An excellent chance to enhance your compass and map reading abilities awaits you. During this engaging yet more intensive weekend, we’ll delve into additional theory, with a special focus on practical application during a Rogaine.

This experience will teach you to navigate extended distances, including night-time navigation through unmarked terrain. There are no marked trails where we go, providing a unique challenge.

Enjoy vehicle-based camping on both Friday and Saturday nights, and be ready to traverse approximately 20km throughout the entire weekend. What makes this even more special is that we set up camp at our base camp. This means you don’t have to carry your overnight gear! We walk and navigate with only a day pack!

The best part of booking an event with us is that all profits go back to the maintenance of the Bibbulmun Track – you should be proud!

Included perks:

  • Expert advice from the Bibb Track specialists.
  • Trained and experienced Bibb Track guides with emergency devices.
  • Theory session on Friday evening on how to use a compass and read a map.
  • Plenty of practical tuition and tips before head into the bush.
  • Comprehensive notes, and topographic map.
  • Dinner Saturday night, breakfast on Sunday.
  • Rogaine entry fee.
  • Regular safety patrols and water refill stations out in the field.
  • Detailed gear checklist.
  • Equipment hire, including stove, mat, sleeping bag, and tent. Pick up and return from our conveniently located office in West Perth.
  • Compass hire if required.
  • Freedom to develop and navigate your own route if you feel skilled and confident enough.
  • Great fun in a social atmosphere.

I was very nervous before attending this event, but I was always made to feel at ease especially with walking through scrub at night. Such a great way to get my confidence through the roof, not to mention how much fun we had. Do this event! – event participant

You don’t need to Get Lost with Steve (the one-day course) as a prerequisite, but it may be helpful as that course covers much more of the basic theory needed. 

Exact location unknown until the week prior but usually held in bushland no more than 3hrs drive from Perth. If possible, you should plan to leave Perth at 2.30pm. But if you can’t, that’s ok, we will bring you up to speed very quickly on anything you miss!

Hi all! I’ve been walking the Bibbulmun Track, and various other trails around WA, for the last 15 years. One of the best things about being a volunteer guide is being able to help people of all levels experience the joys of the Australian bush. I’m passionate about bringing the outdoors to younger generations in order to facilitate a connection to nature that they can enjoy in the years to come.

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, 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 interstate and overseas and feel so lucky to have the Bibbulmun Track as a fantastic escape to nature right on our doorstep.
I’ve managed several end-to-ends and have enjoyed many stretches on multiple occasions. I have met a number of wonderful people along the way and hope to be able to experience walking with you soon.

I like to hike! I enjoy the sights, the smells and the sounds of being in the bush.

I think the Bibbulmun Track is fabulous as it is so readily accessible and user friendly. I have completed a number of end-to-ends, both continuous and sectional. I get out on the Track as often as I can.

I have hiked here and abroad and can honestly say there is no place like home.

If you share my enthusiasm come hike with me.

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 a member since 2009 when I completed an end-to-end through June and July. This inspired me to continue walking. Since then I’ve enjoyed many hikes short and long across the world like; NZ’s Great Walks, the Tour de Mont Blanc, and The Haute Route across the Swiss Alps. I look forward to many more. I hope to see you out there. The Bibbulmun Track is unique and I’d love to share my knowledge of it with you.

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!
