We had an awesome time with great guides and company, and will definitely be joining more events. Thank you so much Jenny and Matt
Two adventures wrapped up in one weekend!
This is one of our favourite events. A fantastic walking and paddling weekend escape in Dwellingup.
Forget the heavy packs; enjoy a rewarding 14km walk on our Track with only a day pack.
You will have time to enjoy some of the local attractions and a fascinating tour of the historic Marrinup POW camp before a tranquil paddle down the Murray River.
I had no idea how much fun and value for money this weekend was until I did it!
Includes two nights accommodation in town with late check out, two continental breakfasts (other meals not included, our Friday night briefing is at the local cafe where we can have dinner), guided POW tour, experienced guides, canoe equipment and instruction. We have organised return transport for from Murdoch Park’n’Ride rail terminal as well as all transfers over the weekend for you.
This weekend was so much fun! Thanks so much, it was brilliant!
Be quick, this one fills up fast!
I never knew we had a POW camp here during WWII

- 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!
Hi all, I have been a regular user of the Track ever since the realignment and have walked end-to-end both ways plus many sectional bits. As well as enjoying introducing people to the Track as a volunteer guide I also help to maintain it by looking after Mt Wells campsite and a section of Track each side. I love being out in the bush and the Track facilities make the wilderness experience much easier and more enjoyable. I often walk, tramp or ramble in other parts of Australia and elsewhere but it’s always a pleasure to be back on the Bibb especially in spring when the wildflowers rival any I have seen anywhere else.
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.
