|Australasian Safari: Rally to cross the Murchison off-road adventure park.|
Western Australia’s only 4WD and adventure park, Murchison Offroad Adventures, will test its tracks against some of the world’s best in September when a leg of the [ AUSTRALASIANSAFARI.COM.AU ] Rally takes on its outback terrain.
Located five and a half hours north of Perth, or 90 minutes from Geraldton, Murchison Offroad Adventures has a massive 1,215 km2 of land and hundreds of kilometres of dirt tracks designed for enthusiasts to escape for an off-road adventure. When Australia’s toughest motorsport event visits next month the dust will be flying higher than usual!
Off-road racing is growing in popularity in the Murchison area, but owner and manager Bev Lane said most competitors travelled from Perth, Kalgoorlie or further afield for the experience.
"You can camp along the Murchison river in isolated spots or stay in the Shearers Quarters for a bit more privacy. We give you a mud map and you drive along the track best suited to you - whether it’s 2WD, 4WD, beginners or experienced" Bev Lane said.
The property also offers free family activities such as kayaking, archery and pony rides. Over the next 12 months further investment will see it become a premier holiday destination in the Midwest of Western Australia.
Bev revealed that sand, mud, rocks and washouts are all on the cards for Australasian Safari competitors. "Our stage of the Australasian Safari could be one of the most challenging" Bev Lane said. "It will slow them down and make them think."
Spectators can witness the action from a spectator point housed at the "Dirt Dust n Diesels Bar and Grill" located on the property where the vehicles will race past. For further information on Murchison Offroad Adventures visit [ MURCHISON OFFROAD ADVENTURES ].
