Dwellingup

Dwellingup to Collie | Distance: 128km

Realignments & Alternative Routes

  • Murray River bridge crossing

    The new bridge crossing across the Murray River has been open since 2017. Walkers should follow the new alignment which is now clearly marked between Dookanelly Campsite and Harvey-Quindanning Rd and on the current Map 2 – Dwellingup.

    Directions

    The old alignment between Dookanelly Campsite and the destroyed Long Gully Bridge, marked on old (pre-2017) Bibbulmun Track Map 2 - Dwellingup, is permanently closed. Walkers should ensure they have the latest map .

Diversions & Other Impacts

  • Track closure due to bushfire

    Location: Dwellingup to Collie

    The Bibbulmun Track between Harvey Quindanning Rd and Harris Dam Picnic Area Car Park remains closed.

    Possum Springs, Yourdamung and Harris Dam Campsites are therefore also still closed.

    There is no diversion.

    We are happy to report that none of the campsites were impacted by the fire, though the Track has been affected.

    Two small bridges require repair and this work will be underway soon.

    It will remain closed until all safety checks, construction and remarking has been completed.

    Please avoid this section. Aside from it being highly unpleasant in the current conditions, it is not safe.

    (updated 6/02/20)

  • Campfire bans in place

    Location: Dwellingup to Collie

    Campfire bans are now in place at all campsites between Dwellingup and Collie.

    Walkers are not permitted to light any campfires or wood operated stoves. 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.
