5 Day Bibbulmun walk

Bibbulmun walk

A guided 5 day Pack-Free walk

This fantastic 5 day Pack Free walk showcases the highlights of the long-distance Bibbulmun Track in the South West region of Western Australia. The Bibbulmun track covers 1000kms from Kalamunda in the Perth Hills to Albany. With a distance of over 1000kms, to do the walk in its entirety would take around 8 weeks, instead, we have hand-picked the best sections of this track to provide you with a sensational 5-day journey. The Bibbulmun Track has a deep indigenous connection, the track derived its name from the Bibbulmun people, a subgroup of the Noongar, who originally populated the south-west corner of the state.

Discover varied landscapes of the Bibbulmun track and wine regions. Walk through the stunning and tranquil South West Forests with their towering karri and tingle trees, including pretty Beedelup Falls near Pemberton. Explore some of Australia’s most magnificent coastline with their giant granite boulders, stunning beaches and flowering heathlands. You will be staying at the best boutique accommodation and sampling some of the finest wines and produce of this region. WA’s South Coast is sure to enchant your every sense.
