Bibbulmun Track Donnelly River 7 day Adult Trek | Western Australia

Tues 17 to  Tues 24 Sept 2019     Adult 7 day River and forest explorer trek   This spring walk starts at the picturesque town of Balingup and we have made this trek to go for seven days so that you experience the changing environment.  From the northern jarrah/marri forest into the denser damper karri forest of the south.  The first night has gorgeous sunset and sunrise views over the Blackwood valley, yes a few steep climbs and descents but the track often levels out following old rail formations that gives us gentle grades and comfortable walking.  A bit of luxury can be had at Donnelly River Village where we collect our food drop.  The next four days we follow the Donnelly River which provides delightful walking, some lovely views, early morning bird song and a number of pleasant pools and small rapids.  We meander through the karri forest of Beelelup NP to finish at the falls. If you are an experienced trekker with ultralight trekking gear (or happy to hire to lighten your load) and would like to join this trek, then contact Marie on 042 705 8866 and we can work out a trekking fee that is a cost only basis.

March 2021         Cape to Cape walk trail    The Cape to Cape walk trail traverses 135km along the ridge and beaches of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park following the coast to end point at Cape Leeuwin.  The walk takes in amazing views of sea and landscapes, wildflowers and the stunning Indian Ocean.  The trail explores the coastal region’s natural secrets, deserted white beaches, ancient granite boulders, limestone cliffs and secluded swimming spots.  By completing the trek over eight days, we walk no more than 20km in one day and it allows us to enjoy a swim in the afternoon at Prevelly and a morning to explore Hamelin Bay.  The majority of nights we camp at delightful little campsites tucked away under the shelter of trees but the trail also has the luxury of passing through settlements where we can enjoy a choice of accommodation and fresh food and drinks.  Dates include travel to and from Perth.
