General Comments

Unbelievable resource provided free for all to use and enjoy. A big shout out to all the track volunteers for making the bibbulmun what it is.

Favourite Section

Kalamunda to Albany!  But Walpole-Nornalup National Park takes some beating.

Personal Reactions

An amazing adventure.  Physically and mentally challenging but so lucky to have the time to spend with my son and track buddy Freddy.  Would do it all again in a whisper.

Advice for Others

Take time to enjoy how the ecology changes, slowly but surely, as you walk from N-S or vis versa. Stop frequently and have plenty of treats. Be good to the track angels,  you will need them,  especially at the top end when there are no towns to re-supply.
