Waroona and Dwellingup 4WD Tracks

After crossing off a number of jobs that needed to be done on the 80, I was itching to hit the dirt again. We picked Waroona Dam and Dwellingup to explore, and left Perth at 7:30AM.

Waroona Dam is only an hour and a half away from Perth, and is popular for 4WDing, freshwater fishing and skiing. We met at Waroona Bakery, and after a quick bite hit the dam and let the tyres down.

After deflating the tyres, we headed off around the dam. It wasn’t long until we got to the first set of mud holes, and I idled into one that I thought would be fairly simple.

The car sunk down instantly, and even with the lockers on had zero traction. A quick snatch out backwards and we were on the way again. Next, Ash gave another run a go, and managed to get through after giving it a second shot. Clayton was up, and sunk down very quickly

As the day was getting on, we headed towards Dwellingup, to find a place to stop for lunch and wet a line. You can cut right through to Nanga brook road, which is a fantastic shortcut.

We had an awesome day exploring the tracks, and found a number of new places to visit. We are lucky to have so many amazing places close to Perth.
