Booking Form

A three-day walk through fabulous wandoo and jarrah forest with outstanding views from the top of Mt Cooke.

We begin our trek from near Gringer Creek campsite and head north through the very open flats which is typical of a wandoo forest.

There is only some undulation on the first day and although it is longest day, it is still relatively easy. We cross the Serpentine River and then camp near a stream which is part of the Canning River headwaters.  

We then leave the wandoo forest and ascend the rocky southern slopes of Mt Cooke with sensational views to the south, east and west. The walk ends after traversing Sullivan Rock where we then head home around noon, refreshed and ready to tackle the short working week. 

With the first day being 17km, the second 13km and the last about 7km, this 3-day trek is an excellent way to spend the Queen's Birthday long-weekend.

A great event for sectional End-to-enders trying to fill in the blanks.

Includes comprehensive planning night, trip preparation manual, map, experienced guides and equipment hire. Food not included. We have organised return transport for from Murdoch Park’n’Ride rail terminal. 

From the time of booking this event, throughout the entire planning process, walking the track, meeting the volunteers and other walkers, to the bus ride home we cannot recommend this event highly enough. We had one of the most memorable and fun weekends in a very long time (Jane).

This event is suitable for the Duke of Edinburgh's International Award

Our 3 guides made our entire trip. They were knowledgeable, friendly, helpful and extremely patience with 3 middle aged woman who had no idea what they were doing. Thank you all so much

    Hi, I have been bitten by the hiking bug and enjoy anything from a leisurely jaunt to a multiple day hike through our wonderful bush. I have enjoyed walking and hiking interstate and overseas and feel so lucky to have the Bibbulmun Track as a fantastic escape to nature right on our doorstep. I’ve managed a couple of end-to-ends and have enjoyed many stretches on multiple occasions. I have met a number of wonderful people along the way and hope to be able to experience walking with you soon.

    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!
