Today's walk begins near a couple trees from the USA curiously planted alongside the Track. We then ascend steeply through a pine plantation to arrive into the native forest at the top of a hill overlooking the Murray River Valley.

A few more hills and then a decent takes us to the Swamp Oak Campsite. We then head off the Bibbulmun Track along an old forestry track to the Murray River. We return to our cars the same way.

    My acquaintance with the Bibbulmun Track goes back to the mid 1980s. We walked most of the old alignment. On blistered feet and aching legs we learnt valuable early lessons about hiking. The children came along and my walking adventures adapted to suit their little legs. As they have moved onto their own adventures I found more time to return to my own, including walking the Bibb Track. The Bibb Track really is a world class asset. People from all over the world come here to walk it. I know. I have spoken with many out on the Track. I am keen, as a Bibb Track vollie, to share some of my passion, knowledge and skills with others who can then enjoy our wilderness for themselves and in turn share it with others.

    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!
