Absolutely loved it! Learning about dehydrating food, food prep for hiking and the hands on experience with the trangia was just what I needed to give me an idea of what will work for me out on the track. The people were lovely and Steve did a great job of facilitating the event. Extremely enjoyable. The event had a great feel, and Steve's enthusiasm was refreshing. Loved it! I will definitely sign up as a member again. Kate.

    Hi folks. I have been with the Foundation since 1997, when I first joined as a member and maintenance volunteer. I wanted to get involved in the 'new' Track after getting terribly lost on the 'old' Bibbulmun Track. From there I began leading walks and then came on staff in the office in 1999 as Events Manager and Lead Guide. I love walking and have done a few end-to-ends. I really get a kick out of sharing this passion with everyone. I am still a volunteer and look after Nerang Campsite. Come and join me on this event!

    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.

    Hi folks, I first got involved with the Bibbulmun Track as part of the group that helped plan the new alignment in the mid-90s and I was honoured to be the Founding Chairman of the BTF in 1997. As the owner of the WA Mountain Designs stores, I became the first corporate sponsor of the Foundation and helped to find its first home in the MD building in Hay St. I was lucky enough to be the second guide on the 10th Anniversary Walk in 2008. I have enjoyed many walks on various sections of the Bibb, both day walks and overnighters. I also spent many years trekking all over the world including in Nepal, Bhutan, Patagonia and many walking holidays in Europe and the UK. But I think the Bibbulmun is one of the best trails in the world and a wonderful asset for WA and really deserves the moniker of ‘world class’. I have always enjoyed encouraging and helping others to get out on the Track, no matter what age or experience. There is something personal and unique about spending time in the West Australian bush. I was privileged to be made a Member of the Order of Australia in 2020 for my work on the Bibbulmun and I still volunteer as a Board member and a guide.
