Day Walks on the Bibbulmun Track

Planning and preparation for your walk will ensure that you have the most enjoyable experience. The Bibbulmun Track Foundation website is a great source of information for details of what you need to do, pack and think about before going for a day walk.

Take a picnic morning tea or lunch as the half-way point on all these walks is at one of the Bibbulmun Track campsites, which have a timber shelter, picnic tables, bush toilet and water tank. They are a great place to relax and recharge your batteries before the walk back.
