This is one of many day walks possible on the Bibbulmun Track, which stretches 1000km from Kalamunda on the outskirts of Perth, to the historic town of Albany on the south coast.
This day walk starts from Lake Ballingall and Harris Dam. You can walk across the dam wall to view the overflow during winter, and then walk through the parks and gardens to the picnic area. From the dam the Track enters mixed forest of jarrah and marri, with an understorey of many flowering shrubs and orchids. It takes around an hour to reach the Harris Dam Campsite, the perfect spot for lunch.
If staying overnight, the shelter sleeps up to 12 - but always take a tent in case its full. Groups of 8 or more should register with the Bibbulmun Track Foundation to prevent overcrowding.
The Bibbulmun Track offers a wide range of experiences, from a gentle stroll to enjoy the peace and beauty of the natural environment, to an epic eight week adventure camping out at the 49 campsites and enjoying the hospitality of nine communities along the way. Those that walk every step of the way can be registered as end-to-enders.

We love to hear from people who've been on our Western Australian trails, so it would be most appreciated it if you wanted to leave a review.
Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
