I have made my booking, what happens now?

You have just taken the first step towards having an awesome OTBT experience! A few days before the event, you will receive an email from us confirming the meeting point, time, what to bring and an update on weather conditions. If at any point you want to find out more about the adventure that awaits you, please contact us.

How fit do I need to be to come along on an OTBT experience?

Most of our experiences are suitable for all fitness levels. We do offer the use of hiking poles and take regular breaks to allow rest time if it is needed. Some of our hikes (such as Endurance Training Hikes) are a little harder and do require a reasonable level of fitness to achieve, but these are aimed at hikers who are wanting to step up there game.

Do we carry the yoga mats with us on a pilates or yoga hike?

Yes we sure do! Please make sure your mat has a strap or you can wedge it in your back pack so you don’t have to carry it.

What is Dieback?

Dieback (Phytophthora Cinnamomi) is a pathogen that lives in soil, water and plant material and attacks plant roots restricting the uptake of water and nutrients. It is a huge threat to Australia’s biodiversity and very prominent in WA, particularly the South West. Dieback is not easily detected as infected plants can often be mistaken to be dying from drought.

Human activity such as hiking causes the greatest spread of Dieback. There is no known cure so we must help restrict the spread and protect the bush land that we love.

  • Clean your footwear before hitting the trails
  • Use boot cleaning stations where available
  • Try to remove mud and soil when it is dry with a brush
  • Pay attention to the information signs in Dieback risk areas
  • The Bibbulmun track is only for feet (no wheels).

Please remember ‘every step counts’ so keep yours clean!
