Come along for an adult’s night walk along the Bibbulmun Track. Learn how to develop your night vision, navigate the Bibbulmun Track in the dark and see the stars from a large rocky outcrop without the pollution of our city lights.
Our walk (8.6km return) starts as the sun begins to set and is an easy pace through mixed jarrah forest with some uneven terrain. Participants need to be reasonably fit, have had some previous Bibbulmun Track experience and be confident walkers (i.e. confident with their footfall).
1¼hr from Perth. Don’t forget your glass of red to enjoy up on the rock.
Relaxed, fun and really enjoyed the walk back by torchlight – Helen, event participant

- Your Event Guide/s:
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!
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.
Just call me Barb! I am originally from Switzerland. I moved for good to Australia at the end of 2013. Why? The Bibbulmun Track called me back! I walked this fabulous hiking track end2end solo in autumn 2010 in regard to a review and preview of life. In Switzerland I used to be a lecturer for physical education at the Swiss Federal Institute of Sport and here in Perth I am doing a PhD in physical education science. Physical activities have always been part of my life and I like to infect others with my passion for being physically active as part of the divine nature. I look forward to walking with you!
