For those attending Albany, due to the recent fires, South West H'way between Manjimup and Walpole, is closed, for about 3 weeks. So if you were planning on travelling through that way check to see if it open, or choose an alternate route.
Cheers

Travelling in "Seymour and Wanda", to wander and see more.

The good news, particularly for Walpole residents and weekenders, is that the South West Highway is expected to be open by tomorrow (Friday) night. Speed restrictions will be in place and there will likely be smoke in the area.

If convenient, best to avoid this road, particularly while emergency services are still working in the area. It may be OK for the way home again after the Albany muster.

Another local muster we miss out on, this time due to no tow vehicle.

Might be prudent to avoid the SW Hwy near Walpole. There are more fires now.

We will probably go via Muir Highway. People working in the area do not need added through traffic. Depending on the reports, we may return via Walpole. We usually so it in that order, with Muir Highway being the quicker route at the best of times, although both are much the same length.

While I hope not for long, we have another fire closing the South West Highway. The South West Highway is closed between Seaton Ross Road and Palgarup township, between Bridgetown and Manjimup, due to a bushfire which started this afternoon. A lot of smoke on the southern horizon. This is the second fire in Bridgetown Shire this week. Our daughter came though not long before the fire started; lucky to get home.
