Chasing a bit of track condition information for the section from Koolyanobbing through the Helena-Aurora - Hunt Ranges to the Evanston-Menzies Rd.

Just knocked this off on the weekend, track was ok for us. Much the same as HT but less travelled. We got bikes and a vehicle through to the Menzies road then skirted the cresent salt pans North and East to Lk Ballard.

Looks good after some water.

This should be in inmates but locals know better

Hi guys ,

Mandurah or Albany for living ? Lived for 3 years in Perth (Scarborough) but I want to stay out of it this time . Jobwise , probably Mandurah is a better call being close to Perth if local jobmarket is dry . Albany looks nicer , better but jobs could be scarce . I am flexible with the work , public relations or getting my hands dirty no problems at all .
I would appreciate any imput from you guys ! The the wiser

I wouldn't live in Albany, mate. Rains all the time, fishing is crap, scenery around the area is dead boring & the whole town is on the dole as there's no work at all. Plus the area is too full of foreign (pommy) blow-ins.

As I said, a shocking place.

I wouldn't live there & everyone knows I wouldn't lie about such things.


This site will show you how bad things are in Albany.
