Trails: Long Distance

Western Australia's long-distance trails include the Bibbulmun Track, one of the world’s great long distance walk trails, stretching nearly 1000 kilometres from Kalamunda, in the Perth hills, to the historic town of Albany on the south coast. The Track features 49 campsites along the way with timber shelters and water tanks and passes through nine communities for re-supply.

Another iconic walk track is the 135km Cape to Cape Track which runs along the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge between the lighthouses of Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin in the Margaret River region. It features spectacular coastal and forest scenery, a fascinating geology and history, and wonderful wildflowers in spring.

Bushwalkers from around the world come to WA to walk the Bibbulmun and Cape to Cape Tracks.

WA is also home to the world's longest off-road mountain bike trail - the Munda Biddi.   The Trail meanders through scenic river valleys and the  magnificent forests of WA’s South West. Joined by purpose built track, the Munda Biddi uses a network of bush tracks, firebreaks, and disused railway formations and has sections suitable for cyclists of all ages and experience levels.

The world class Bibbulmun Track stretches almost 1000kms through WA's south west.
