Bibbulmun Track makes ‘Most Beautiful Treks in the World’ list
Global outdoor brand Deuter has included WA’s Bibbulmun Track in its ‘Most Beautiful Treks in the World’ list.
“The Bibbulmun Track is one of the world’s great long-distance walking trails, stretching 1,000 km from Kalamunda, a suburb in the hills on the outskirts of Perth, to the historic town of Albany on the south coast,” says Deuter’s website.
“Bibbulmun is the name of the original inhabitants of the region. They used to cover huge distances through the woods on foot. The trail, which is named after them, was opened in 1979 and conceived in the mould of the Appalachian Trail in the USA. It passes through the heart of the scenic southwest of Western Australia including 9 towns.”
“The Bibbulmun Track takes walkers through towering karri and tingle forests, down mist-shrouded valleys, over giant granite boulders and along breathtaking coastal heathlands. It passes through many of the most beautiful national parks of the southwest forests and coastline, and one of the world’s biggest biodiversity hotspots. The trail is well established and signposted throughout.”
Of course, not all of us have the time or wish to walk the entire Bibbulmun Track but fortunately we have four pack-free guided walking options that showcase the best bits of this magnificent trail!
First up is our 5-day Bibbulmun walk exploring the spectacular South West forests of giant Karri and Tingle trees as well as the stunning coastline. Or you can combine the Cape to Cape Track with the Bibbulmun for an 8-day wilderness walk with all the creature comforts.
They all come with plenty of creature comforts including first class accommodation, excellent meals and plenty of opportunities to try some lovely boutique wines!
