4WD Tracks within 150 km out of Perth
Mundaring Hills Climb
Approximately 20 km long, the Mundaring Hills, a 4x4 track can easily be completed in half a day. You can combine this track with the Powerline Track to make it a day trip.
The Mundaring Hills track starts at just 40 km east of Perth centre on the Great Eastern Highway. You can start near Sawyers Tavern in Sawyer Valley. This is a power line track managed by Western Power but is open to the 4WD community.
Mainly clay and rock, this four-wheel-drive track is steep and very dangerous when wet. Please, do not attempt this climb if you have never been off- road driving before. You can enjoy this drive at any time of the year.
Note: Can be dusty is summer and slippery in winter so please drive to conditions and keep a safe distance.
Jeep Kraft Trail
It is a 4x4 track, 90 km away from Perth city, and is a relatively tamed track in summer. However, in winter the track can be difficult and pretty slippery. Do not attempt to drive in the creek bed in winter, or you will get bogged.
A good place to start your four-wheel-drive camper rental adventure is the Lakes Road House (also fuel stop). The trail starts from the blacktop at a fire break trail right next to a farm. The track then snakes its way up and down a few hills with numerous tight turns. Further, you will find some medium to large rock steps, which will give your 4x4 rental vehicle suspension some serious workout. We suggest you keep your tyre psi at 16-20 to keep traction and to prevent unnecessary track damage.
Dwelling up 4WD Track
It is a 126 km to the south of Perth, just a short, one and a half hour drive to Lane Poole Reserve. The 69km track through gravel roads and bush tracks is an easy crossing in summer but can be a challenge during a wet winter. You will find campsites along the eastern side of the river coupled with waterfall and a big open swimming pool, and you can have fun canoeing and rafting in winter.
This track may take more than 7 hours to complete with stops at a number of locations along the river. If you have sufficient time, then it is highly recommended that you spend a night at one of the DEC campsites.
You will find deep ruts along the way and plenty of steep hill climbs/descents. We recommend four-wheel-drives with at least 2-inch lifts for this track.
Wilbinga – 4WD beach driving
From Perth, head towards the north in your 4x4 camper rental and travel approx. 70 km along the Wanneroo Road. The beach is between Two Rocks and Guilderton (closest area to Perth where you can go beach driving) and a great place for fishing.
Wilbinga consists of mainly sand tracks with lots of beach runs and sand dunes. You will find a few scattered rocky limestone sections, so make sure you have enough ground clearance. There are three big sand dune areas- fun for practising your sand skills and learn about your 4x4’s capabilities. There are also several other steep challenging dunes. We suggest you practice with the smaller dunes if you are new to this. 14-20 PSI is recommended for this area.
The area can be busy especially, on the weekends, so it is a good idea to have sand flags erected on your vehicle to warn others of your proximity.
