Bibbulmun Track

Along the Rainbow Coast of Western Australia
Bibbulmun Track, Albany Section past the Albany Wind Farm

The Bibbulmun Track is one of the world's great long distance walk trails, stretching nearly 1000kms from Kalamunda (Perth Hills) to Albany (South Coast). The southern portion of the Bibbulmun Track winds along the Rainbow Coast from Walpole through to Albany, visiting many glorious locations as it meanders like the Rainbow Serpent, Waugal, who marks the way...

Following the Track

The Track is marked with yellow and black symbols of the Waugal, the Rainbow Serpent of the Aboriginal Dreaming. You could say this section of the Track is walking through the heart of the Rainbow Coast along the path of the Rainbow Serpent. :)

The track passes through most of the beautiful places along the Rainbow Coast. It is common to come across the 'Waugal' the symbol and trail marker of the Bibbulmun Track.

It winds along the coast from Albany through Denmark and on to Walpole. Almost anywhere you go near the coast you'll see the Waugal symbol, pointing you down the Track...

There are almost fifty campsites along the Track which are spaced one day's walk apart.

Plan Your Walk

The Bibbbulmun Track is a one-way track, meaning you'll have to plan how you're going to get BACK. Usually walkers are dropped off at the start of one section of the walk and picked up at the end by friend.

Two sections of the trail are relevant to the Rainbow Coast, the Walpole-Denmark section and the Denmark-Albany section. Information on each of these can be found on from these links:

Walpole - Denmark

Denmark - Albany

It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to purchase a guide and map which includes access locations, campsites, distances, tips and suggestions.
