I was a little nervous coming into this hike as it 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!

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.

    Hi! I’ve been walking the Track since the late 90’s, and like many, started slowly along the big hill curve of learning. A warning: the Bib is addictive. To me, being in the bush is a form of meditation. The whole Track is my favourite section but I must admit to being very fond of sitting on top of Mount Cooke, watching the eagles circle the skinks, and just soaking it all in. I enjoy sharing my love of the Track with novice walkers so hope to see you out there soon.

    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.

    Hi everyone. I have become a member of the Foundation in 2016, after my family and I had been walking various parts of the Track and we were considering an end-to-end walk together. I still haven’t done an end-to-end walk but aim to do so in the future. I have walked and hiked in other parts of Australia and Europe, and hope that after completing my training as a volunteer guide I will be able to introduce people to the Track - making it an exciting and memorable experience. It is a great pleasure to be able to be outdoors and connect with nature and people.
