Bibbulmun Track campsite upgrade completed

A million-dollar upgrade project to seven campsites on the Bibbulmun Track has been completed by the Parks and Wildlife Service of the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions.

Additionally, a new group campsite has been built near the traditional Monadnocks campsite. This will work with the existing group campsite at Mt Cook to create a 3-day 2-night walk close to Perth for school, scout or community groups.

Monadnocks are isolated hills of erosion-resistant bedrock that rise conspicuously above a flatter plain. Three examples of this give Western Australia’s Monadnocks Conservation Park, 35kms southeast of Armadale, its curious name.

Autumn is a wonderful time to explore the Bibbulmun Track which stretches 1000km from Kalamunda on the outskirts of Perth to Albany on the south coast. One of the world’s great long distance walk trails, it passes through many of the most beautiful national parks of the southwest forests and coastline.
