A great day walk (18kms) through bush as a taster of the bigger experience. The track is clear and well marked and there are several places for a pick up or drop off if you're tired. Start at Kalamunda and walk down into the Piesse Brook almost immediately. It's a climb out again of about 300metres which is the hardest part of the trip, from there it's easy. Stop for a cold drink at the Camel farm, en route. There is also an overnight hut halfway there if you want to camp out.
Finish at the Mundaring Weir Pub to celebrate. It's a great day trip - lots to see, changing foliage and fresh air. A great experience of the bush so close to the city. Do it!!

This is a lovely exercise to do on a Sunday afternoon. The Bibbulmun Track Foundation run guided walks (free for Members). Really enjoyable experience.

The Bibbulmun Track offers something for all ages and experience levels. And even over it's 1000km it never gets boring (well hardly ever) because the environments, terrains and views change so much.

The first part from Kalamunda can be quite challenging because there are many hills and 'pea gravel' can sometimes be tricky to walk on. However, it is a great place to hike because: the shelters are spaced quite close to one another (about 10 km apart as opposed to about 20km further south); there is very little car access past Mundaring so you can feel quite isolated whilst being close to the city; the views over Helena Valley are amazing; and the wildflowers in Spring are incredible.

As you move south you get into areas of higher rainfall and the vegetation changes from Jarrah dominated woodland to the giant Karri forests. These start around half way, near Donnelly River Village (a lovely qaint place to stay - complete with kangaroos and emus!). More meandering brooks and streams accompany you through the middle section and the cool quiet of the forest is sure to seep into your bones!

The last third to a quarter of the track follows the coast where things change again. You get more sand dunes (great for the legs!) and the low coastal heath makes it easy to take in the incredible coastal views! It's not all beaches, dunes and cliff though as this last section also takes in the tingle forest near Walpole - a must see for anyone coming to WA - as well as karri trees, rivers, inlets and even a (small) mountain!

I love the Bibbulmun Track for all its variety; for the friendly community feel that you get when you meet fellow hikers; for the superbly maintained facilities (each campsite has a shelter, water tank/s, toilet and picnic table); and for the way that it allows all types of people to experience anywhere from one day to two months in our wonderful natural world. You can carry your belongings on your back and camp along the way; or you can let someone else look after the logistics, transport, accommodation and food and just enjoy the walk. There really is something for everyone on the Bibbulmun Track.

See previous post ("Sullivan's Rock to Monadocks campsite day walk"). Beyond Sullivan's Rock, head South to Mt. Cooke. Other than an initial sloping section, it's a flat 5-6km through forest and over a few creeks to the Mt. Cooke campsite. Easy enough. Rest up here as the going now gets tough. Drag yourself up a 2-3km slope that becomes progressively steeper. Collapse at the summit of Mt. Cooke. Congratulations, you're at the highest point (582m) in the Darling Range!

A different sort of day walk not far from Perth. Start by mid-morning; you'll want to get back to your car by sunset. Park at the Sullivan's Rock recreation area on the West side of Albany Highway, 9km past the Jarrahdale turn off, about an hour's drive from the Perth CBD. It's not well signposted, so keep your eyes peeled. Walk aross Albany Highway, and immediately access the Bibbulmun Track Sullivan's Rock spur trail. Sullivan's Rock is a taste of what lies ahead - climbing on granite (beware: slippery when wet). On rock, you are guided by cairns at ground level rather than the more familiar yellow "Waugal" markers on trees at eye level or above. You will also meet many inquisitive lizards! Beyond Sullivan's Rock, head North to the Monadocks campsite. Only 7km distant but Mt. Vincent and Mt. Cuthbert are in the way. Prepare for steep but short ascents/descents and great views of an ancient landscape. You'll have earned a well deserved rest by the time you get to the campsite. The return journey always feels easier... A good walk to break in new boots.
