    Tracks in WA - parks if you will

    seeing as this section is such a lonely place, I thought it'd be good to try and lure in some WA members to post where they have been and what they'd rate the adventure

    media would be good too, if you have some, I'd lead by example but that would need to wait till I'm home


    Being down in Mandurah I've been exploring out around Dwellingup a few times, its a popular area.
    Starting around here - google.maps.link - you can explore the hills and head out to some interesting locations. The point I've mapped is, I'm pretty sure, one of the hardest up hill runs in the area, I haven't seen a single fourbie make it up the dug out path up the hill. You'll know it when you see it.

    Most people know about that though, and its been a while since I was out finding more interesting tracks in the area so I won't try and locate all of them in Dwellingup

    There is a good track though, one you can use on your way to Dwellingup even, off Napier rd. Have a look on google.maps - alas my photos of last time I was up there aren't with me at work.
    Its a bit of fun, has a few challenges, and you can just go explore up through the hills and eventually come out near Dwellingup.

    So, does anyone have any new places that we should know about? or photos from some of the Dwellingup adventures? would be good to see something from WA

    There is a good track though, one you can use on your way to Dwellingup even, off Napier rd. Have a look on google.maps - alas my photos of last time I was up there aren't with me at work.
    The first link is "Carnage Hill" on the edge of Lane Poole Reserve. The area around Carnage Hill is being logged at the moment and then the current Campground at Baden Powell is being closed. A new much bigger Camp ground with Kitchens etc will be constructed over the road and the Day Use area extended over the 'old' camp area. The inside word is Carnage Hill will be closed when that happens which is before Summer this year.

    The second link is to the Fire Access Track off Napier Road to Scarp Road via the Plateau. Gates and Bollards have now been installed and locked (last week) at the bottom of the hill at the end of Napier Road next to the Farm and also at the top of the Hill denying access to the Fire Access Track. The only way in and out of the Plateau is now off Scarp Road.

    The best alternatives and indeed with a lot more challenging terrain is to travel further down to Logue Brook, Harvey, Brunswick and Collie. Unfortunately there have been many logging Tracks in the Logue Brook and Harvey area that have either been graded to 2WD standard which deters 4WD's as there is no challenge or closed by DEC/Forestry. There are still a few good spots North and East of Harvey Dam however if you explore the area. The 'best' terrain is the forestry tracks down around Brunswick / Collie.

    There are a few other spots but the odds of anyone posting them up is pretty low as they are jealously guarded due to more and more areas being closed off. We also have to deal with the Disease Risk Areas over here which are a) huge, b) usually where there was good 'wheeling and c) total no go areas as part of the fight to control Dieback

    But... half the fun is exploring anyway and I agree with others in saying wack up a trip on here... you will get some people who will tag along and have a great day out for sure

    Dolphins are so smart that within a few weeks of captivity, they can train people to stand on the very edge of the pool and throw them fish.

    thanks for the correct names
    its a shame they have been putting in more gates and the like, i really enjoyed that access road run.

    i've never been down to collie and brunswick for offroading, partly because i don't know where I'm going... do you have any locations you can put up with google maps? then I just need to sort out the other part of the problem, which is getting people to head down with us, as a lot of the folk i know with vehicles are up perth way and would rather us travel that way for something like powerlines instead of go on a novel adventure elsewheres

    Try the Western Patrol Club Forum, there are members in Mandurah and further south... most of the Forum is locked but the trips calendar is viewable by non-members and guests are welcome. Trips get put up at shortish notice a lot so it pays to check back every now and then. http://westernpatrolclub.com/forum/i...r=2011;month=4

    There are trip reports from the last few years that might give you some ideas as well

    Brunswick, and Collie are not that far for a good day out, If someone puts up a trip, and i'm not working, just try and stop me from attending !
    Even dwellingup is pretty good, and if there has been a bit of rain can be a real challenge. It's only an hour from perth and makes for some good fun.
    02 GU Wag, 6.5 ltr Chev Diesel, 33's, 12000 lb winch, and other stuff, but who's got time to list it when you could be out drivin it ?
