Diversions & Other Impacts

  • Maintenance works

    Location: Sandpatch Campsite

    Walkers are advised that BTF maintenance volunteers will undertake maintenance and improvement works at Sandpatch campsite and Track in the area on 28 May 2022 as part of the annual Albany District Field Day. 

    The work will affect the entire campsite, particularly the shelter. Walkers wishing to use the toilet or access the water tanks should ask a maintenance volunteer who will confirm when safe to do so. 

    Work will be complete by 5pm but walkers should be aware that bunks may have been freshly varnished and not be quite dry.

    Please follow the work crew's directions for your safety.

  • 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.
