The Bald Head Walking Track in the Albany Region provides spectacular views of the striking coastal scenery of the Flinders Peninsula in the Torndirrup National Park near Albany, and provides walkers with a rewarding and breathtaking view of the coastline at the end of the track. The trail starts about one-hundred metres to the left of the car park in the Tondirrup National Park, at the Salmon Holes and winds over many miles of dunes until it reaches Bald Head.
The walk through the thriving bushland provides an awesome collection of native plants, and if you visit in spring you will be rewarded with a spectacular display of wildflowers. You may even see whales in and around the bays during their annual migration.
One of the exceptional attractions of this walk is the sheer magic of discovering the coastal scenery with King George Sound on one side and the Southern Ocean on the other.
Whilst it's a reasonably strenuous 16 kilometre return walk over Isthmus Hill and Limestone Head, finishing at Bald Head, the most eastern point of the park, it is well worth the effort. Once you've done it you will want to do it again....the reward and satisfaction is enormous.
The walk is about 25 min drive out of Albany and is only one of many other fantastic walks within easy read of the town.
Walkers are recommended to be reasonable fit to tackle the trail and are advised to wear suitable footwear and clothing - enclosed shoes and long shirts and trousers for protection against the many prickly bushes along way. Don't Forget to be aware of snakes; after all this is Australia.
