It takes money to keep a free resource free! Join the Foundation and aside from receiving a terrific range of benefits, it means that you are part of one of the best long distance walking tracks in the world.
The Track needs friends!
As an incorporated not-for-profit organisation, the Bibbulmun Track Foundation relies upon the generosity of our members and supporters.
The Foundation ensures that WA’s premier walk trail, the Bibbulmun Track, is maintained in world-class condition. Through our Calendar of Events and free information service, we encourage people of all ages and fitness levels to access the Track and discover the delights of bushwalking.
The Foundation also helps to protect the Track and its surrounds from encroaching development, while promoting sustainable tourism to bring economic benefit to the rural communities through which it passes.
Members and volunteers are the life-blood of the Foundation and your support will help to safeguard this precious community resource for future generations. Being a friend of the Bibbulmun Track also brings you a terrific range of benefits.
