Booking Form

Head down to Balingup for a two-day guided walking break.

Carrying only your day pack, we walk 40km over the two days.

We set off very early on Saturday morning and begin our walk in a small patch of karri forest. Then we follow rail formations and walk through mixed jarrah forest on our way to the Blackwood River.

At the end of the first day you are transported back to Balingup to make your way to your accommodation.

On Sunday we meet in Balingup and then transferred back to where you left off, tackling the ascent to Blackwood campsite, walking back with the guides into Balingup.

You can choose and book your own accommodation in town and we recommend that you arrive on Friday night so you can be ready for the early departure on Saturday morning.


Includes guides and bus transfer to start of walk and back to Balingup both days. Does not include transport to Balingup, food or accommodation.

We strongly suggest that you book your own accommodation for both nights before making this booking. Note that refunds will not be made if you fail to secure accommodation.

Walkers must be in Balingup town centre on Saturday morning for a 6.30am departure.

We suggest that you visit the Balingup Visitor Centre's website for accommodation options.

    Hi, I have been bitten by the hiking bug and enjoy anything from a leisurely jaunt to a multiple day hike through our wonderful bush. I have enjoyed walking and hiking in many areas having completed the Cape to cape, the Great Ocean Road walk along with a couple of rambles in the UK, the most memorable being the Cumbria Way through the Lakes District. The Bibbulmun track is a fantastic escape to nature right on our doorstep. I’ve managed a couple of end to ends and have enjoyed many stretches on multiple occasions. I have met a number of great people along the way and hope to be able to experience walking with you soon.

    Hi there, Isabel here. I've been a member since 2004 when I walked the Track end-to-end in the wettest August ever! I am also a maintenance volunteer looking after Frankland River Campsite near Walpole. I love being a volunteer guide and being able to share my passion with others.
