Stop saying “I’ll do it one day”. The time has come! Join us for an entry level overnight hike and discover the tricks of the trade under the guidance of our highly experienced instructors!

The perfect introduction to overnight bushwalking, discover the tranquillity of the bush as you explore a relatively easy section of the Bibbulmun Track only a little over an hour’s drive from Perth.

Our trek covers approximately 8km each day. We spend a fabulous night under the stars sitting around a warm, crackling campfire at our Bibbulmun Track campsite before we snuggle into our sleeping bags for the night.

Our amiable and skilled guides will impart essential knowledge about walking and camping, instilling the confidence for your future independent ventures. You will want to do more!

The best part of booking an event with us is that all profits go back to the maintenance of the Bibbulmun Track – you should be proud!

Just the right level for an introductory overnight walk. An excellent event! Richard – event participant

I thought this hike was going to be one of the more challenging hikes I had been on with people who would probably be a lot more experienced than me walking on the Track. As it turned out, I had no reason to be nervous. I had prepared well, the guides were fantastic, the other walkers friendly, the scenery beautiful and I really enjoyed the whole experience- thank you once again!

Just the very fact that the event exists is excellent. A great introduction for those new to full pack walking/camping, or those who don’t have the gear and want to have the experience. Being in the company of Elsie and Trish (guides) was fantastic – both warm and lovely people who were unobtrusive in the ways they offered support to the various individuals in the group. Beverley – event participant.

The guides, Trish and Graham were excellent. They knew just how to work with the group. They judged very well when to step back and let us get on with it and at the same time recognised the time to step in and offer up helpful information. I feel so fortunate that people Like Trish and Graham are willing to give up their time to help others build their own confidence. (Roy)

Hi all! I’ve been walking the Bibbulmun Track, and various other trails around WA, for the last 15 years. One of the best things about being a volunteer guide is being able to help people of all levels experience the joys of the Australian bush. I’m passionate about bringing the outdoors to younger generations in order to facilitate a connection to nature that they can enjoy in the years to come.
