Walpole to Denmark | Distance: 126km

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.


    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.

  • William Bay Infrastructure Renewal Project

    Location: William Bay National Park

    Park infrastructure work is being carried out in William Bay National Park.

    Walkers should be aware of heavy vehicles when crossing William Bay Rd.

    There will be no vehicle access to both the Track crossing on William Bay Rd nor Green's Pool from 3 February 2020 and throughout the construction works.

    Therefore walkers will not be able to use the alternative route via Green's Pool and William Bay Rd mentioned on this page and in the Guidebook.

    The park will be fully closed to visitors during this time period, however the marked Bibbulmun Track and campsite will remain open to walkers.

    Walkers MUST remain on the Bibbulmun Track during this time and not use Madfish Bay Rd, the Munda Biddi Trail or enter the construction site.

    For your safety follow all signage and instructions from Parks and Wildlife and other construction staff.

    Construction works are expected to be completed by the end of June 2020.
