Bibbulmun Track (WA) - Marginata Rd to Brookton Hwy

A relatively easy sectional day walk on the Bibbulmun Track, this mostly flat walk leads from the little known access point on Marginata Rd to Brookton Hwy. The large rock formation known as Abyssinia Rock is the highlight of this section that otherwise passes through a somewhat dull, low-lying swampy area and scrappy Jarrah woodland. One of the least essential sections of the track - its easiness is its main draw.

Bibbulmun Track (WA) - Mundaring Weir to Ball Creek

A relatively leisurely sectional day walk on the Bibbulmun Track, this short return walk leads from Mundaring Weir through the area's historic precinct. Taking in views of Lake CY O'Connor before heading to the Perth Hills Discovery Centre and the Bibbulmun's second campsite at Ball Creek, a return walk is rewarded with a stop-in for lunch at the Mundaring Weir Hotel. An excellent beginner's walk.

Bibbulmun Track (WA) - Sullivan Rock to Powerline Rd

One of the best sectional day walks of the Bibbulmun Track in the Darling Scarp, this walk leads walkers from the massive low-lying granite formation known as Sullivan Rock to Mt Cooke - the scarp's highest peak. With stunning views from the summit and across the various mountains and hills, this is one of the best day walk sections near Perth, conveniently located in easy reach from Albany Highway.
