General Comments

A wonderfully diverse track that is beautifully maintained by a band of fabulous volunteers, A huge thank you to all involved. When I tell people that is free - they are amazed.

Food/Supplies Comments

Supermarkets are the same anymore - instead of doing my weekly shopping, I am always scanning the shelves for hiker-friendly food.

Favourite Section

Donnelly River to Pemberton . Favourite campsite is Chadorra.


Meeting some wonderful friends and then walking many sections with them. Having a huge sense of achievement with everyday hiked. I liked the solitude, the beauty of the Track and knowing my personal fitness has improved.

Personal Reactions

The Bibbulmun isn’t difficult overall but some parts will be testing. It does test endurance though. I have gained enormous confidence on this track and this has provided the foundation to tackle many other hikes locally and overseas.


Fabulous! My most interesting encounter was with a full grown wild pig. We didn’t have the pig procedure manual with us so had to work it out as we navigated past it.

Your Best Equipment

Jetboil Minimo, Luci solar light, Pacer poles, MSR Hubba Hubba (my indulgence).

Your Worst Equipment

Steripen , a leaking tent that was new.

Advice for Others

Look after your feet well, don’t hike in summer, and carry lots of water. Enjoy every step.
