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.

- Your Event Guide/s:
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!
Hi folks! Ian here. I have been a member since 2007 and I participated in part of the 10th Anniversary Walk in 2008. I had so much fun that I decided I wanted to be a volunteer guide. I am also a maintenance volunteer and just love it!
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!
