Bibbulmun Track Day Walk is a 12.4km, grade 2 Return hike located in Beelu National Park Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 4hrs to complete.

Summary

This out and back day walk through Beelu National Park traverses 6.2km (12.4km return) of the Bibbulmun Track. Starting from the Perth Hills National Parks Centre this walk takes you up to the Golden View Lookout for a fantastic view over Mundaring Weir.

Starting from the Perth Hills National Parks Centre, the Track winds its way through mixed jarrah and banksia forest on the side of the Helena Valley, where you get the first glimpses of Lake CY O’Connor and Mundaring Weir. You then pass the historic Mundaring Weir Hotel and follow a short section of the Golden Pipeline that carries water from Mundaring Weir to the Goldfields near Kalgoorlie. The Track crosses the Weir wall, then ascends to the Golden View Lookout, with expansive views of the surrounding area. An alternate route at the weir wall, descends to the base of the Weir wall and passes the No.1 Pumping Station Museum and is used when the gates along the weir wall are closed after hours or when maintenance works are in progress.  The 1000km 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. The Track is for walkers only and is signposted with yellow triangular markers symbolising the Waugal, the rainbow serpent of the Aboriginal Dreaming. Follow the direction of the point.
