The Bibbulmun Track is a 590 mi point-to-point hiking trail that starts in Kalamunda in the east of Perth, Western Australia, and winds its way through the South West of Western Australia to the city of Albany.
This long-distance ‘walking only’ trail is considered medium difficulty and thought to be one of the world’s greatest long-distance trails. For information on how we grade trails, please click here. Also, check our latest community posts for trail updates.
Best walked between April and November, this epic trail can be completed in approximately 49 days and those who finish can register as a ‘Bibbulmun Track end-to-ender’. (Caution is advised on trail times as this depends on multiple variables. For more info, click here.)
This trail showcases the spectacular landscapes of the region, taking in undulating karri and tingle forest paths as it follows the beautiful coastline with no huge altitude gain or loss anywhere on route but bushwalking on rocky, rough and steep terrain can be expected throughout, and whilst the track is well signposted with yellow triangular markers, some areas may become more difficult to navigate. For this reason, the full hiking route is only recommended for experienced hikers that have navigational skills and first aid.
Availability of water at any campsite or natural water source cannot be guaranteed, therefore it is vital that all hikers conserve water and plan accordingly so be sure to plan your sections in your route planner ahead of time.
Camping is permitted in the 49 designated campsites along the Track which offer timber shelters, basic pit toilets, rainwater tanks and picnic tables.
There is public transport available to and from the trailheads but no specific car parks where cars can be left safely for the duration of the hike, so it is advised to arrange car parking at any town accommodation you use before and after your hike or to arrange shared driving. Alternatively, there are groups on social media with trail angels who offer lifts to the trail.
Dogs are not permitted on this trail as it runs through many of the region’s national parks, water catchments or nature reserves.
