We are delighted that the Bibbulmun Track has been included in National Geographic 20 ‘Holy Grails of trails’. Described as ‘Southwestern Australia's answer to the Appalachian Trail’, it was the only Australian trail named in the top 20!

Over two hundred members and their friends pitted their wits at the Foundation’s Christmas in July Quiz Night.
The event was a great success with lots of laughter, serious contemplation, fun and games and much wrinkling of brows!
The evening saw many winners, and Chris Lee was delighted with his $300 gift voucher from Mountain Designs, part of our May Member Madness promotion. All members who booked and paid for their quiz table before the 31st May automatically went into the draw.
Our next major fundraising project involves the restoration of the Long Gully Bridge near Dwellingup, and we are delighted to announce that the Quiz Night raised a grand total of $6,400. These funds will be used to assist in the restoration of this historic landmark, which carries Bibbulmun Track walkers across the Murray River.

The Foundation is conducting a survey to assist with the future planning, management and maintenance of the Track. The survey will be conducted over the next few months. However, walkers may only complete it once and that must be within 4 weeks of walking on the Track.
So if you've been out on the Track within the past 4 weeks please complete our survey now, or if you're planning a walk over the next few months we'd love to hear from you then. Thank you for your input!
We will require volunteers to assist with the survey out on the Track in the Kalamunda/Mundaring area, Karri Gully, Tree Top Walk and Albany areas. If you are interested in helping, please contact us.
If you have any questions regarding the survey, please contact the Recreation and Trails Unit at DPaW.
