Description

The Bibbulmun Track is a 70.9km multi-day exploration trek close to Perth that averages 10-12 kms per day giving lots of time to build the campfire each afternoon, relax and keep warm.

Our first day is pretty flat and Mt Dale Hut is set in a pretty forest position looking out onto Mt Dale. The next day we climb up onto the Darling Scarp to our destination Beraking campsite with great views over the Perth plains. Following the scarp we arrive at Waaleigh campsite with more views. Waaleigh has just had a renovation and is in a gorgeous setting.

Helena Hut is our next night and to get there we have to walk down to the Helena River and back up again onto the Darling Scarp for views from the new rammed earth Helena Hut. From there the track winds up and down to arrive at Ball Creek the destination for our 7-day trek.

The next day as you arrive at the Mundaring Weir early morning when it’s still and beautiful. We cross the weir on the wall and climb up again on the other side to the lookout over the Helena Valley, from there it is a short walk to our last hut, Hewitts, sitting pretty amongst its granite outcrops.

The final day starts easy then runs down to the Piesse Brook and up the other side following a pretty little stream to arrive at the Northern Terminus of the Bibbulmun Track. There is phone coverage for most of the track and this trek is suitable for the Duke of Edinburgh Gold Award.
