38 Railway Rd, Kalamunda WA 6076, Australia Kalamunda Australia
The Northern Terminus of the Bibbulmun Track is located in Kalamunda. From here it stretches nearly 1000 kilometres to Albany on the south coast through some of the most beautiful natural areas of the State’s south west and passes through seven rural communities and popular tourist spots such as Mundaring Weir, Gloucester Tree and the Tree Top Walk.
The 17km section from Kalamunda to Mundaring Weir is a picturesque five hour walk at a comfortable speed. There are some rocky and steep sections through the valleys of Kalamunda National Park (well worth the breathtaking views and scenery). The section through Beelu National Park goes past some beautiful scenic lookouts and picnic spots. About half way is Calamunnda Camel Farm which has a kiosk and tea house. The track also goes past South Ledge which has picnicking facilities and toilets.
The Track was designed for use by people with varying fitness level. It can be enjoyed as a short stroll with the kids to have a picnic at a campsite, with a group on a guided event or as the physical challenge and personal achievement of a long distance walk. Well-equipped campsites with a 3 sided wooden sleeping shelter, picnic table, water tank, tent sites and pit toilet are a comfortable day’s walk apart, while towns along the way provide a wide range of accommodation for those who prefer a comfy bed.
Maps and Guidebooks can be purchased from the Bibbulmun Track Foundation, who also provide free information and advice, a Calendar of Events published twice yearly providing guided walks for all ages and fitness levels, trip planning sessions, Bibbulmun Highlight all inclusive 8-day tours and Bibbulmun Walking Breaks – self-guided walking and accommodation packages.
