WA 4WD to unveil 4200km Mundaring loop at the Perth 4×4 Show

Following the release last year of its Mundaring to Albany’ living track’, WA 4WD has announced a 3500km extension which it will reveal in full at the Perth 4×4 Show in November.

What began as an idea back in 2010, became a reality last year when WA 4WD unveiled its 900km long Mundaring to Albany track (MundAl track). The organisation has announced it will launch a 3500km extension to that track at the Perth 4X4 Show which runs from the 8-10th November.

The Mundaring to Albany track, like the extension, is a living track which means it follows GPS waypoints rather than a specific route. That allows for adjustments to be made in the event of road closures.

The original drive aimed to get travellers into areas of Western Australia they might not ordinarily visit to promote tourism. And that’s the case with the extension which will take tourers from Albany through to Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Mingenew and Mount Magnet and then back to Mundaring. All up, it’ll take around six weeks to drive.

The track is a collection of unsealed roads, some bitumen sections, station tracks and parts of the Holland Drive. Given the majority of the drive is on gazetted roads, only licenced vehicles can be driven.

To get access to the waypoints for the MundAl track you’ll need to subscribe to the WA 4WD website which you can do via this LINK. Once the track extension has been released at the Perth 4×4 Show, the waypoints will be emailed to subscribers. The below video gives you a sneak peak at the MundAL track.
