Do you have little or no direction in your life? Do you really know how to use a compass?

Steve will guide you through a series of practical and theoretical exercises on and near the Track in Mundaring.

Get Lost with Steve and you will have fun learning and perfecting basic map reading and compass skills.

Steve is a great teacher and made sure we were keeping up with his lessons. He makes me laugh and did not make me feel silly if I didn't understand straight away. Jane, 2018

Own navigation compass required. Involves approx 7km walking on and off tracks. 

A well run event, where there was no real danger of getting lost thanks to the unobtrusive help of Steve and the volunteers. We were given enough latitude to figure things out for ourselves, and that provided for a sense of accomplishment. Beverley – event participant

Such a course should be a pre-requisite for individuals attempting the track. – Ken 2016

Includes morning tea and Track map. BYO lunch.

Pitched at just the right level to somehow accommodate everyone who was there with varying skills. Incredibly well organised down to the last pencil. Clear explanations, excellent practice exercises carefully graded to have increasing complexity. Individual help when we ran into difficulties. Fun. Warm sense of humour, welcoming and very experienced. Wonderful, don't change anything! Kirsty  (event participant)

For the next level up in navigation, see the Get Found With Steve (usually held in June each year).

The whole course was efficiently and professionally run, without losing a relaxing feel. We had a thoroughly enjoyable day, met many new friends and I feel confident in the use of a compass. Thank you all for a wonderful day! Barry and Ruth

Great course, knowledgeable instructors. I enjoyed the day and now have more confidence of heading into the bush with a map and compass – Vince April 2016

Keep up the good work guys I have not ever been to an organised BTF event that wasn’t well worth the doing and I would and do recommend it to people I know - Glen April 2016

    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!

    I have always enjoyed the outdoors and now I am excited to be a volunteer guide with the Foundation. I am also a maintenance volunteer and a Board member of the Foundation. Hope to meet you soon.
