Eyre Bird Observatory access sand track, Western Australia
Eyre Bird Observatory access track, Western Australia. About 12 kilometres from the Observatory there is a microwave tower with a car park. That is as far as two wheel drive vehicles can go.

After that there is a steep descent down the escarpment, followed by 10 kilometres of deep soft sand track. A four wheel drive vehicle with sufficient ground clearance should have no difficulty coping with it, providing they have let down their tyres sufficiently. We let down the tyres to 20 psi on the Land Rover and had no problems at all. Many parts of the track are much deeper sand than this, but we didn't want to stop there for photos! You have to keep an eye out for vehicles coming the other way. April 2014
