Wilbinga WA


Postcode: 6041

Wilbinga is a locality within the Shire of Gingin, just beyond the Perth metropolitan area’s northern limit.

Wilbinga is bounded by the City of Wanneroo to the south, Wanneroo Road and the former Gingin Stock Route to the east, Wabling Road to the north and the Indian Ocean to the west. Most of the suburb’s area is contained within State Forest No. 65 (South) and, apart from Wanneroo Road, the locality contains no sealed roads.

Tracks from Wilbinga Road provide access to isolated Wilbinga Beach. Wilbinga Beach is a fantastic place to go swimming, fishing and just spending the day at a beach.

This is one of the nearest places to Perth where you can go four wheel driving on beach sand and dunes. The Wilbinga area is mainly sand tracks, and the beach sports lots of sand dunes to drive over.

As at the 2001 census, neither Wilbinga nor the neighbouring suburb of Caraban had a measurable population.

A fire lookout at Wabling Hill, originally constructed in 1959, provides views to the Moore River to the north, the ocean to the west, and generally over the state forest and small pine plantations nearby. Wabling Hill Mallee (Eucalyptus argutifolia) is endemic in the area.
