Trails: Drive (2WD)

Driving holidays are one of the best ways to experience the wide open spaces and unique landscapes of Western Australia. The Drive trails on this website link up with many of the walk and bike trails on the site and present lots of opportunities to stop and stretch your legs.

Rental cars and motorhomes are readily available for hire and require a valid driver's license. While international licenses are not required, they are recommended.  Distances North of Perth can be huge so it’s essential you plan your trip carefully.  

For information about driving in WA visit the Tourism WA website or Drive WA.
