4WD Tracks less than 150km from Perth
- Mundaring Hills Climb
Approximately 20 km long is the Mundaring Hills where 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. However, you can enjoy this drive at any time of the year.
Note: It can be dusty in 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 path can be difficult and pretty slippery. Do not attempt to drive in the creek bed in winter, or you will get bogged. The Lakes Road House (also fuel stop) is an excellent place to start your four-wheel-drive camper rental adventure.
The trail begins 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 keeping your tyre PIS at 16-20 to keep traction and prevent unnecessary track damage.
- Dwelling up 4WD Track
It is a 126km 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 a waterfall and a big open swimming pool whereby you can have fun canoeing and rafting in winter.
This track may take more than 7 hours to complete with stops at some 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.
