Day 1 | (Departing 6:30am) Drive Day & Pemberton – Warren Campsite (14 km)

After driving down to Pemberton in the South West of WA you will kick off day one of hiking at the Cascades in Gloucester National Park. You will begin the hike by walking through a tall and lush karri forest with moss covered fallen trees and thick karri hazel undergrowth. The fungi throughout the forest is incredible! You’ll pass through farmland and some stunning rolling hills, before entering the forest again towards Warren River. A steep ascent up to Warren campsite and home for the night! Day 1 is a big effort, but you’ll be rewarded with a hot track meal and a campfire (weather permitting).

Day 2 |  Warren Campsite – Schafer Campsite (22 km)

A nice downhill to start the day to the very special River Road Bridge. Today we will weave between wide and narrow track through lush karri forest with plenty more fungi on display! We’ll get even more spectacular views of the Warren River today before we move through some farmland before reaching Schafer Dam and campsite. Today is a very enjoyable yet long day of hiking with amazing scenery to distract you from the hills. You’ll be in awe of the stunning forest around you as you’re completely immersed in nature along the Bibbulmun!

Day 3 | Schafer Campsite – Northcliffe (14.5 km)

The views from camp looking down at the dam are just spectacular, but alas you must continue with your hike as today is day 3 and your final day on the track. Today the forest is a mix of karri and marri/jarrah as you move along a fairly flat trail towards Northcliffe. There will be some lovely green pastures to hike alongside before you head back deep into the forest and the lovely Gardner River.

Before you know it, you’ll be walking into the town of Northcliffe and checking in to local accommodation signifying you have completed three days on the Bibbulmun track! After a hot shower, you’ll enjoy a delicious dinner at the local pub and celebrate our adventure together.

Day 4 | (Arrive back in Perth by 2pm)

Check out & drive back to Perth.
