The pristine Yeagarup Dunes form one of the largest dune systems in the south west of Western Australia and the drive across the top of the dunes is exhilarating. The shady, peaceful campsites situated at Leaning Marri Campground are a great base to explore the dunes and coastal area.
From Yeagarup Lake, the track to the beach passes over the dunes and lower tyre pressures (10 to 16 psi depending on conditions) are necessary. It is suited to high clearance four-wheel drives only (no trailers). The track climbs up onto shifting dunes and you are required to follow a marked path for the first three or four kilometres which may be slightly different each time you visit. Please stay within the marker poles for your your safety and to assist in preserving the vegetation.
Travel time from Yeagarup Lake to the Yeagarup Beach is around 40 minutes and is a scenic and interesting drive. The view from the top of the last steep hill to the ocean is vast and well worth the drive.
Once you get to the beach, you can head right (north-west) towards the cliffs that stretch along the coast from the mouth of the Donnelly River . This involves 15km of beach driving. Check the tide forecast and beach conditions before proceeding.
If you choose to turn left at the bottom of the Yeagarup Track, it’s a 2km drive to the mouth of the Warren River. This area features a vast salt marsh. This sensitive ecosystem provides habitat and food for a range of birds and animals and is an important habitat for fish. Please do not drive on the salt marsh. In the summer months, there may be a sandbar across the mouth of the Warren River which allows you to cross the river mouth and continue on to Warren Beach. At other times of the year, crossing the river mouth can be extremely hazardous and many vehicles have been bogged attempting it.
Near the start of Yeagarup Track, Leaning Marri Campground offers six shady single campsites and one group campsite with a shared shelter. These campsites are suitable for tents and small caravans and camper trailers.

We love to hear from people who've been on our Western Australian trails, so it would be most appreciated it if you wanted to leave a review.
Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
