Grab your hiking pack Adventurous Women, we're heading out on the Bibbulmun Track for 4 days over the Easter Break! Enjoy the simplicity of camping out in nature, sleeping under the stars and being among those with similar interests ... bliss!
This multi day hike is all about having fun, gaining confidence in a supportive environment, learning knew skills, exploring the Bibb 'bush camp' experience and hiking while carrying your own gear!
We have chosen the 61.6km hike on the Bibbulmun Track starting from Harvey-Quindanning Road and ending in Collie, as this section is achievable in the amount of time we've allocated and provides a good variety of terrain. One of the other appealing aspects of this section, is that it boasts 3 well spaced campsites, allowing us to hike under 20kms per day so we get into camp at a reasonable time to enjoy & explore!
This multi day hike is a great way to up the anti if you've already completed an overnighter on the Bibbulmun, or any other track, while carrying all your own gear and sleeping in the shelters (or your own tent)...... or you're an experienced hiker, with a very good level of fitness, who has completed a 'pack-free' multi day hike. It's an opportunity to stretch yourself a little and really test out this style of hiking on the Bibbulmun Track under the guidance of an experienced bush walking guide and in the company of like-minded women. Four days on the track, you'll really start to get more familiar with your gear, (or hire gear) and learn what you do and do not really need to pack, before tackling more challenging or longer sections.
We will provide you with a gear list (food, clothing, gear etc) to help you plan/prepare, along with a pre walk information video link featuring one of our expert guides explaining how to effectively pack & carry a full backpack, tips on gear, feet, hiking poles, boots, trail food and more!
You can hire all the gear you require from The Bibbulmun Track Foundation, if you don't have your own, however you need to book well in advance to avoid disappointment.
Please Note: This walk not suitable for beginners. It is suitable for those who have previously hiked a reasonable distance with a full pack (ie: a full day or overnight) , OR those who are experienced hikers, with a very good level of fitness and have completed a "pack free" multi day hike on the Bibbulmun, Cape to Cape or similar style of track. (You must be able to carry around 15kgs each day including all food, water, tent, stove, clothes & sleeping gear.)
