Realignments & Alternative Routes

  • Mazzoletti Beach alternative for southbound walkers

    Please note this alternative route may not be an option if Mazzoletti Beach is closed. Please check Diversions and other Impacts below.

    Note: Green's Pool may be closed - see the notice under Diversions and Other Impacts below.

    Depending on conditions due to high tides and the dune access being washed away, southbound walkers only may need to walk along the beach to Greens Pool and along William Bay Road (option 2) or, if conditions permit, climb the dune and walk inland to cross William Bay Road (option 1). This does not affect northbound walkers and they should not divert down William Bay Rd.

    Directions

    Option 1: follow the existing Track. Walkers should exercise caution on the steep exit at the eastern end of Mazzoletti Beach. Option 2: follow the coast to Greens Pool. A 2.7km alternative route is in place from the eastern end (Denmark side) of Mazzoletti Beach to the Bibbulmun Track crossing on William Bay Road. Hikers should exercise extreme caution when walking along William Bay Road. For more information please contact Parks and Wildlife Walpole on (08) 9840 0400.
