Off-Road Vehicles and Motorbikes

Designated areas for off-road vehicle and motorbike use

There are no permitted public areas designated for off-road vehicle use in the City of Cockburn. However, the Coastal Park Motorcycle Club provides one of the best tracks for off-road motorbikes in Western Australia.

Using off-road vehicles and motorbikes on private land

Off-road trail bikes, motorbikes and vehicles can only be used on private land where there isn't an issue with local health laws, such as noise or dust. You must also make sure you have the owner's or occupier's consent.

  • Be registered under the Control of Vehicles (Off-Road Areas) legislation
