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).
It seems that toilet at Mt Wells campsite is damaged and unusable. The Department of Environment and Conservation staff are said to be working to fix the loo as a matter of urgency and one would hope so :). The Department is advising Bibbulmun Track walkers to bury all human waste 15cm deep and at least 100m from any water source. This is a good reminder to carry a small shovel when bushwalking or cycle touring for that matter. My personal preference is the Sea-to-Summit iPood. Love that name! 🙂 Oh, as Mt Wells campsite is on the top of Mt Wells I don’t think the water source issue is a big one here. Just try to do your business a decent distance from the campsite please.
Whilst every attempt is made to keep this blog up to date with the state of play on the Bibbulmun Track walkers of the Track should also check the Department of Conservation Trail conditions and updates page before walking the Track.
If you are aware of any changes to the status of toilet or at Mt Wells Campsite please do leave a comment below.
