You Can Currently Walk To Wedge Island Off The Coast Of Lancelin

Popular WA tourist and getaway hotspot Wedge Island, about 140km north of Perth, has become accessible by foot for the first time in five years.

The community of Lancelin facebook page released an update this morning featuring an aerial photograph confirming reports that water had receded to a ‘6m wide ankle deep channel’ from the mainland out across to the island.

The facebook update includes a prediction that a complete dry sandbar will form within the next few days.

If you’re feeling keen for a road trip this weekend, it’s a pretty good time to take a cruise up north and channel your inner Moses before the weather gets too hot and the ocean reclaims the footbridge.
