Departing east, track 115 degrees via the outbound route to Armadale. Note that the Armadale position is located just to the south of this large valley, which will help you with navigating your departure route.
To the south of the track is Forrestdale Lake, one of the inbound approach points to Jandakot. Maintain 1000ft until abeam Forrestdale Lake to ensure separation from arriving aircraft that will be at 1500ft.
As you are departing the control zone, be aware of the lateral boundary of the Perth control zone, CLL Surface, just to the north. If you are not accurate in your track to Armadale, or do not allow for drift, you could infringe this airspace boundary to your left, particularly in the case of a strong southerly.
After leaving the Jandakot control zone, and north of Forrestdale Lake, you will see the Tonkin Highway and Champion Lakes rowing centre. These two features roughly align with the 2000ft CTA step.
The 2000ft lower limit step of the Perth CTA overlies this area and must be strictly observed as Perth ATC may be vectoring aircraft for Perth Runway 03 arrivals.
If Perth RWY 03 is in use, it is recommended that you climb to not above 1500ft once you have left the Jandakot control zone to allow for a suitable tolerance. Continue your climb at Armadale. Caution: be aware of possible wake turbulence when RWY 03 is in use.

The Armadale position may be identified as the intersection of the Albany Highway and the South-West Highway just to the east of the Minawarra Park shopping centre.
Tracking east from Armadale, ensure you remain below 3500ft as the CTA lower limit extends out to 22 DME Perth. A large number of violations of controlled airspace occur in the Perth area.
Follow the VFR route from Armadale to Mount Dale via Canning Dam. The track to Canning Dam is 098°. Do not track from Armadale direct to Mount Dale as you will not be applying the correct buffer of 2nm laterally to the CTA boundary.
Approaching Canning Dam from the west, note the three distinct waterways leading into the dam wall from the east.
S 32 09.3 E 116 07.5
At Canning Dam, take up a track of 082° to Mount Dale.
A little past half way from Canning Dam, note the power line crossing from north-west to south-east. Mt Dale is the centre peak.
