Hewett's Hill Campsite was named after Peter Hewett, a former Superintendent of the Forests Department in the 1970's who was instrumental in giving the idea of the Bibbulmun Track the green light.
The campsite is also the first campsite from the Northern Terminus.
This walk is for fit and experienced walkers only. The pace on this walk is generally faster and the breaks somewhat shorter than intermediate style walks. If you have any doubts please consider booking on an intermediate walk.
The campsite has water and a toilet (byo toilet paper!).

- Your Event Guide/s:
Hi everyone, I have been walking the Bibbulmun Track since the early 90's. I became a member in 2000 and a volunteer in 2001, mainly as a maintenance volunteer at Mt Clare and now at Hewett's Hill and surrounds. I was part of the Telethon Challenge fundraising walk in 2004 on the Bib and I completed my first sectional end-to-end in 2007. I love the Track and love to share it with everyone, hence I have become a volunteer guide. Enjoy your time on this amazing world class 1000km+ trail. You soon will become hooked too!
In 1999 I read in the Sunday Times an article about the Bibbulmun Track and I walked a section. I joined the Foundation in 2003 and walked solo from North to South between October and November. Since then I have endeavoured to do a major trek every two years. As a guide I hope to encourage others to love the environment.
