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:
During the week a mild mannered public servant who will take any opportunity to get out on the Track, it’s a far better existence than my previous life sent deep under the Worlds Oceans - the scenery not great!! I have been walking the Track now for 15 years and have completed a sectional end to end a few years ago I also am a maintenance volunteer for the Mt Cuthbert and Mt Vincent sections.
I was introduced to the Bibbulmun Track in 2009 by a friend who is the maintenance volunteer for Hewett’s Hill Campsite. I took part in the Bibbulmun Team Challenge in 2009 and I was hooked! I signed up as a volunteer to experience it to the fullest and to help others enjoy this wonderful asset. I grew up in the country and have always loved the bush so I reconnected in a big way. I completed my end to end in early 2012 .In December 2012 I became the maintenance volunteer for West Cape Howe Campsite. Experiencing the Track and meeting other hikers gives me such a buzz. I hope to continue as long as I can and share it with others.
