We’re ecstastic at Cape to Cape Explorer Tours after our head guide Heather Schofield gave birth to a beautiful baby girl named Imogen!!
.
Many of our hikers have cherished experiencing the Cape to Cape and Bibbulmun tracks with Heather at the helm. She’s famous for sharing her incredible wealth of knowledge on the flora, fauna, geology, marine, indigenous and European history of Western Australia’s South-West. And we’ve been inundated with emails asking how her pregnancy was going. Well, we’re stoked to report she and her partner Avan are now proud parents!

Birth followed a hike on the Cape to Cape Track

Amazingly, Heather said her labour began not long after a hike on the Cape to Cape Track. She walked one of her favourite sections of Margaret River’s 124km hiking trail, descending and then climbing back up the 300-plus stairs into the Boodjidup Valley. Ironically, the valley is a sacred women’s birthing spot to the Wadandi or Saltwater People indigenous to the Margaret River area.

Imogen joins the Cape to Cape Explorer Tours family 

“Yesterday afternoon on that beautiful spring day I bought my daughter earthside,” Heather said the day after giving birth. “Introducing Imogen Elizabeth McLean, weighing just under 3kgs. Zero pain relief through an active but peaceful labour at the Margaret River hospital. I did do the very special Boodjidup steps section of the Track 2 days before her birth, which probably helped immensely on a variety of levels!”

Heather Schofield already looking forward to returning to the Track

For now, Heather is resting up the enjoying the motherhod ride! “For a tiny bub she’s got huge feet….definitely a walker!” she says. But we know our head guide is already looking forward to returning to guiding duties in the coming seasons. “Looking forward to introducing her to you all in the coming months,” Heather said. “Good luck with the spring season crew. The wildflowers are looking epic!”

Why our head guide is a Margaret River treasure

For those who haven’t yet met her, our head guide Heather is a Margaret River born and bred treasure. And she’s an absolute encyclopaedia of knowledge. She was raised on the banks of the Blackwood River. And is an alumni of Karridale Primary, Margaret River High and Charles Sturt University. But Heather’s passion for country through ecological agriculture and indigenous culture has seen her amass a wide range of experience throughout West Oz. As a Margaret River young rural ambassador she’s worked in regenerating and revegetating the South-West.

Her froth and enthusiasm for conservation led her into eco-tourism. And she relishes taking a long walk and sharing her vast local knowledge. Biodiversity and plants and their myriad names and indigenous applications are but a few of her specialities. More recently, Heather created, developed and guided our new Bibbulmun Track hiking adventure, thanks to her deep love of the Walpole region. If you come hiking with us, walking the Track with Heather is sure to become a treasured memory!
