Walk, explore, discover on the Bibbulmun Track!

03 March 2021 11:45 AM

The latest edition of the popular Bibbulmun Track Foundation Calendar of Events is now available and includes a huge range of professionally guided walks on the world-renowned Bibbulmun Track.

The exciting line-up includes day walks, overnight hikes, women-only walks and kids’ events. They are fun, interactive and a great way to walk the Track and meet new friends. The variety of walks on offer give people a chance to experience the Track in ways that suit their fitness, comfort zone and skill level.  Feedback from participants suggests that many use these events to find other like-minded people to head off with on other walks, longer walks or even end-to-ends.

The calendar has a number of day walks designed to get people outdoors, including specialised themed events such as Pub, Pumps and Pipes, where you enjoy a guided walk on the Bibbulmun Track and explore the history and controversy surrounding the construction of the Mundaring Weir, the pump stations and the pipeline with an expert guide from the National Trust.

There is also a selection of family and kids events catering for pre-schoolers to teenagers.  Dr Dolittle Goes Bush and Camp Cooking for Kids are great events to get the kids outdoors and onto the Bibbulmun Track over the Easter school holiday. For the teenagers, we have a three-day expedition in July where they camp out and experience the fun and camaraderie of being in and connecting with, the bush and with others their age.

The Walking with Mum and Walking with Dad weekends provide the perfect opportunity for parents or grandparents to spend some precious time with the kids, exploring the bush and teaching them valuable bush and camping skills.

For the ladies, give yourself a well-deserved break and treat yourself to a bit of pampering on the Dandy Dwellingup Dames weekend in May or a Women’s One Night Escape in June. Both these events will leave you feeling rejuvenated and ready to face the world once again!

The Foundation also makes it easy to tackle overnight adventures.  Events cater for the complete novice on Bibbulmun Trek for Beginners to the experienced hiker, venturing into the wilderness of the south west on extended walks of up to 9 days. All essential hiking gear and transport are provided and experienced guides are on hand to offer support.

For those planning their own adventure, the Foundation hosts fun and informative workshops / seminars to guide and teach new skills in trip planning, navigation, hiking gear and food,  and our series of Social Sunday Walks are the perfect introduction to the Track -  led by trained volunteers, these walks are free for members of the Foundation and only $20.00 for non-members.

Bookings are essential.  For more information phone the Foundation on (08) 9481 0551 or email events@bibbulmuntrack.org.au
