Bibbulmun Track - Harvey Access Point

Long Gully Bridge

Bibbulmun Track access is available at Harvey. The overall distance from the Harvey Visitor Centre to the Long Gully trestle bridge ( the Bibbulmun Track drop off point) is 49.4 kms.

To access the Bibbulmun Track from the Harvey Visitor Centre, turn left into South Western Highway, travel south approximately 1km and turn left into Weir Road. You are now travelling east. From the Harvey Dam turnoff the road changes name from Weir Road to the Harvey-Quindanning Road. From this turnoff  to the Stirling Dam turnoff, it is approximately 6.8kms. From the Stirling Dam turnoff, travel 3.6kms and this is where the bitumen ends and the gravel begins. Travel along the Harvey-Quindanning Road for 35.5kms until you see on your left, the historic and wonderful Long Gully railway trestle bridge 
The Long Gully Bridge offers good vehicle access for the first time south of Dwellingup and is the starting point if you are walking the section from Harvey to Collie.*  Look for the yellow triangular markers, symbolising the 'Waugul', the rainbow serpent of the Aboriginal Dreaming.

The famous Bibbulmun Track stretches from Perth to Albany for 967km. Approximately every 20km along the trail there are campsites, tent sites, huts, sleeping platforms, toilets and water tanks. It is advised to bring your own fuel stove in case of fire bans etc. Don't forget something to light the stove with or you may have to rub sticks together to get it started.

The track is marked with triangular yellow markers but it is advised to carry a map with you and some insect repellent.

* In February 2015, the historic Long Gully trestle bridge, built in 1949 and 128 metres long, was destroyed by bushfire. The bridge provided the only viable crossing point of the Murray River for walkers on the Bibbulum Track. The bridge was considered an outstanding example of an early railway bridge and was built by Western Australian Government Railways and was an intergal part of the rail network from the Serpentine-Jarrahdale area to Dwellingup region.
