Bibbulum Track

This is a walk in planning for mid 2012 and I am looking for up to 3 walking partners. The pace will be gentle (I will be 57yo by then)and I have walked only 120km of the Alpine Track (Main Range and Jagungal)as experience. I am cautious in my expectations and will be well prepared. I am not, however, trying to break any records. I prefer people who are flexible in their attitudes, easy going, able to laugh at themselves and also able to leave any gung-ho male bravado at home!

Greenbushes Loop

Located 2.5 hours south of Perth on the South West Highway, the Greenbushes Loop is a rewarding 16km trail (4-6 hours approx) that is worth checking out on your next trip to the area. Setting off from the Greenbushes Discovery Centre in the heart of town, the trail visits several historic town sites such as Schwenke's Dam, remnant of the old Vultan Tin Mine and Mt Jones Dam.

Included on the loop is a section of the world famous Bibbulmun Track that takes in the beautiful forest and sweeping views of the Blackwood farming valley. After leaving the Bibbulmun Track, the trail makes its way back to the town of Greenbushes where you can reward yourself with a tasty treat from the cake shop or a well earned drink from one of the two pubs in town. This trail won’t disappoint and is well worth the detour if you are planning a holiday in the South West.

Mount Bruce is the second-tallest peak in Western Australia at 1235m and lies about 36km west of the park office. The walking tracks on the mountain provide a great opportunity to view the Marandoo Mine Site located to the south. The easiest walk is the Marandoo View which is a 500m walk and takes about 30 minutes round trip. For a slightly harder walk, you can take the Honey Hakea Track which is a 4.6km round trip that is about a 3 hour journey.

Rails to Trails Cowaramup to Margaret River

The trail was once a part of the old railway network that was built during the timber boom. The trail begins or ends (depending where you start) at Cowaramup and finishes at Margaret River. Approximately 13.5km of trail has been developed as a multi-use trail for walking, cycling and horse riding. The trail is wide enough for two horses to walk comfortably side by side. The trail follows the alignment of the Discontinued Busselton-Flinders Bay Railway line

Along the 5 kilometres north of Margaret River there are numerous bridges crossing a major river and creeks and streams of varying sizes. The trail is easy to navigate with picnic areas along the way. The spectacular birdlife includes yellow robins, parrots and blue wrens and the wildflowers are stunning in Spring (September to December). As it was a railway, the gradient is relatively flat, and the terrain is generally gentle.

Walk Around Lake Leschenaultia

Located within the Shire of Mundaring this was a great bushwalk around the very popular Lake Leschenaultia.
A very easy walk, perfect for young kids to check out native Australian plants before a swim in the lake.
Also saw a pair of very cute fairy wrens.
