Albany to Denmark (85 km/53 mi)

Beginning Friday March 30, 2018, I flew from Denver to Los Angeles to Melbourne to Perth to Albany. On Monday April 2, beginning on the south coast of Western Australia (WA), I commenced my 40-day hike of the Bibbulmun Track from the Southern Terminus in Albany.

Gradually, I’ll pass through the 9 Track towns where I’ll do my resupplies. I also make a point to stop in for fresh fish and chips and a meat pie! Every time I get to one of these towns I stay in a YHA (Youth Hostel of Australia). In between the towns (usually 4-5 days) I stay in 3-sides huts similar to the Appalachian Trail (AT). In fact, the Bibbulmun Track was inspired by an Australian man who came to America and hiked the AT and envisioned a similar long-distance trail for Australia. The shelters were in large part built by prison inmates as a way of putting them to hard, productive labor.

The trail is 1000 km or about 600 miles. I have now completed 1 of 9 sections.

  1. Thank-you for the update. I like the boardwalk. It helps protect the environment. But I am tired from all the miles you have put in.

    Take care
