There is nothing more freeing that exploring a 4WD unsealed track with the breeze in your face. Or the adrenaline and excitement of motor racing action.

4WD & OFF ROAD

Feel the freedom of driving along one of our many 4WD accessible beaches including Belvidere, Peppermint Beach, Binningup and more – the oceans by your side and the wind is in your hair. Or witness the brilliant forest tracks, surrounded by towering Jarrah trees.
TRAIL BIKE RIDING
One of the few WA private trail bike parks is located in BunGeo. West Coast Trail Bike Safaris and Riding Park near Kirup is a licensed commercial tour operator. Their aim is to promote responsible off-road riding techniques by respecting our environment, landowners and anyone else using the precious trails of the South West region so they may remain open into the future.
The park is located on a private property of 1200 acres, consisting of young blue gum trees and natural bush set amongst an undulating countryside of granite outcrops, creeks and gullies. This Riding Park is for everyone to ride together in a safe and controlled environment using an arrow system, and is open to trail bikes and four-wheelers.
The trails are graded, a single arrow is an easy trail, a double arrow being an enduro trail and a triple arrow being technical riding for experienced riders. Tracks range from 2kms to 80 kms in length. There are also Skills training area, plus Kids trails and a Peewee track available. Camping is available but is unpowered, with toilet and show facilities. Open dates vary, so bookings are essential. Note, Because these parks are operated on private land you do not need a registered bike or a licence to ride there. You do however have to book and pay to use these facilities, as they are privately run businesses.
If you belong to a Motor trail club, you may also have access to other facilities in BunGeo, including trails at Ironstone, near Capel, which were recently used of the Motorcycling WA Capel 200.
