The Bibbulmun Track is one of the world's great long distance walk trails, stretching 1000km from Kalamunda on the outskirts of Perth, to the historic town of Albany on the south coast. This walk is in the Walpole Wilderness Area, which boasts some of WA's most spectacular landscapes, coasts, habitats and vegetation. Consisting of a number of national parks and reserves, the Walpole Wilderness Area safeguards areas of environmental, biodiversity and indigenous significance. The day walk starts from the Giant Tingle Tree which, with a girth of 24m, is the largest-girthed living eucalypt known in the world. It then heads down to Hilltop Lookout, with its panoramic views of Nornalup Inlet and the Southern Ocean, then descends to Coalmine Beach on the shores of the Walpole and Nornalup Inlets Marine Park. The Track passes through splendid karri and red tingle forest which comes alive in springtime with wildflowers. The Bibbulmun Track offers a wide range of experiences, from a gentle stroll to enjoy the peace and beauty of the natural environment, to an epic eight week adventure camping out at the 49 campsites and enjoying the hospitality of nine communities along the way. Those that walk every step of the way can be registered as end-to-enders. This guide is just a taste of the 1000km Bibbulmun Track. For other day walks or multi-day trips view the Bibbulmun Track guides.

For information see lnt.org.au Bush safety - know before you go: - Always carry a map and know how to use it. - Tell someone at home and leave your itinerary with them in case of an emergency. - Supply to survive: * Carry sufficient water and food for the duration of your trip. * Ensure you are wearing appropriate clothing and footwear. * Carry a first aid kit and know basic first aid. - Be aware of the weather, Western Australia experiences extreme weather, check the forecasts before you go. - Know your limits. Ensure you are fit enough for this walk. For trip planning advice see bibbulmuntrack.org.au Emergency information: It is recommended that you do not walk on days of very high, extreme or severe fire danger. In the unlikely event you are threatened by bushfire: - Use the map to locate the nearest road away from the direction of the fire. If it is safe walk quickly towards the road. Do not run, fire rarely travels more than walking pace in the forest. - Move across the slope and out of the path of the fire, do not go uphill unless you are certain a safe refuge is there. - Seek refuge and try to stay on bare or burned ground. - Shield yourself from radiant heat by using large rocks, logs, culverts, running streams or dirt as a barrier. - Breathe air close to the ground. If you are lost: - Stop. Remain calm and stay together. - Use the map to review your route. - Look at surrounding features such as tracks, streams, roads or contours and try to identify them on your map. - Retrace your route until you find a marker. - If you are still lost consider the need for warmth, shelter and water. In the event of accident, injury or illness remain calm and stay on the trail, as it will be easier to locate you.
