RATED FRONT & REAR RECOVERY POINTS ARE A MUST.
You must have front and rear RATED recovery points to head out on this trip. They MUST be rated and not just the tie downs that are part of your car. There are only a select few 4wd vehicles that come out standard with rated recovery points, all others are fitted aftermarket. If you are unsure PLEASE phone before booking.
This one is for all the newbies out there, if you need a bit more confidence hitting the tracks or just purchased a new 4wd and want to see what its capabilities are.
Once we head into the dunes we will be exploring the tracks and learning what you, and your car can do.
The tracks can be challenging at times but nothing we haven't put newbies through in the past.
We will go through a few basics like tyre pressures, different recovery gear and the do's & dont's on different terrain.
Great way to try out your skills in a controlled area. So come along and have a go.
We will provide you with lunch (sausage sizzle) and tea or coffee. If you don't eat sausages you will need to BYO lunch.
Things you will need:
Bring your morning tea, drinks and a chair. If you do not eat beef sausages please bring anything you would like to put on the bbq.
If you have any recovery gear bring it along. We have a full recovery kit for use on the day but always good to see what others have and show you ways to use it. Tyre deflator & compressor. Closed in shoes, sunscreen & hat. Appropriate clothing for the days weather.
Be sure to bring your camera as there should be some great photo opportunities.
Kids are welcome, but dogs are not allowed in the area.
Rates: $250 per vehicle (based on 2 people)
Each car receives a goodie bag from Get Lost Tours.
Plus any photos from the days adventures will be sent once we return to Perth.
No Alcohol is to be consumed during the days driving.
Children are always welcome.
NO PETS as we will be in a National Park.
All vehicles must be licensed, roadworthy and have front & rear recovery points. You should also have full insurance and good remote recovery cover. At least one spare tyre, two are always a good option as well if you can carry them.
If you need advice or explanation of any of the above please phone/email us.
