Today we walk approximately 17km return from the Brookton Hwy to Canning Campsite.
The campsite is named so due to its proximity to the upper reaches of the Canning River.
A highlight of today’s walk is Abyssinia Rock. The Track passes the base of it this massive granite outcrop. Take the opportunity to go up to the low but still worthwhile peak.
Canning Campsite has picnic tables, a typical Bibbulmun Track shelter, water tank and a bush toilet (byo toilet paper!).
- Your Event Guide/s:
Hi! I’ve been walking the Track since the late 90’s, and like many, started slowly along the big hill curve of learning. A warning: the Bib is addictive. To me, being in the bush is a form of meditation. The whole Track is my favourite section but I must admit to being very fond of sitting on top of Mount Cooke, watching the eagles circle the skinks, and just soaking it all in. I enjoy sharing my love of the Track with novice walkers so hope to see you out there soon.
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”!
