COVID-19 Response

To all valued members and Bibbulmun Track hiking community,

As at Saturday 27th June, all restrictions in WA relevant to the hiking and the Track were removed. This means that groups sizes for overnights stays at campsite revert to pre-COVID-19 limits. Click here for more information on limits and to lodge a group notification if you are in a group of eight people or more planning to stay overnight.

Please continue to maintain social distancing and hygiene precautions:

  • Keep the required minimum distance between you and other hikers, currently 1.5m. Avoid shaking hands or other close contact — waving is a safer way to greet others.
  • Use hand sanitiser before eating and after touching surfaces. Use hand sanitizer that contains 70-95% alcohol.
  • Avoid sharing food, utensils and drink bottles.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing. Use the crook of your arm (inner elbow) or use a tissue, put it into a sealable bag and dispose of it using Leave No Trace principles.
  •  It should go without saying (but we will say it anyway) – do not hike on the Track if you are required to self-isolate, quarantine or feel unwell. At this stage this applies to those who have arrived in Perth from overseas or interstate, have been exposed to the virus, are waiting for their test results or are a vulnerable person. You need to self-isolate AT HOME for a minimum of 14 days.

We will continue to monitor the advice and Guidelines of the Australian Department of Health. For latest updates and health advice visit WA.gov.au
