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!).
Please note this walk was originally scheduled for June 21st and therefore the date differs from that published in the member’s magazine, Bibbulmun News. Please also note that this is one of two different walks starting from the same location. Be sure to book the correct one.

- Your Event Guide/s:
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.
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.
