- 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!
I enjoy the outdoors and have bush walked and been involved with the Bibbulmun Track and the Foundation for some time. Apart from being a volunteer guide I am also a maintenance volunteer.
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.
