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.
Hi folks. I have been with the Foundation since 1997, when I first joined as a member and maintenance volunteer. I wanted to get involved in the 'new' Track after getting terribly lost on the 'old' Bibbulmun Track. From there I began leading walks and then came on staff in the office in 1999 as Events Manager and Lead Guide. I love walking and have done a few end-to-ends. I really get a kick out of sharing this passion with everyone. I am still a volunteer and look after Nerang Campsite. Come and join me on this event!
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.
