Bushwalkers planning their next adventure are invited to plan their trip with a new website promising to report on track conditions.

WA Sports and Recreation minister Tony Buti MLA said it would be a valuable resource to bushwalkers wanting to attempt one of the world’s best tracks.

He said the new website would greatly improve resources available for bushwalkers planning on hiking the track.

“Western Australia is currently enjoying a huge resurgence in bushwalking, with participation increasing by more than 45 per cent in the four years to June 2020,” Mr Buti said.

Lotterywest funded the website with an $81,400 grant from lottery west and maintained by the Bibbulmun Track Foundation.
