Today’s 15km return walk takes us from the base of Mt Cooke along some old forestry tracks to the Nerang Campsite.
Mt Cooke and Nerang Campsites were destroyed by a bushfire in 2003. It was started by lightning and the effects were devastating.
Mt Cooke is still recovering and suffered the effects of another fire in September 2015.
We have lunch at the Nerang Campsite built in a new location after it was destoyed in 2003.
- 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’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.
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.
