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.

Always good. You can startbin Perth hills and end up in Albany but it's more likely to do a few parts. The beaches at Denmark and Albany are special and well worth doing by any local or visitor. Love it. Just take plenty of water, hat and hiking boots. A must do! & expierence!

We've great respect for those who have trekked the entire track. We've merely walked minor sections of the Bibbulmun... and have been fascinated by the diversity of flora and fauna.

I'd intended to review the Walpole Inlet Walk, but having just reviewed another section, the Sandy Beach Walk Trail, TA won't permit me to do so in the Walpole-Nornalup environment(!)

You can commence the Walpole Inlet Walk either from Walpole itself, or alternatively, from Rest Point. The Walpole-Nornalup Visitor Centre is worth a visit if commencing from the town itself... although signage in Walpole is excellent. (See photos).

Our most recent walk commenced at Rest Point. It's an easy walk in good weather. Even seniors our age can complete the trail in one hour. Returning will, of course, take a second hour. If there's any chance of heavy rain, consider an umbrella. Younger friends, half-our-age, were truly glad they'd borrowed ours when a squall hit them halfway home!

This delightful trail is generally well-posted, although some signage needs repair. You'll cross the Walpole River and a couple of creeks en route. Bridges are (now) in good shape. A boardwalk, apparently recently-oiled, leads walkers through wetlands where redgum, tingle and jarrah forest gives way to saltwater paperbarks. Pause awhile at the crest of the Walpole River Bridge. Birdlife is prolific in this beautiful, serene location.

Track surface varies. There's white sand, grey sand, gravel, even bituminised sections... and most are well-maintained. Comfortable benches, often well-placed for inlet views, afford both a rest... and an opportunity to reflect on the beauty of this section of the Bibbulmun Track.

Hiked 200+ km. Walpole to Albany section along the track. Revisiting after doing end to end in 2009. Was a wonderful & amazing stroll walking this section again.
Nature, Wilderness & Landscapes filling your soul with gypsy wonder & charm.

Where do I begin? So I did overnight walks for 3 amazing days and I promised myself I'd come back again and do the whole thing! Well, I started my walk from Kalamunda, took the bus from Elizabeth Quay station and the 45min ride was pretty smooth. It was past noon time and I managed to arrive at Hewetts Hill Campsite (10.2km) before it was dark. Continued my walk to Mundaring and up to Ball Creek Campsite (10.6km) the next day. Spent the night sleeping out in the tent on the second night and it was worthwhile despite the cold and rain. Met some nice walkers too! Bibbulmun I'm coming back for ya!

Great for day walks or overnight stays. Sleeping huts every 15 or so KM's and some amazing scenery to get there. You have to carry everything you need so it keeps things simple. Unbelievable how quickly, when walking and relaxing, how quickly you release the everyday stresses. The track is really well kept and signed and the huts, though just a place to rest and sleep (each one has a toilet and rainwater tank) are clean and well maintained.
