After more than 20 years operating in the city, the Bibbulmun Track Foundation is looking for a new home.
Our current office has been generously provided by our sponsor Mountain Designs. It was great synergy being above an outdoor equipment store and this free space in a central location was not only convenient for the thousands of walkers that came through our door but helped us to become a stable organisation.
We have to vacate our office by Monday 5 February. As such, we will not re-open to the public on 22 January as planned, as we will be packing up with the assistance of our office volunteers. We will continue to respond to emails, phone calls and website enquiries - and will process website orders although there may be slight delays.
As we have less than a month to vacate we are putting this call out to all our contacts in case anyone knows of a business or organisation that might house us in their premises, sponsor our accommodation in a suitable building or sub-let at a reasonable rate.
Although time is tight we are ideally looking for a long-term solution - but any temporary accommodation will obviously be considered.
We currently have three rooms:
- Front office (includes the retail component, hire gear and 4 workstations) 35m2
- Centre office (main business operations with 6 workstations, meeting table and filing cabinets) 48m2
- Back office (meeting room, merchandise stock, 1 work station, computer server,) 18m2
That all comes to 101m2 if we were to find something to replicate what we have. Of course, we are looking at any options that might be viable for us and at a minimum we would require no less than around 70m2.
If you have anything to offer, please contact us.
The Bibbulmun Track team.
