The Parks and Wildlife Service of the Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions has commenced a significant upgrade project on the iconic Bald Head Walk Trail in Torndirrup National Park.

The trail is a spectacular, very popular but challenging 12.5km return walk traversing the ridge line of the Flinders Peninsula, providing stunning views of the Southern Ocean around to King George Sound and the City of Albany.

The project team has designed a sustainable, long-lasting trail surface treatment that delivers on the quality trail experience that trail users have come to expect from the Department.

The Bald Head walk trail, and the nearby Jimmy Newells car park, will be closed during construction and are signposted accordingly. The Department requests that visitors do not access these areas for their and the work crew's safety who have to manage these incursions and any impacts to the works site.

Construction is expected to be completed by September 2022.
