General Comments

Previously did some sections of the “old” Bibbulmun Track in the late 80’s - early 90’s. Some sections of the “new’ Track done in 2009 & 2013. Finally had the time to do the whole Track in one go!

Food/Supplies Comments

Carried two weeks worth of food and supplies from Kalamunda to Dwellingup. After that we resupplied in the towns.

Favourite Section

No favourites, they were all good!

Highlights

The sheer variety of landscapes and natural environments. The karri and red tingle forests. The views from the hills and high points along the south coast.

Personal Reactions

A fantastic hike, made all the better by being able to share it with my brother.

Wildlife

Snakes, lizards, turtles, frogs, feral pigs, feral cat, birds.

Your Best Equipment

Stockpile boot socks (85% wool).

Your Worst Equipment

AM/FM/SW radio with DSP - useless.

Advice for Others

Take your time - stay two days in every town.
