From Perth, head out on the Brookton Hwy and proceed ~83 km past the intersection with Canning Rd (Karragullen). After 83km (and ~14km from Brookton) turn left into Thompson Rd - take care with the dirt roads and occasional sharp bends. After 3km turn right at a T junction into Dale Rd, follow for 500m, then turn left into Hillcroft Rd and follow for 5km and turn left through the farm gate onto the Frazzle Rock map. Follow the signs along the tracks for ~2km to the assembly area.
Allow a good 2 hours travel time from the centre of Perth.
