The Bibbulmun Track is a 1,000 kilometre long walk trail in Western Australia, starting in Kalamunda, Perth and ending in Albany. The area between Walpole and Denmark has perhaps the most stunning scenery of the entire track.
On the way to Walpole, walkers experience the dramatic coastal cliffs of Long Point, Nuyts Wilderness and Mandalay Beach (with Chatham Island off the coast). The Deep River is crossed (one of the most pristine rivers in the Southern Hemisphere) and massive red Tingle trees 400 years old (unique to this area) are encountered before reaching the small charming township of Walpole.
The walk from Walpole to Denmark is where the forest meets the sea. Towering Karri and ancient Red Tingle trees of the Valley of the Giants, east of Walpole, is an unique experience, where the Bibbulmun Track reaches the Tree Top Walk. From the forest, the walk trail heads back to the wild south coast, with beautiful beaches of Peaceful Bay, Parry Beach and Irwin Inlet. Greens Pool and Elephant Rocks near Denmark have exquisite rock formations and amazing, pristine waters.
The walking section between Walpole and Denmark is 125 km and although very beautiful, at times quite challenging!
If you can’t walk the whole section, enjoy a day walk, or even a short stroll. The Walpole Visitor Centre can help with Bibbulmun Track Maps.
