In May 2016, a section of the Bruce Trail in the Dufferin Hi-Lands was twinned with the Bibbulmun Track in Australia.
The Bibbulmun Track opened its section of our Friendship Trail, from Balingup to Donnelly River Village, on November 1, 2015,
The Bibbulmun Track in Western Australia stretches 1000 kilometres from Kalamunda in the Perth Hills to the historic town of Albany on the south coast.
From karri forest to coastal heathlands the Track traverses some of the most beautiful and wild areas of the south west of Australia which is one of the world's biodiversity hotspots.
Passing through nine rural towns and many popular scenic spots, walkers can enjoy day walks and the hospitality of local accommodation or embark on a six to eight week hike from end-to-end.
The Track is for walkers only with 49 campsites spaced a day's walk apart. Each campsite has a three-sided timber shelter, dunny (toilet), rainwater tank, picnic tables and tent sites.
