The Bibbulmun Track walk from Pemberton to Northcliffe is well known for pleasant walking through the karri forest. If you’re looking to complete another section of the Bibbulmun Track, then this one at 57km in total, is achievable over the four days comfortably. We have decided to walk it in reverse (Northcliffe to Pemberton), just for something a little different and we’ve included this tour in our ‘Happy Camper’ series, as it’s generally a lovely time of year to camp out.

‘Happy Camping’, doesn’t mean carrying a full backpack with your gear while out walking the track, nor does it mean you will be sleeping in one of the track shelters. We transport you to the track each day from our base camp, you only require a day pack while walking, then we pick you up after the day’s walking and take you back Base Camp once again.

Our base camp for this tour is surrounded by acres of beautiful Karri & Redgum forest, adjoining surrounding state national forest.  The Campground is basic (bush style),  however it has hot showers & flushing toilets and we will be set up with all the necessary comforts you would expect from an Adventurous Women Tour.

Itinerary

Today we leave Perth at 7.00am making our way to Northcliffe, with a break for lunch prior to beginning our walk for the day. This section of the Bibbulmun Track is a great warm up, as it’s relatively easy walking (and a good stretch for the body after being in the bus for a few hours). On finishing for the day, we’ll head off to our Base Camp for the next three nights and settle in.

Meals: Lunch, Dinner

This morning, after breakfast we hit the track again for a beautiful walk, stopping at the Schafer Campsite for morning tea and spending some time here to reflect on the tranquil surrounds and beauty of the area.

There’s also a waterhole here for those who would like to get a little more adventurous and take the opportunity to have a dip.

Today’s walk should finish up just after lunch, so we then venture into the quaint little town of Northcliffe where we visit Understory, a nationally unique art in nature experience, that’s a little out of the ordinary! It’s back to Base Camp afterwards for another night of great food & great conversation.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Another fabulous day on the track, with a few ups and downs along the way, to get the heart rate up. For a good part of the day we follow the path of the Warren River, while enjoying the shade of the mighty Karri Trees and onto Gloucester Road, which is our end point for today. Then it’s back to Base Camp to enjoy nature & relax for the evening.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast this morning, we pack up camp before heading off on our last 12 k’s of this lovely section the Bibbulmun Track. Today’s walk will consist of a few more ups and downs, through stunning Karri Forest. Some of you may choose to take the diversion to check out ‘The Cascades’ en-route (our guide will discuss this option). We also pass the Gloucester Tree today and those who wish to brave the climb, are welcome to do so, before heading onto the trail head in Pemberton. We will enjoy lunch in Pemberton, prior to boarding the bus for the trip home.

This tour by it's very nature is not designed for the 5 Star Traveller. It is for the girl who has an 'adventurous spirit', one who is happy to bog in and help setting up tents (we set up these in teams and it's easy), likes the idea of camping and sitting around a campfire at night, and is able to adopt a 'go with the flow attitude'.........after all we're camping!

 
Walkers signing up for this trip should have had some bush walking experience (even if just a day hike) and have a good general level of fitness.

Ningaloo Kayaking Trip

June 2010 by Ness A

What ended up starting out with an accidental sleep in followed by a rush to make sure I had everything I needed was only the start of a great week and road trip ahead.  Arriving at the Rivergods depot as planned, all the gear was packed into the kayak trailor and our luggage and us ladies into the 11 seater bus we then headed towards Exmouth. 

Along the way I could feel it getting warmer so the cold of Perth became a distant memory. Having to make the usual pit stops along the way it was decided to camp overnight just outside of Canarvon to rejuvenate and obviously avoid running into any of the local wildlife along the way.  Another early morning upon us and we were back on the road only to arrive in Exmouth just in time for lunch.  After replenishing supplies we made our way out to the beach where we would spend the next week in the outdoors.

The week was filled with kayaking around Yardie Creek and beaches stopping to check out the sites as well as well earned morning snacks and lunches (I'm sorry Fee for polishing off half a can of baked beans).  For some that preferred to take a break from the kayaking mid week a hiking trip was on the agenda.  Even though there were surprises along the way 1 member in particular overcame some difficult terraine & obstacles only to come out the other end knowing she had accomplished something she never thought she'd make through with her fellow AWs there to share in such a feat and who were extremely proud of her.

I would have to say snorkeling the coral reef was the highlight of the trip for me.  Apart from surfacing every now and again to check I was still within the safety zone I could have stayed down there swimming with the ocean life for hours.  Turquoise Bay was as blues and the pictures showed and the sun as warm as a awesome summers day.  To know such a place existed in our backyard and I was there enjoying every minute was such a fantastic feeling. The nights around the campsite were filled with fun, laughter, stories, games and of course a late night walk to see what we could find or what wildlife was watching us with much interets.  All of us lent a hand to Jorien and Shaun preparing the meals and general campsite chores which really didn't feel like work at all.

Most ladies on the trip I knew but got to know more outside of our normal day to day lives and of course as always got to meet some newbies!  Even though only a week and a great week at that you definitely felt like you had a holiday and of course an adventure. After dropping off the trailor in storage for the next group we started our almost non-stop journey back to Perth (arriving ahead of schedule) and boy I was glad to be back home.  Camping is an absolute hoot no matter where you are but you can't beat the enjoyment of that first shower when home.  I definitely slept well that night!!
