The Bibbulmun Track

The Bibbulmun Track is a 1,000km walk trail that extends from Perth to Albany on the south coast of WA. The track was first suggested by a former forestry worker, Jim Schafer, who identified an opportunity for people to access some of the most spectacular country in our state.

D’Entrecasteaux National Park

Easter was upon us once again, and with the annual salmon run underway, we decided to bolt to the south coast for some R&R and a bit of exploring.

Back on the west coast

A few hours north of Perth there are some great stretches of coast to camp on. It can be pretty windy, but if you have the right set up, you can hunker down and protect yourself from the wind. We have a few favourite spots along what is aptly known as the ‘Turquoise Coast’ and…
