  • End-to-Enders Picnic

    21 October 2014

    In March 2015, we will be holding our third End-to-Enders Picnic since the opening of the new alignment of the Bibbulmun Track in 1998.

    Walkers who have registered their End-to-End will receive an invite by email (or post if they reside in WA and have no email address) in the coming months. 

    If you are an End-to-Ender and have not yet registered your walk there is still time to do so.  Please visit our End-to-Enders registration page on information on how to do so. 

    If you are not sure whether you registered your walk, then you can log onto your profile using your email address that we have for you and your password (if you don't have a profile then it is possible you are not registered). For information on how to log onto your profile please visit our website help page. You can also update your details there and manage subscriptions.

    There are a limited number of tickets available and there is no admission fee but only walkers who have registered their End-to-End will receive the invite. There will be limited tickets available for friends or family of registered walkers.

    Please log into your profile and update any details that may have changed.

    We look forward to seeing End-to-Enders in March. Keep an eye out for your invite with all the details.

     

    Why do we need people to register their End-to-End walk?

    The Foundation relies on funding from various sources including sponsorship and grants. Access to funding is often dependent on demonstrating how many people use the Bibbulmun Track. Registering your end-to-end can assist us in attracting funds to ensure the Bibbulmun Track remains a long distance walk trail of international significance and quality.

  • Bibbulmun Track User Survey

    24 September 2014

    The Foundation is conducting a survey to assist with the future planning, management and maintenance of the Track. The survey will be conducted over the next few months. However, walkers may only complete it once and that must be within 4 weeks of walking on the Track.

    So if you've been out on the Track within the past 4 weeks please complete our survey now, or if you're planning a walk over the next few months we'd love to hear from you then. Thank you for your input!

    We will require volunteers to assist with the survey out on the Track in the Kalamunda/Mundaring area, Karri Gully, Tree Top Walk and Albany areas.  If you are interested in helping, please contact us.

    Click here to take the survey.

    If you have any questions regarding the survey, please contact the Recreation and Trails Unit at DPaW.

  • Quiz Night - Huge success!

    28 July 2014

    Over two hundred members and their friends pitted their wits at the Foundation’s Christmas in July Quiz Night.
    The event was a great success with lots of laughter, serious contemplation, fun and games and much wrinkling of brows!
    The evening saw many winners, and Chris Lee was delighted with his $300 gift voucher from Mountain Designs, part of our May Member Madness promotion. All members who booked and paid for their quiz table before the 31st May automatically went into the draw.
    Our next major fundraising project involves the restoration of the Long Gully Bridge near Dwellingup, and we are delighted to announce that the Quiz Night raised a grand total of $6,400. These funds will be used to assist in the restoration of this historic landmark, which carries Bibbulmun Track walkers across the Murray River.

    We would like to thank the following organisations and individuals who donated prizes for our raffle and silent auction.  Their support is deeply appreciated.
