The perfect introduction to overnight bushwalking, discover the tranquillity of the bush as you explore a relatively easy section of the Bibbulmun Track.
We walk approximately 8km each day and camp out under canvas at a typical Bibbulmun Track campsite. Our experienced and friendly guides will teach you all you need to know about walking and camping and give you the confidence you need to venture out on your own. Hire gear available at no extra cost on this overnight Trek. 1¼hr from Perth.
There is something special about being in the bush at night. Judy - 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)
This event is suitable for the practice journey for the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh's International Award.
Thank you! I am using your guided walks to get my confidence up for an eventual solo end to end and I really appreciate the time and effort that you go to provide the service that you do. (Kelli)
Includes comprehensive planning night, trip preparation manual, map, experienced guides and equipment hire. BYO food. Own transport to walk start.
Just the right level for an introductory overnight walk. An excellent event! Richard – event participant
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.

Hi! I have been interested in the bush since an early age and have walked small sections of the Track since its inception. Early years were spent taking family and Scout Groups on weekends camping and bush walking. I maintain a section south of Collie and walking the Track has given me a great deal of enjoyment. I was part of the 10th Anniversary Walk when I completed my first end-to-end. Since this time I have spent many hours, volunteering in the office and leading walks to ensure others know and enjoy the Bibbulmun Track as I do. My favourite is to catch a bus and spend my friendship with the bush for some days and slowly come back, to where it may take me!
During the week a mild mannered public servant who will take any opportunity to get out on the Track, it’s a far better existence than my previous life sent deep under the Worlds Oceans - the scenery not great!! I have been walking the Track now for 15 years and have completed a sectional end to end a few years ago I also am a maintenance volunteer for the Mt Cuthbert and Mt Vincent sections.
My acquaintance with the Bibbulmun Track goes back to the mid 1980s. We walked most of the old alignment. On blistered feet and aching legs we learnt valuable early lessons about hiking. The children came along and my walking adventures adapted to suit their little legs. As they have moved onto their own adventures I found more time to return to my own, including walking the Bibb Track. The Bibb Track really is a world class asset. People from all over the world come here to walk it. I know. I have spoken with many out on the Track. I am keen, as a Bibb Track vollie, to share some of my passion, knowledge and skills with others who can then enjoy our wilderness for themselves and in turn share it with others.
