Collie 4WD Trip; the Lennard Track, Black Diamond and Brunswick

The Lennard track has been on my list of places to visit for some time, and I’m glad we took the time to do it. The track itself is quite easy, except for a couple of parts that were steep, rutted and slippery. It follows the river with some of the most amazing places to stop you can imagine.

We also called in at Black Diamond Lake afterwards, and did a few little 4WD tracks around the lake. We checked out another fun 4WD track on the way out, closer to Brunswick Junction, and then called it a day. That was enough of a 4wdtrip!

The Lennards track starts just passed the DPAW Honeymoon Pool Camp site, and is behind a gate. If its open, you are good to go. If its closed, please find somewhere else to explore!

    hey guys just after info on how long the track takes and if its easy to follow without any offroad maps. Reason i ask is its a little hard to determine which track to map out on google maps and where it ends which im guessing is Piles rd..?

    Hey mate,

    From memory only around 3 hours with a few stops. You won’t get lost on it – the track only has one way until you pop out at the end. Not sure where it comes out, but you’ll find it no problem!

    Are diff lockers essential?

    Hey Kev,

    Not at all mate. I haven’t done it recently, but it used to be managed by one of the soft roader clubs. A normal 4WD with some decent tyres will see you through just fine. From memory there are only a couple of spots where its challenging, with the rest of it being very easy

    All the best

    We did the intermediate length of this track on the weekend in a stock Subaru Forester with HT tyres at full pressure. Was tricky in spots for us but I think a pretty standard 4×4 shouldn’t have an issue. It finishes at Leonards Rd, turn left and come back down to the road you approach on before River Rd. Not sure where the difficult section ends if you take it.

    Hey Justin,

    Well done; sounds like you had fun too. Cheers for the extra information too.

    All the best
