The perfect opportunity to put your compass and map reading skills into practice!
On this fun but more intensive weekend we go through some more theory but this time the practical aspect is out on a Rogaine.
You will learn to navigate longer distances and will also learn to do it at night, finding your way through the bush – there are no trails!
Camp out on both Friday and Saturday night and be prepared to walk around 20km over the entire weekend.
You don’t need to Get Lost with Steve (the one-day course) as a prerequisite, but it would be helpful as that course covers much more of the basic theory needed.
Location unknown until the week prior but generally within around 2.5 hours of Perth.
Includes entry fee to Rogaine and a 2016 membership with the WA Rogaining Association, some theory and plenty of practical tuition, dinner Saturday night, breakfast and lunch on Sunday. Own navigation compass required. Location unknown until the week prior.
- Your Event Guide/s:
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!
Hello! I am a retired “ex-schoolie” who was introduced to the Track in 2003 and have been volunteering with the BTF since 2004. Starting as a maintenance volunteer for Canning campsite, I became a volunteer guide and an office volunteer. I have completed five end-to-ends, including the first registered “double e-e”. Whether it’s planning a walk, cleaning ‘my’ campsite, pruning track-side vegetation, carrying my pack on Track, or simply sitting around a campfire chatting to other walkers, I love all aspects of “Bibbulmun Therapy”!
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.
I was introduced to the Bibbulmun Track in 2009 by a friend who is the maintenance volunteer for Hewett’s Hill Campsite. I took part in the Bibbulmun Team Challenge in 2009 and I was hooked! I signed up as a volunteer to experience it to the fullest and to help others enjoy this wonderful asset. I grew up in the country and have always loved the bush so I reconnected in a big way. I completed my end to end in early 2012 .In December 2012 I became the maintenance volunteer for West Cape Howe Campsite. Experiencing the Track and meeting other hikers gives me such a buzz. I hope to continue as long as I can and share it with others.
