What you need to bring depends on which itinerary you pick, but if you plan to spend a day walking on the Bibbulmun Track we recommend that you:

  • Wear good walking shoes, comfortable loose fitting clothes, and a waterproof/windproof jacket.
  • Take a watch, wear a sunhat and use sunscreen.
  • Pack a bottle of water (1-2 litres depending on distance, terrain and weather).

  • For some itineraries you will need to pay a National Park entry fee.  Alternatively, buy a National Parks pass online.

For more tips, visit our Day Walks – Getting Started webpage.

What kind of transport do I need?

Our itineraries are designed to be self-driving trips, so you’ll need a car or vehicle. Some of our itineraries also include a one-way day walk, which means you’ll need to organise a lift to and from the Track with a local transport operator.

What are the walks like?

The day-walks in our itineraries range from shorter walks that take a couple of hours to full-day hikes. All of the day-walks suggested require you to have a moderate to good level of fitness, so pick the walks that best suit your schedule and pace.

What accommodation is available?

You will find a variety of accommodation in every Track Town, ranging from campsites and backpackers, to hotels and chalets. We recommend booking ahead, especially during summer and school holidays when these popular towns can get very busy.

In the Track Towns, you’ll also find Walker Friendly Businesses, which support the Bibbulmun Track. These local service and accommodation providers will help you get the most out of your walk. Check out our full list of Walker Friendly Businesses.
