 The Bibbulmun Track is one of the world’s great long distance walk trails It stretches almost 1000km from Kalamunda in the Perth Hills, to the Albany Region, winding through the heart of the scenic South West of Western Australia.  This long distance walking path running from Kalamunda, east of Perth, to Albany, is a distance of 963 km. (The name comes from the Bibbulmun, or Noongar people.) There is also a parallel bicycle trail, called the Munda Biddi Trail, for part of the distance

The Denmark to Albany section is approx 85 kms long, but there are many access points where you can pick up the track and take a walk/hike.
