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

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.
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)

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.
Hi everyone. I have been member of the Foundation since 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 completed my end-to-end walk but aim to do so in the future. As a keen hiker, I have walked and hiked several trails in Australia and overseas. My aim as a volunteer guide is to introduce people to the Track - making it an enjoyable, exciting and memorable experience whilst also sharing some of my experiences as a maintenance volunteer with the Bibbulmun Track Foundation. It is a great pleasure to be able to be outdoors and connect with nature and people.
