Taking the next step into overnight hiking can be very rewarding and a lot of fun. It’s important to be prepared and feel confident so you have an awesome experience! This is your chance to give overnight hiking a go with our Off The Beaten Track WA Guides who will assist you, educate you and answer any questions you may have.

Off The Beaten Track WA will lead you on a hike along the Bibbulmun Track through mixed jarrah forest from Sullivan Rock to Mt Cooke Campsite. After setting up camp at Mt Cooke, you will enjoy dinner to the sound of the black cockatoos song. As the sun goes down we will light the campfire and enjoy the mesmerising flames, warmth and ambience as the cool night air sets in.

On day two we will leave the heavy packs at camp and head on up to the summit of Mt Cooke and hike along the ridge to the elusive Mt Cooke Cave before returning to camp for lunch. After we have recharged, we’ll hike back to Sullivan Rock together. The comradery of a group Overnight Hike is like no other!
