Realignments & Alternative Routes

  • Piesse Brook

    The Track has been realigned in this area because of bad erosion and unsafe steps.


    At 3.2km in the north to south Track notes, when you reach the gravel road (Schipp Rd), do not go straight ahead. Turn left, following the gravel road, cross Piesse Brook and then turn right up the steps. The realignment is well marked. Walkers re-join the Track at the top of the ridge. The realignment is approx. 500 metres.

Turn right toward the wall and then follow markers ascending steps and an old railway formation up to the top to re-join the Bibbulmun Track.

    From Gringer Creek campsite follow the marked trail in front of the shelter. From the roadhouse, cross the side street (which runs off Albany Highway) and look for the trail marker and walk trail to the north.

  • North Banister roadhouse

    Location: 1km from Gringer Creek campsite

    The Threeways roadhouse (tavern and restaurant) at North Bannister is open from 7am to 7pm daily. The petrol service station is open similar hours.

    Please note that the roadhouse and the service station are two separate businesses. 

    Food parcels

    Parcels will be charged $10/parcel. $5 for any additional parcel for the same person. 

    Walkers will need a valid ID to collect. Parcels will be stored by the roadhouse/tavern for 21 days once received. 

    Walkers and the Bibbulmun Track Foundation have been told by Threeways that parcels can be posted to the roadhouse but this has proved unreliable and we ask that walkers do not post items to them despite any guarantees from the roadhouse.

    The reality is that parcels posted to them get sent to the Boddington Post Office. Australia Post do not deliver to the roadhouse itself. Given the roadhouse staff do not frequently visit the Boddington Road House, the food parcels can sit there for weeks.

    The Foundation has reached out to Threeways a number of times unsuccessfully to rectify this situation.

    For the time being parcels should be delivered in person by the walker, trail angel or friend/relatives.

    Contact the roadhouse on (08) 9884 1070 or via social media for further information.


    Methylated spirits for trangia type stoves is sold at the service station along with refreshments and food typically available at a petrol station.

    The roadhouse is looking at stocking gas canisters and other food supplies for walkers. When this becomes available and prooves to be a reliable service, it will be posted here.

    Showers and accommodation are not currently available.

  • Blasting near Mt Wells and White Horse Hills campsites

    Location: Between White Horse Hills and Chadoora campsites south of the Albany Highway and north of Dwellingup/

    Newmont Boddington Gold advise that blasting adjacent to Mt Wells campsite will take place each week until further notice. Although the blasting will not impact upon the Track, given the proximity of the blasting to the campsite and the Track, walkers should be aware of the noise. The blasts typically occur between 1pm and 3pm.

    Walkers should also note that ALCOA are blasting on the western side of the Track though a greater distance away from the Track. These blasts are closer to White Horse Hills campsite than MT Wells campsite.

    Walkers wishing greater serenity should avoid the section of Track from North Bannister to Dwellingup as mine workings can be heard 24hrs a day to varying degrees from all three campsites (White Horse Hills, Mt Wells and Chadoora).
