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!
In an effort to walk in the bush, I joined Bushwalkers WA in 2006. The love of wildness must be in my blood, because the first day walk I did in the bush had got me hooked. Since then I have walked here and there, interstate and overseas. I enjoy overnight multi-day walks most, and have managed to tick some of the well-known tracks in Australia, New Zealand, and Europe off my bucket list; but the track that I enjoyed most is our Bibbulmun Track. Moving along on it, I get a sense of freedom, and a degree of peace and tranquillity that is more than I was able to obtain from any other trails I have walked. I don’t know a long distant track that is like our Bibbulmun that is so well marked, with water and beautiful shelters located at comfortable distance intervals, and the use of all it has on offer is free. A track that has given me so much joy deserves my little effort in helping to keep it free for all to access and enjoy. I appreciate the opportunity to become a Track maintenance volunteer and volunteer guide for the Bibbulmun track Foundation.
