Diversions & Other Impacts

  • Campfire bans in place

    Location: Donnelly River Village to Pemberton

    Campfire bans are now in place at all campsite in this section.

    Walkers are not permitted to light any campfires or wood operated stoves during these periods. Please carry and use a liquid fuel stove.

    Campfire bans will continue to April 2020 depending on weather conditions. 

    On certain days, a total fire ban will be in force where walkers are not permitted to light a fuel stove either. For information about locations of current total fire bans call 1800 709 355 or visit the www.emergency.wa.gov.au/.

    We strongly encourage walkers to always use fuel stoves to cook on whenever they are walking the Bibbulmun Track. Campfires are great to sit around, but they can have an adverse effect on the environment.

  • Beedelup Falls Works

  • Closure of vehicle access points

    Location: Between Donnelly River Village and Graphite Rd

    Tom Road and Panda Road (previously Donnelly Drive) have been closed indefinitely to vehicles between the intersections of Gregory/Tom roads and Gregory/Gordon roads due to the deterioration of road bridges and lack of funding for the department to repair them.

    Vehicle points marked on the map to access the Bibbulmun Track at these points will no longer be available from 22 April 2015.

    For more details contact the Department of Parks and Wildlife office in Pemberton on (08) 9776 1207.
