This 21km walk will begin from Brookton Highway and head north to Mt Dale Campsite via the Brookton Campsite led by trained Foundation volunteers.
The walk follows old rail formations and forestry track near Plunket Rd and views of Mt Dale itself can be seen before reaching Mt Dale Campsite.
Brookton Campsite is one of the latest to be built with rammed earth. Both campsites have water and a toilet (byo toilet paper).

Hi everyone. I have become a member of the Foundation in 2016, after my family and I had been walking various parts of the Track and we were considering an end-to-end walk together. I still haven’t done an end-to-end walk but aim to do so in the future. I have walked and hiked in other parts of Australia and Europe, and hope that after completing my training as a volunteer guide I will be able to introduce people to the Track - making it an exciting and memorable experience. It is a great pleasure to be able to be outdoors and connect with nature and people.
During the week a mild mannered public servant who will take any opportunity to get out on the Track, it’s a far better existence than my previous life sent deep under the Worlds Oceans - the scenery not great!! I have been walking the Track now for 15 years and have completed a sectional end to end a few years ago I also am a maintenance volunteer for the Mt Cuthbert and Mt Vincent sections.
Hi, Karen here. I have always had a love of walking in the bush, particularly looking at wildflowers, but have only in recent years discovered the Bibbulmun Track. As many have told me, it is addictive and I am now passing on my new found passion by volunteering as a guide. I haven’t walked the entire track yet but my favourite so far is around the Canning River where it amazes me how much the vegetation and soil can change in so short a time. Hope to see you out there soon!
