A great way to experience track walking and camping with little experience and without having to buy expensive equipment. It’s inspired us to do more of it and has also given us some confidence to do so. Kim – participating dad.

Tony did a great job explaining what to expect. Great equipment that we could borrow. Tony & Jim were fantastic guides and very patient with the kids. They were only too keen to impart their knowledge. I now feel confident to take the kids on the Bibbulmun Track by myself. Andrew – participating dad.

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.
