Trail bike, quad bike and all-terrain vehicle users can now access a series of online maps to see areas where off-road vehicles can be driven around WA.

The easy-to-use maps maps also identify local features and provide guides for licensing and registration.

In Hedland, the Spoilbank is the permitted area for Port, and Deepwater Reserve the area for South.

Produced in conjunction with the Recreational Trail Riders Association, Sports and Recreation Minister Mick Murray said the objective was to provide a clear and safe understanding of off-road vehicle laws.

“These maps will help all riders understand their responsibilities, as well as assist local governments to better manage access and make sure they activity is undertaken legally and in the right spots in their local areas,” he said.

“The majority of off-road users do the right thing, but we do see instances of riders in prohibited areas or on public roads.

“These maps give off-road vehicle users a clear, easy way to understand where off-road vehicles can be driven around the State.”

The maps are available on the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries website.
