Feel the wind in your hair as you 4WD on this gorgeous Peel beach. These three beaches (other locations are Preston Beach and Tims Thicket) are the closest southern locations from Perth where you can legally drive on the beach.
The beach is a part of Yalgorup National Park and access is via White Hills Road, about 17km south of Mandurah on Old Coast Road. White Hill Road quickly turns a moderately corrugated hard sand road. Near its end, when you can see the beach, is an ideal spot to pull over and reduce your tyres. To get onto the beach at the end of White Hill Road, you drive down into a dune swale, and then up a large dune and over to the beach. White Hills extends about 2kms north to Seal Rock (limestone reef outcrop tricky to get round at high tide but fun at low water). Driving south, its 22kms to Preston Beach. The sand can be soft in places; its a beach that varies and that’s part of the adventure of 4WDing!
4WDing is only permitted on the beach; access to the dunes is prohibited and this includes sandboarding. Only 4WD vehicles licensed for the road are permitted to use the beach; no motorbikes, four wheelers or dune buggies. A gas cooker permitted, but please no other fires and no camping and take your rubbish out with you.
