This is the tenth section of the 25th Anniversary end-to-end walk. 

Your guides will lead you through this section of karri forest, tingle forest, rugged coastal cliffs and amazing coastal views. We also stay at one of the favourite campsites on the whole Track by the banks of the Frankland River and walk through the famous Valley of the Giants.

Great for sectional end-to-enders or those yet to explore the Track near Walpole. Read more about this area.

Walkers will need to arrange their own accommodation as well as transport to the start (Walpole) and from the end of the walk (Peaceful Bay). 

TRANSWA  provide a service from Perth to Walpole on 30th August arriving at 3.50pm.

    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!
