After finding out a huge number of 4WD tracks were closed in the Grampians, I mapped out what was open, and we planned a day out from Boreang Campground. The last track that I’d chosen was Harrop, which reads 4WD only, with sand and gravel.
Where is the Harrop Track?
This 4WD track starts off near Buandik campground, and works its way to Glenelg River Road.
How long does it take?
We did the track from Goat road in about 30 minutes, with no real issues.
How difficult is the Harrop Track?
Honestly, I’m not sure why this is classed as a 4WD track. It’s a really, really good condition gravel road (at least it was when we went through in February 2023), with only a few minor pot holes near the bridges, and lots of wildlife to slow down on.
In the condition it was in, I would happily drive a Toyota Corolla down it, and it was even better than parts of the Glenelg River Road, which is far more well used.
Is it worth doing?
The Harrop Track has some nice scenery, and you drive over a couple of water sources, but its certainly not going to get the heartbeat racing.
We had fun on it, but were disappointed it didn’t involve any actual 4WDing, and much preferred Goat Track that we had just come off!
