- Your Event Guide/s:
I have always enjoyed the outdoors and now I am excited to be a volunteer guide with the Foundation. I am also a maintenance volunteer and a Board member of the Foundation. Hope to meet you soon.
Hi all, I have been a regular user of the Track ever since the realignment and have walked end-to-end both ways plus many sectional bits. As well as enjoying introducing people to the Track as a volunteer guide I also help to maintain it by looking after Mt Wells campsite and a section of Track each side. I love being out in the bush and the Track facilities make the wilderness experience much easier and more enjoyable. I often walk, tramp or ramble in other parts of Australia and elsewhere but it’s always a pleasure to be back on the Bibb especially in spring when the wildflowers rival any I have seen anywhere else.
Hi, Karen here. I have always had a love of walking in the bush, particularly looking at wildflowers, but have only in recent years discovered the Bibbulmun Track. As many have told me, it is addictive and I am now passing on my new found passion by volunteering as a guide. I haven’t walked the entire track yet but my favourite so far is around the Canning River where it amazes me how much the vegetation and soil can change in so short a time. Hope to see you out there soon!
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.
