  • Bushfires close Track

    29 January 2016

    A section of the Track is closed due to bushfires.

    For more information, click on the link and then click the Realignments/Diversions tab.

    1) Dwellingup to the Harvey-Quindanning Rd including 3 campsites.

    This section will remain closed for some time. There is currently no diversion.

    Walkers should avoid these areas and also seriously reconsider plans to walk any sections of the northern half of the Track at this time of year.

    2) Brookton Hwy to Sullivan Rock is now open.

    An end-to-end walk is still not possible.

    The original Nerang campsite, located not far from the current campsite, was destroyed in a bush fire in 2003.

  • Canning Campsite survives bushfire

    29 January 2016

    On January 9 a bushfire swept through the section south of the Brookton Hwy near Fourways Rd. It burned through approximately 945 hectares of State Forest.

    Much of the Track was affected.

    This was a severe fire and it is amazing to see that the shelter survived it. It came within a whisker of burning to the ground. 

    We wish to thank all involved in fighting this blaze which was started by lightning.

    The Track from Brookton Hwy and Sullivan Rock including both Canning and Monadnocks Campsites are now open.

  • Miracle at Murray Campsite

    27 January 2016

    On January 6, a devastating bushfire swept through the section south of Dwellingup which then spread to Waroona and Yarloop.

    Much of the Track was affected and the section remains closed due to the very real risk of death from falling trees.

    We are happy to say that while some damage was sustained, the shelter and toilet at Murray campsite still stand.

    This was a severe fire and it is amazing to see that the shelter survived it. It (along with Canning Campsite in another fire) came within a whisker of burning to the ground. 

    We wish to thank all involved in fighting this horrific blaze which destroyed so many people's homes and property.

    The area is still unsafe and the Track, along with Murray Campsite, will be closed for quite some time yet.  Assessors still need to go in and check the site. 

     We may also assume that water in the tank is unsafe to drink as the heat may have melted the plastic liner in the water tank.

    It is extremely unsafe for walkers to go to the campsite or the closed section of the Track. Please, stay away.
