MAKE A BOOKING

Come and join us for a three day "pack and camp" hiking experience along a beautiful section of the Bibbulmun Track, boasting Marri and Jarrah trees, along with a great variety of flora granite outcrops and riverside walking. 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 a 32.3 km walk on the Bibbulmun Track showcasing a variety of terrain (from easy, through to challenging) to be completed over 3 days. With plenty of time to explore, walking at an enjoyable and relaxed pace to enable us to enjoy the surrounds. Our walk begins on day one at Brookton Highway and finishes on day three at Sullivan Rock Rest Area.


This 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've 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. Three 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. 

 

Your expert guide on this multi-day walking break, will answer any questions you have about getting out on the Track and walking any section of the Bibbulmun, as well as providing information on how to effectively pack & carry a full backpack, tips on gear, feet, hiking poles, boots, trail food and more at a pre-walk briefing to be held approximately two weeks prior to the walk. 

 


Between Adventurous Women & The Bibbulmun Track Foundation you can hire gear if you don't have your own, or if you don't know anyone you can borrow from.  We will provide you with a gear list (food, clothing, gear etc) to help you plan/prepare.

On booking... in the comments field - let us know what your hire requirements are if you know & we'll tell where you can hire from and cost (AW or Bibb Track Foundation) ie: Sleeping Mat, Sleeping Bag, Trangier or cook set, backpack, tent

Itinerary

We pick you up from The Wellington Street Coach Stand in Perth at 10.00 am and head out to the Brookton Highway where your multi-day walk begins. Today's walking is a good warm up for the following day's hike. We head through plenty of Jarrah and Sheoak forest, exploring Abyssinia Rock which is one of the highlights, before reaching our destination for the evening, Canning Campsite.

Meals: None included

We pack up camp early this morning and roll on out of Canning, as it's a big day on the track, with a couple of hills to keep things interesting! At the halfway point, we enjoy being near the river, a great spot to break and enjoy the calmness of our surrounds, before continuing on through big Marri and Jarrah trees and a great range of flora. As we near our camp for the night at Monadnocks, the forest of Marri and Jarrah switch to Sheok with some beautiful granite outcrops setting the scene.

Meals: None included

Enjoy a cruisy start to your day taking in the beauty of this area, a little bird watching, maybe a some yoga or mediation before setting off! Todays hike is relatively short in terms of distance, but there's a couple of granite hills to get the heart rate up! First of those being Mt Cuthbert which is approached through a pretty section of forest leading from the campsite. We take the time to admire the views before descending into the saddle in readiness for the steep climb up the next hill, Mt Vincent. You may find this one a little more challenging, as you'll no doubt be feeling a little weary by this stage, but the views at the top are worth it! From then it's down hill all the way until we reach Sullivan Rock Rest Area where our transport will be waiting.

Bibbulmun Overnighter - Pack n Camp Perth Hills Discovery Centre WA

Sat 3rd October 2020 | Suanne

Apart from the Noisy group at the campsite, I thoroughly enjoyed my overnighter.Being the first time I have carried all my gear in my pack, I learned about how to wear my pack and weight distribution. Through talking with other group members I learned what was absolutely necessary and unnecessary to take, and alternative items I could use on a trek. I met a lovely bunch of ladies who I hope to catch up with again. Our leader Sue O is amazing, sharing her knowledge about the flora and fauna of our bush and generally looking out for us all ensuring our health and wellbeing and safety at all times. A truely memorable hike. Thank you AW

An absolutely amazing weekend learning the ropes with the patient and kind Sue! She was a wealth of knowledge and taught us so much about our gear and how to set up, but also her knowledge of the wildflowers and the track was amazing! I would not hesitate to recommend Adventurous Women to anyone who wants to give hiking a go in a safe and supportive environment.
