Events in honour of the 25th anniversary of one of the world’s great long-distance walk trails will be held across the South West from mid July as part of a two month-long celebration. The Bibbulmun Track’s silver jubilee celebrations will start in Kalamunda with a special ceremony on July 14 where end-to-end walkers will begin their journey south, arriving at the Southern Terminus in Albany eight weeks later. Along the 1000km trail through towering karri and tingle forests and beautiful national parks will be several community events, including in Dwellingup, Collie, Balingup, Donnelly River, Pemberton, Northcliffe, Walpole, and Denmark. Donnelly River Village will be the location of the half-time celebration on August 11, where community members can cheer on the walkers as they arrive at the halfway point and commemorate the occasion with food and live music in a party-like atmosphere. From parades with costumes to live-music and sausage sizzle celebrations, there are any different ways community members can get involved in the historic celebrations. The final day of celebrations will culminate on September 13 in Albany, as fitting for the vibrant town that hosted the official opening of the track on the same day in 1998.
