The perfect introduction to overnight bushwalking, discover the tranquillity of the bush as you explore a relatively easy section of the Bibbulmun Track.
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.

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.
In an effort to walk in the bush, I joined Bushwalkers WA in 2006. The love of wildness must be in my blood, because the first day walk I did in the bush had got me hooked. Since then I have walked here and there, interstate and overseas. I enjoy overnight multi-day walks most, and have managed to tick some of the well-known tracks in Australia, New Zealand, and Europe off my bucket list; but the track that I enjoyed most is our Bibbulmun Track. Moving along on it, I get a sense of freedom, and a degree of peace and tranquillity that is more than I was able to obtain from any other trails I have walked. I don’t know a long distant track that is like our Bibbulmun that is so well marked, with water and beautiful shelters located at comfortable distance intervals, and the use of all it has on offer is free. A track that has given me so much joy deserves my little effort in helping to keep it free for all to access and enjoy. I appreciate the opportunity to become a Track maintenance volunteer and volunteer guide for the Bibbulmun track Foundation.
