Celebrating a Bibbulmun Track anniversary
The Bibbulmun Track Foundation will celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the opening of the last section of Western Australia’s famous Bibbulmun Track with a re-enactment of the Bib Walk’98.
On 13 September 1998, Western Australia’s longest walk trail, the ‘new’ Bibbulmun Track was opened after being significantly realigned, extended from Walpole to Albany and upgraded with the addition of timber shelters at the campsites.
Stretching over 1,000 kilometres from Kalamunda in the Perth Hills to Albany on the south coast the track passes through some of the most beautiful and wild areas of the State’s south west.
Eleven walkers completed the 1998 end to end journey, accompanied along the way by sectional walkers.
The 25th Anniversary celebrations will include several components and various ways in which to be involved, beginning with a ceremony in Kalamunda on Friday 14 July 2023. From there, a small group of end-to-end walkers will begin their journey south, arriving at the Southern Terminus some eight weeks later.
The 25th Anniversary celebrations culminate in an event in Albany after walkers arrive on Wednesday 13 September 2023.
