ITINERARY

Day One Starts in Perth at 9am. Travel to Walpole and walk a section of the Bibbulmun Track from John Rate Lookout back to Walpole.

Accommodation: Walpole

Day Two Today we will drive out to the Giant Tingle Tree, a massive buttressed eucalyptus tree with a hollowed out base. This is one of the unique plants found in this area. Did you know that 75% of the south west’s 7000 species of flowering plants are found nowhere else on earth except here? It’s easy walking as the Bibbulmun slowly descends to the banks of the Frankland River. From here continue walking through jarrah and marri forest to the Tree Tops Walk.

Accommodation: Walpole

Day Three The walk commences at the Tree Tops Walk, a 600m loop walk along a raised boardwalk to see the tingle forest. The Bibbulmun continues downhill through more beautiful karri forest. Head off through a forest of rare red flowering gum (Corymbia ficifolia) before the gentle descent to the coast at picturesque Conspicuous Cliffs. The track picks its way along the spectacular cliff tops, passing many superb whale watching lookouts.

Accommodation: Walpole

Day Four Today’s destination is the laid back beach settlement of Peaceful Bay, home to about 60 lucky locals. There are some great views to the West and East today when you reach the top of Conspicuous Cliffs. From Peaceful Bay we move on to the foodies hub that is Denmark Village.

Accommodation: Denmark

Day Five After a short ride on the bus to William Bay, continue along the spectacular cliff top track passing huge granite tors. There’s time for a swim at Lake Williams before continuing to Light’s Beach, one of our favourites of all time. The Bibbulmun heads inland for a while now, climbing to a high vantage point at Monkey Rock. From here you have expansive views over Wilson Inlet at Denmark. Then onwards and upwards to the highest point on this holiday – the summit of Mt Hallowell where there are more karri forests and a jumble of granite tors. Descend down the other side into Denmark.

Accommodation: Denmark

Day Six From the other side of the inlet at Denmark, the Bibbulmun continues across the Nullaki Peninsula, from where you’ll be able to see the Porongorups and, on a clear day, the Stirling Ranges to the north-east. There’s more fabulously scenic cliff top walking before descending to Lowlands Beach, a favourite with the locals who erect a shade shelter here during the summer months. On a calm day it’s a great place for a swim.

Accommodation: Denmark

 Day Seven Today we’ll hike from Lowlands Beach to Cosy Corner. After a short transfer to Cosy Corner you’ll walk back to your accommodation near Cape Howe. This is one of the most scenic coastal sections with the black dolerite cliffs of Cape Howe contrasting with the azure blue seas and pure white sands of these rarely visited beaches.

Accommodation: Albany

Day Eight Today we’ll walk from Mutton Point all the way to Albany and the end of the Bibbulmun Track. Today features more cliff top tracks with the added interest of getting up close to a large wind farm. This is the only place in the world where they are laid-back enough to allow walkers to get close enough to touch a turbine! This wind farm is on one of the most scenic sections of track and will no doubt cause some people to object, but remember that it does provide clean renewable energy for the large town of Albany. The route continues through a section of the Torndirrup National Park before descending to Frenchman Bay and Princess Royal Harbour in Albany, the foundation site of European settlement in WA.

Accommodation: Albany

 Day Nine Travel back to Perth to arrive at around 4.30pm.
