Enjoy the beauty of the spring flowers as you explore the Wellington Spur Trail south and west of Collie over the September long-weekend.
We head down on Saturday morning and arrive at the Wellington Dam to start our short walk, with overnight packs, to the new Arcadia campsite.
Sunday afternoon we join the main Bibbulmun Track and camp out again before walking back into Collie on Monday afternoon walking around 40km over the long-weekend. Great for anyone who hasn’t walked the Wellington spur, wants to get away from the footy frenzy into the tranquil bush or indeed never been to the Wellington Dam.
What a great way to explore the wildflowers - and all the logistics were sorted for me! Loved not having to drive. Seeing the new campsites and exploring the new trail was a bonus - thanks BTF! (Sally - event participant).
Includes return transport from Murdoch Park'n'Ride to walk start, comprehensive planning night, trip preparation manual, map and equipment hire. BYO food. Walkers must be fit (as they will be carrying all gear) and not be chronic AFL supporters!
This event is suitable for the practice and qualifying journey for the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh's International Award.
Early bird prices available until end July or when taken.

- Your Event Guide/s:
Hello! I am a retired “ex-schoolie” who was introduced to the Track in 2003 and have been volunteering with the BTF since 2004. Starting as a maintenance volunteer for Canning campsite, I became a volunteer guide and an office volunteer. I have completed five end-to-ends, including the first registered “double e-e”. Whether it’s planning a walk, cleaning ‘my’ campsite, pruning track-side vegetation, carrying my pack on Track, or simply sitting around a campfire chatting to other walkers, I love all aspects of “Bibbulmun Therapy”!
During the week a mild mannered public servant who will take any opportunity to get out on the Track, it’s a far better existence than my previous life sent deep under the Worlds Oceans - the scenery not great!! I have been walking the Track now for 15 years and have completed a sectional end to end a few years ago I also am a maintenance volunteer for the Mt Cuthbert and Mt Vincent sections.
