This updated notice from the Department of Environment and Conservation was published on April 29, 2013. It seems that there is a small problem with drop-box toilet (dunny) at the Mt Wells campsite on the Bibbulmun Track. Mt Wells Campsite is located between North Banister and Dwellingup and is the campsite in between White Horse Hills (northern end) and Chadora (southern side).
The Department of Environment and Conservation has advised that effective May 3, 2013 campfire bans affecting the northern section of the Bibbulmun Track between Kalamunda and Walpole have been lifted and campfires are now allowed as long as a fire ring is in place at the campsite.
