Any clubs or even forums to get on to get started?

Cheers, Shaal

Hi Shaal,

Jump on the Perth 4×4 forum; they regularly do trips. Also, 4WD Action has lots of Perth members who would be willing to take you out. Just take it easy; get the right recovery gear, use the right tyre pressures and don’t attempt anything you aren’t comfortable with!

Best of luck
Aaron

Hi I got a 2010 Rav4. I did the dunes in Lancelin with it and I think it did alright.
Do you think I would be able to do the Mundaring Power lines track with it?
Thanks.

Aaron December 24, 2012 at 12:07 PM

G’day John,

You should be able to do most of it, just watch out for big rocks. I’m not exactly sure how much clearance they have, but that will probably be the biggest issue. If you are confident you should be able to do most of the track without any issues.

hi
i have a stock mazda bravo 4×4 and im pretty keen to go to the mundaring powerline track
do you think it would make it
cheers ashton

Aaron March 15, 2013 at 6:39 PM

Hi Ashton,

I’m not exactly sure of what condition it is at the moment. However, with the recent rain it could be slippery in places. Go with another vehicle, take it carefully and don’t attempt anything you are unsure about and you will have a great time.

Enjoy mate
Aaron
