Parks and Wildlife Service Closure Protocols for Parks and Recreation Sites

Following the catastrophic Black Saturday bushfires in Victoria, and more recent fires in Western Australia such as Parkerville in 2014, community expectations for response and management of fire risk have changed.

During periods of higher fire risk throughout the bushfire season, the Parks and Wildlife Service will provide information regarding park closures and bushfire risk, while recognising the need for people to take responsibility for their own actions and safety. The Department will endeavour to do this in a way that doesn’t discourage enjoyment of Western Australia’s parks.

We recommend people do not walk on the Bibbulmun Track if the Fire Danger Rating is Very High or above.

Walking on the Track is best limited to late March through to late November. Cooler days provide for more enjoyment and less risk to personal health and safety, so please consider not walking on the Track on hot days this summer.

Please note that during the prohibited fire season, campfires will not be permitted at any Bibbulmun Track campsite ad walkers will need to carry a fuel stove.
