“Large sand dunes as far as the eye can see.”
Review of Yeagarup Dunes

Yeagarup Dunes
Ranked #17 of 35 things to do in Pemberton
Attraction details
Reviewed 11 June 2017

The Yeagarup Dunes is a massive land-locked mobile dune system that is also apparently slowly moving inland. The Dunes stretches 7 by 3 km, and at the top-point where we drove to, we had a commanding view all around the region.

The sand there are of uniform color though not of the very fine grain type – which perhaps makes snowboarding more difficult if not outright impossible, unlike the Lancelin sand dunes north of Perth. Just before starting on this track across the sand dunes, our driver stopped the vehicle to reduce tyre pressure. I was wondering about that, and only read later in the brochure that this was necessary because of the soft sand, and the very steep climbs involved getting up to the top of the dunes. The ride there is a little bumpy, but well worth the effort. Don't miss visiting this spot!

If you have a 4wd, do yourself a favour and drive up in to the dunes.
The entry hill is the hardest. Set your tyre pressures to 15psi and give it heaps of gas at the bottom and you should make it up no problems.

We went to the dunes hiking instead 4wd .. We walk towards the sea on the track , during 1.5 hours and we decided to back Yeagarup information center . It was a wonderful walk sometimes difficult to walk on the sand .. But it was like to be in the Sahara .. Bring many water in case on hot weather

Cannot make it to the Sahara,try this instead, the entry climb is almost vertical and you will need to lower the 4x4s tyres, if you make it up, the rest is easy unless you try Callcup hill, many don't make it as the sand is so soft and it is a long long way up to the top

Absolutely need a reliable sound 4 wheel drive with experienced and responsible drivers. Not for the unprepared faint hearted. Some dunes at approximately 50 meters high. Observe direction, stay within the post and behave responsibly is the key. Quite an experience indeed.
