  • Seasonal Diversion

    Location: Torbay west of Albany

    During times of heavy seas and high winter tides, the Bibbulmun Track is diverted around the Perkins Beach Headland between Cosy corner and Torbay Inlet. 

    Download the map.

    This is due to the rocky headland being difficult to cross making it dangerous for walkers during high tides and heavy seas through winter. 

    The Track has been diverted higher along a gravel road verge and 4WD track. 

    Walkers please use caution when walking along the gravel road verge and 4WD track for on coming track. Walkers ahead and reduce speed signage has been put in place.
