Booking Form

Kids grow up so quickly and before you know it, they have flown the nest! 

Savour this time by creating as many wonderful memories together as possible. Our Walking with Dad and Walking with Mum weekends have been thoughtfully considered so they are enjoyed by parents and kids (8-13yrs) alike. 

Together you will enjoy two walks through the magnificent jarrah forest and camp overnight at a Bibbulmun Track campsite. Here you will learn bush and camping skills from our experienced guides and perhaps enjoy some marshmallows roasted over the fire.

These events are guaranteed to be fun, fun, fun with long lasting memories for you all. The perfect opportunity to get outdoors with your kids.

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.

Includes trained guides, map, comprehensive planning night, trip preparation manual and equipment hire. BYO food. We have organised return transport for from Murdoch Park’n’Ride rail terminal.

The price stated is for one adult and one child. An extra child per booking is welcome provided there is space. Max two kids per adult.

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.

    Hi all! I’ve been walking the Bibbulmun Track, and various other trails around WA, for the last 15 years. One of the best things about being a volunteer guide is being able to help people of all levels experience the joys of the Australian bush. I’m passionate about bringing the outdoors to younger generations in order to facilitate a connection to nature that they can enjoy in the years to come.

    Hi folks, I have been a member with the Foundation since 1999 and became a volunteer guide after participating in the Walk with Dad event many years ago. See you out there!
