Plus, you’ll be hiking with our professional, local guides who have extensive knowledge and experience interpreting the natural beauty of the Track. They know and love the amazing flora and fauna of the region. Its fascinating indigenous and colonial past. The geology and marine environment.

More about the Bibbulmun Track

The Bibbulmun Track is one of the world’s great long distance walk trails. It stretches 1000km from Kalamunda, a suburb in the hills on the outskirts of Perth, to the historic town of Albany on the south coast. And it passes through the heart of the scenic south west of Western Australia.

The Track is for walkers only and is signposted with yellow triangular markers symbolising the Waugal, the rainbow serpent of the Aboriginal Dreaming. We’ve hand-picked some of the most spectacular sections to hike, covering a total of approximately 50km in four days of hiking.

Day 2: Coalmine Beach-Walpole loop plus river cruise. 10.5km.

Day 3: Tingle forest experience with Tree Top Walk. 10-12km.

Enjoy breakfast from your supply hamper and get ready to experience the magic of the tingle forest! We walk out of our accommodation on the Bibbulmun Track for an exhilarating 7km – it’s mostly up hill but the spectacular views are worth every step. Stop at several look-outs for plenty of Instagram moments. Plunge into the forest, stopping at the Giant Tingle Tree. It’s a towering red tingle tree hollowed out by fire.


From here, it’s onto the bus for a 10-minute drive to the magical Circular Pool on the Frankland River. Strip off for a well-earned swim or stroll on one of the short walks here. Enjoy another delicious lunch under the forest canopy. Then, it’s on to the Valley Of The Giants Tree Top Walk. this world-renowned attraction is a 600m walkway soaring 40m into the tree tops, with more excellent walking trails on the ground meandering among the tingles. On the way home, we stop for an early diner at Nornabar. It’s a beautiful little café and restaurant right on the Franklin River whose Sri Lankan chefs do a mean curry!

Day 4: Bush to beach – and a swim. 15km.

After breakfast at Coalmine Beach and a short bus ride back to the Valley Of The Giants, we’re back on the Bibbulmun Track where we left off the day before. Today’s hike is 15km, walking out of the forest (mostly downhill!) to Conspicious Cliff. It’s home to unspoiled beach, limestone cliffs and granite headlands. Enjoy lunch on the Track while taking in the epic coastal scenery, with the option for a swim at cap off the day. Relax back at the accommodation and sit down to a tasty dinner prepared for you.
