Grab your hiking pack Adventurous Women, we're heading out on the Bibbulmun Track for 4 days! 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 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 who has completed a lengthy and challenging 'pack-free' multi day hike. It's an opportunity to stretch yourself a little and really test out multi-day hiking & camping 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. Its also a memorable year to be on the Bibb, as 2023 marks the track's 25th Anniversary.
We have chosen this 60.7km hike on the Bibbulmun Track starting from Harvey-Quindanning Road and ending in Dwellingup, as although some of it is quite challenging, it is achievable in the amount of time we've allocated, with walking distances coming in under 20km per day. You will experience 3 beautiful campsites along this section, one situated right on the banks of the Murray River.
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 as there are some challenging sections. It is suitable for those who have previously hiked a long distance with a full pack (ie: a full day or overnight) , OR those who are very experienced hikers and have completed a challenging "pack free" multi day hike on the Bibbulmun, Cape to Cape or similar style of track. (You must also be able to carry around 15kgs each day including all food, water, tent, stove, clothes & sleeping gear. A very good level of fitness is also essential.)
