Off Road Vehicles

There are no areas on public land in the City of Busselton designated for trail bikes.

Off-road vehicles (ORV) must be registered as such and must comply with prescribed safety and noise standards.  Off-road vehicles can only be used in certain specified areas (permitted areas) or on private land with the land owner’s or occupier’s consent and must not be driven by children under eight years of age (except on private land where the owner’s or occupier’s consent has been given).

4 wheel drive vehicles are permitted access on the Wonnerup Beach from the Wonnerup Boat Ramp east to the estuary ONLY.

Off-road vehicles are not to be used in any parks, reserves, beaches or on the road in the City of Busselton. If you spot an ORV in a park, reserve or beach call Ranger and Emergency Services on 9781 0444. If you spot an ORV in the street, call the Police on 131 444.

Pocket Motor Bikes

Pocket motor bikes (vehicles under 50cc) are classed as a vehicle under the Road Traffic Act 1974 (WA) and as such must conform to the Act. They are not allowed to be ridden on a footpath or roadway unless registered. They may be ridden on private property with the consent of the owner.

Motorised skateboards are likewise classed as a vehicle and must also conform to the Road Traffic Act. Again they are not allowed to be ridden on a footpath or be ridden on a roadway unless registered.

As it is unlikely either of these vehicle types will meet registration standards, it is recommended you report them when seen.

If the pocket motor bike or motorised skateboard is on public property such as a reserve, contact Ranger and Emergency Services on 9781 0444.

If the pocket motor bike or motorised skateboard is on a footpath or roadway, contact the Police on 131 444.
