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’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.
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.
