The famous Bibbulmun Track is one of the world’s great long distance walk trails, stretching 1000km from Kalamunda in the Perth Hills, to Albany on the south coast, winding through the heart of the scenic South West of Western Australia.
The hiking options along the Bibbulmun in Mt Cooke can give you magnificent views and provide a day hike without much of a drive from Perth.
Mt Cooke is the highest peak in the Darling Ranges and highlights typical darling scarp bushland of ghost gums, jarrah and banksias. the 22km return hike will let you explore the elusive hidden cave just past the summit of Mt Cooke, along with plenty of giant boulders, and large sloping granite outcrops.
The Northern terminus of the Bibbulmun Track is located in Kalamunda, and is a phenomenal way to start your experience on the Track.
This 20 km one way hike from Kalamunda to Mundaring showcases the sweeping views of Beelu National Park, Kalamunda National Park, and the historic Mundaring Weir. This is a great introduction to long distances on the Bibbulmun Track, and shows you what a day hike on the trail feels like
Just like the section from Sullivan Rock to My Cooke, the views offered for just a short drive from Perth are spectacular. We begin at the magnificent Sullivan Rock, which is a granite rock covered in beautiful, delicate moss and a great introduction of the natural beauty to come. With two great climbs to the half way point on this tour, prepare yourself for some challenges, and of course incredible views when you get there.
If you are after a long distance section of the Track, with some of the most scenic views of all, then Walpole to Denmark is it, covering about 130km and taking about 7 days to complete.
Experience the magnificent beaches, beautiful bays, coastal cliffs, and majestic forests.
Explore Greens Pool and Elephant Rocks near Denmark, and the Valley of the Giants in Walpole.
