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 like to hike! I enjoy the sights, the smells and the sounds of being in the bush. The Bibbulmun Track is fabulous as it is so readily accessible and user friendly. I have completed two end to ends, one sectional and one during the wettest spring on record. In spite of this, I continue to get out on the track as often as I can. I have hiked in many locations here and abroad and can honestly say there is no place like home. If you share my enthusiasm come hike with me.
Hi! I have been interested in the bush since an early age and have walked small sections of the Track since its inception. Early years were spent taking family and Scout Groups on weekends camping and bush walking. I maintain a section south of Collie and walking the Track has given me a great deal of enjoyment. I was part of the 10th Anniversary Walk when I completed my first end-to-end. Since this time I have spent many hours, volunteering in the office and leading walks to ensure others know and enjoy the Bibbulmun Track as I do. My favourite is to catch a bus and spend my friendship with the bush for some days and slowly come back, to where it may take me!
Hi, I have been bitten by the hiking bug and enjoy anything from a leisurely jaunt to a multiple day hike through our wonderful bush. I have enjoyed walking and hiking in many areas having completed the Cape to cape, the Great Ocean Road walk along with a couple of rambles in the UK, the most memorable being the Cumbria Way through the Lakes District. The Bibbulmun Track is a fantastic escape to nature right on our doorstep. I’ve managed a sectional end to end and have enjoyed many stretches on multiple occasions. I have met a number of great people along the way and hope to be able to experience walking with you soon.
