A sec­tion of the Bib­bul­mun Track re­mains closed af­ter May’s Torndirrup Na­tional Park fire, with a camp site de­stroyed by the blaze.

The bush­fire burned 620ha in­clud­ing the south­ern sec­tion of track near the camp site, be­tween Sand­patch and Al­bany,.

A Depart­ment of Bio­di­ver­sity, Con­ser­va­tion and At­trac­tion spokes­woman said the camp site would re­main closed in­def­i­nitely.

Im­ages from Bib­bul­mun Track Foun­da­tion web­site show the rem­nants of Sand­patch camp­ing site, lo­cated 13km from the Mut­ton­bird camp site.

The Sand­patch, the Bib­bul­mun Track’s south­ern­most camp site, and Mut­ton­bird camp sites were built in 2012 to re­place the Hid­den Val­ley camp site which was re­lin­quished as part of the Al­bany Wind Farm ex­pan­sion. Ear­lier this year, in Jan­uary, the Bib­bul­mun Track’s He­lena camp site in Mun­dar­ing was de­stroyed by a de­lib­er­ately lit fire.
