Owner description: The Bibbulmun Track stretches for almost 1000 kilometres from Kalamunda in the Perth Hills to Albany on the south coast. It winds through some of the most beautiful natural areas of the State’s south west and is easily accessible, passing through seven rural communities and popular tourist spots such as Mundaring Weir, Gloucester Tree and the Tree Top Walk. The Track was designed for use by people with varying fitness levels. With numerous access points it can be walked as part of a relaxing day in the bush, overnight camping adventure or an eight to ten week end-to-end hike. Campsites with shelters are a comfortable day’s walk apart, while towns along the way provide a wide accommodation for those who prefer a comfy bed.

Great walk, well maintained and signed.

The huts are well spaced and great for resting. Water tanks were all filled due to recent rain but busier sections might ru out in summer months

The Bibbulmun track stretches 1000km from Perth (Kalamunda) to Albany, and can be enjoyed as an end-to-end walk, multi-day hikes, or day walks. There are huts about 15km apart, but these only provide shelter.

I've done many day walks (several of them multiple times) along the track between Albany and Denmark. There are many stunning walks in this area, most of which go along the rugged coastline, and feature stunning limestone and granite cliffs as well as beautiful beaches. Some of my favourite stretches include the section near the Albany Wind Farm, and near Shelley Beach. Other parts of the track in Pemberton and Manjumup area are quite different, featuring tall timber.

The Bibbulmun is a wonderful track that offers a great deal for hikers to enjoy; I've been enjoying it for years, and hope to continue doing so!

An outstanding hike an hours drive from Perth . Excellent terrain and amazing views on top of Mt Cooke. An excellent day trip or overnighter! The camp site and hut at Mt Cooke are well looked after and quite new. Check DEPAW for latest news on controlled burns.

This was a two night, three day hike, which meant we double hutted each day. Starting from Brookton Hyw the first day was quite an easy walk with few hills. The second day included Mt Cooke the highest peak of the Darling ranges at close to 600 metres. There are two other peaks that are climbed before ascending Mt Cooke. Fortunately the Mt Cooke campsite is before Mt Cooke, so you can lunch and rest before the ascent. It was easier than expected getting to the top. After coming off Mt Cooke it is quite a long flat walk to the camp site for night two. The final leg to North Bannister was very easy as the track was very flat. The big tip for this section is travel from the North to the South. Going the other way would mean you would have a very long gradual ascent to Mt Cooke, and then a very steep climb over smooth granite and potentially slippery rock face. You would be tired before you started the climb.

We parked our car at the picnic spot on the other side of the Albany highway from the start of this walk in a heavy shower, they continued on and off all day but did not spoil the walk. The return loop was around 15kms and i would rate it easy/moderate for relatively fit people. I am 58 and do a fair bit of bush walking. You are already fairly high up so even though the route takes you up and down Mt Vincent and Mt Cuthbert the climbs and descents are quite easy. each vertical rise being about 100 metres.

The volcanic rock is spectacular and the range of Flora is so diverse, I cannot remember a walk with such diversity. Although we were slightly early for the wild flower season there were plenty out, including some gorgeous Donkey orchids. We also saw some grass tree's with multiple ball shaped flower heads that we had never seen before.

We stopped at Moonadnocks campsite for lunch and were really impressed with the hut, which would house at least a dozen people. There was a fire pit, benches, tables, water, toilets and a separate tent area. We returned along a fire trail that takes you back to Sullivans rock, where we were treated to a small flock of Black Cockatoo's.

All in all a great day walk on a part of one of Australia's Iconic walks.
