Experiencing the Bibbulmun Track

WA Parks Foundation Chair the Hon Kerry Sanderson AC CVO with Board Director Eva Skira AM hiking on the Bibbulmun Track

Bushwalking is a natural tonic, providing a balance between enjoyable, low impact physical activity and a wellbeing workout.

Western Australia’s famous Bibbulmun Track extending from Kalamunda in the Perth hills to Albany on the south coast has much to offer in that regard and the best seasons to walk it are Winter and Spring.

If you want to experience the geological features, biodiversity and scenic beauty of this long-distance walking trail, the Section-by-Section guide on the excellent Bibbulmun Track Foundation website is a great place to start.

It’s designed to help decide which part of the 1000 km Track you’d like to walk and to give you all the planning information you need. This includes how to get there, highlights, interesting places, weather forecasts, Track conditions, the Track towns and photos.

Wildlife abounds on the Bibbulmun Track. Pictured here is an impressive Heath Goanna (Varanus rosenbergi)

The website also carries excellent suggestions for itineraries ranging from two to six days, with each itinerary including suggestions for day-walks on the Track, as well as sights and attractions to visit.  Pick one itinerary or join several together to customise your Bibbulmun Track holiday adventure.
