Bibbulmun Track. WA's long distance mountain bike trail

WA's Long Distance Walking Trail

The Bibbulmun Track is one of the world's great long distance walking trails, stretching nearly 1000 kilometres from Kalamunda, in the Perth Hills, to Bibulmun Track sign 1the historic town of Albany on the south coast. This Top Trail passes through the heart of the scenic south west of Western Australia.

The track winds its way through towering Karri, Marri, Jarrah and Tingle forests, down mist-shrouded valleys, across giant granite boulders and along beautiful coastal heath lands. Bushwalkers from WA, interstate and from around the world come to Western Australia to walk the track.

The track passes through the track towns of Dwellingup, Collie, Balingup, Donnelly River Village, Pemberton, Northcliffe, Walpole and Denmark. The track offers a wide range of experiences, from a gentle stroll, day walks to enjoy the peace and beauty of the natural environment, to an epic eight week adventure staying in the 49 campsites along the way, to day walks.

 

There are campsites along the track offering a sleeping shelter, pit toilet, rainwater tank and tent sites. The track is marked with yellow triangular Cascades sign Waugl Marker Bib Trackmarkers symbolising the 'Waugal' (rainbow serpent of the Aboriginal Dreaming).

The track is linear. You can organize day walks or overnight using the track towns and the campsites along the track. Walkers use Pemberton as a start or finish point with the two following sections.

Donnelly River Village to Pemberton | Distance: 100km

The Donnelly River remains a companion for much of this walk. Walkers pass through the historic areas of Donnelly Mill, One Tree Bridge and Chappels Bridge. All are now recreation sites. The fact that the river is a companion though doesn't mean that the walking is easy. Indeed this section has some of the toughest hills on the Track in one area. It is balanced though with riverside campsites, restful swimming holes and some of the best old-growth Karri forest in the south west. Further south walkers come to the Beedelup Falls and Big Brook Dam as they approach Pemberton, a major Track town.

Pemberton to Northcliffe | Distance: 55km

The walk from Pemberton to Northcliffe is well known for pleasant walking through the Karri forest. A shorter walk between these towns (three days, two nights), it is the perfect section for a quick getaway. It boasts the famous Gloucester Tree which is well worth a climb - but take off your pack before you climb the 61 metres to the top. The Warren campsite is nestled in the Karri forest whilst Schafer campsite named after Geoff Schafer, is on the banks of a welcome swimming hole.
