Realignments & Alternative Routes

  • Wellington Dam Spur Trail

    The 19km Wellington Dam spur trail links the Bibbulmun Track from near Yabberup campsite, just south of Collie, to the Wellington Dam recreation area in the Wellington National Park. The spur trail was identified as an ideal project to develop due to its proximity to the Perth population base, handy vehicle access and easy linkage to other recreational activities in the area including mountain biking and canoeing. The trail can be walked as a three day/two night or two day/one night walk. It has two new group campsites (Lyall's Mill and Arcadia). The campsites do not have a sleeping shelter, just an undercover area, tables, toilet and tent sites.

    Directions

    Lyall's Mill campsite is approximately 350 metres away from Yabberup campsite (300m from the spur/Track junction). Arcadia campsite is on the spur trail between 3.5km south of the Wellington Dam wall. Lyall's Mill campsite is approximately 20km to the south of Collie along the Bibbulmun Track. From the other direction, it sits approximately 6km north of the Glen Mervyn Dam providing a challenging or easy day's walk depending on the age of the group and/or the travel time to get to the drop-off/pick-up point. The spur trail is marked with a green Waugal trail marker to differentiate it from the main Track.
