Four Wheel Driving At Ledge Point

A few kilometres south of Lancelin and one-and-a-half hours’ drive north of Perth is Ledge Point, the quieter alternative to Lancelin.

Details

Description

You can 4WD south along the beach or explore the 4WD tracks (and sand dunes) of Lancelin to your north.

The sand around here can get quite soft, so make sure you lower your tyre pressure down to a suitable PSI. Be careful around some of the heads of the beach where the land comes closer to the ocean, as it can get quite boggy and steep.

If you’ve enjoyed Lancelin before, this could be a great sea-change, giving you the chance to explore new coastline and fish in a quieter location. For an overnight stay you have the choice of a Big 4 caravan park, as well as beachfront villas and houses suitable for families.

Head up Indian Ocean Drive until you reach Ledge Point Road, which will take you into the town centre. Smaller roads will lead you down to the beach.

Four Wheel Driving At Wilbinga

North of the city and just past Two Rocks is a 4WD playground featuring multiple off-road tracks with access to the coast.

Details

Description

About an hour from Perth, it is the closest 4WD location north of the city. It is also a popular motorbiking spot, so do look out for the smaller vehicles around you.

Do not attempt this beach if it's your first four-wheel drive experience as the tracks can be quite soft and hilly. However, once you have a few 4WD trips under your belt, head up the coast to experience the beautiful bush tracks and ocean views Wilbinga has to offer.

An important rule to take note of is that 4W driving in the City of Wanneroo is strictly banned, so make sure you stay north of Two Rocks and keep in the Wilbinga area. If you’re into fishing, don’t forget your rod, as this is also a great spot to throw out your line.

Head up Indian Ocean Drive and turn onto Wilbinga Road, in the direction of the coast. If you’re coming from the city, this is just past Military Road. A few kilometres down you will come across an area to let your tyres down before you adventure further.
