Track Info - Bibbulmun Track Foundation

The Bibbulmun Track is one of the world's great long distance walk trails, stretching nearly 1000kms from Kalamunda, a suburb in the hills on the outskirts of Perth, to the historic town of Albany on the south coast. It passes through the heart of the scenic South West of Western Australia.

The Track is for walkers only and is signposted with yellow triangular markers symbolising the ‘Waugal’ (rainbow serpent of the aboriginal Dreaming). It takes walkers through towering karri and tingle forests, down mist-shrouded valleys, over giant granite boulders and along breathtaking coastal heathlands. It passes through many of the most beautiful national parks of the South West forests and coastline.

The Bibbulmun Track offers a wide range of experiences, from a gentle stroll to enjoy the peace and beauty of the natural environment, to an epic eight week adventure. You can make it a wilderness experience by camping out, you can join a guided group, or you can do it in comfort by staying in the towns along the Track and enjoying day walks in the area. The Track passes through Dwellingup, Collie, Balingup, Donnelly River Village, Pemberton, Northcliffe, Walpole, Peaceful Bay and Denmark.

Track facilities include 48 bushwalker campsites, each with a three-sided timber sleeping shelter, pit toilet, rainwater tank, tent areas and picnic tables.

Although the Track is well marked, walkers are advised to use a map or guidebook. The eight water-resistant, virtually rip-proof full colour maps and two compact and informative guide books (Northern and Southern) published by DEC show car access points, campsites, terrain profiles and distances tables and are available from this website, DEC, equipment stores and some visitor information centres.

A wide variety of short walks, interpretive tours and accommodation and walking packages are offered by the Bibbulmun Track Foundation. The Foundation also provides a free information service, equipment hire and a range of merchandise.

Please note that Bibbulmun Track maps for navigational purposes are not available for viewing online. They can however be purchased via our merchandise page or by phoning our office.
