About this Walk

Signing up for an epic challenge to raise money for charity doesn’t have to mean running a marathon, climbing a mountain or fighting your office-mates. The Bibbulmun Big Walk is designed to be a more inclusive way to push your physical limits and raise funds for Alzheimer's WA.

 

This doesn’t mean it's going to be easy. Don’t underestimate the amount of time you’ll be on the move and the toll that takes on your feet. If you’re new to the long-distance walking game it might be wise to start getting in some walking now. It will be an undeniably rewarding experience to conquer such an epic distance. 

Based on our experience, your team-mates and support crew will be absolutely crucial to getting through the walk, so choose the best.

We've purposely chosen this route to challenge you at the same time giving you an opportunity to experience the World Famous Bibbulmun Track.

  • Grab your friends and enter a team or go for a solo challenge

  • Raise vital funds for Alzheimer's WA

  • Enjoy an epic day out in nature

  • It's a walk, not a race

  • Be prepared for plenty of huffing, puffing and laughing out loud

Big Walk Info

WHERE WE WALK


Starting from the Northern Terminus in Kalamunda, the track passes through Jorgensen Park, and then enters Kalamunda National Park where we follow Piesse Gully with great granite boulder formations. A short side trip to Rocky Pool and then continue the climb up from the valley. Passing through jarrah and marri forest, we eventually get to the Calamunnda Camel Farm (9km).This is the first check point and team transition location with water and bathrooms available. After a short break, we continue another 2km to Hewett's Hill Hut. From here we keep heading South via the Golden View Lookout, with expansive views of the surrounding area, Lake C Y O'Connor and Mundaring Weir. After crossing the Weir wall, we follow the pipeline for a short while, past the historic Mundaring Weir Hotel and then wind our way through mixed jarrah and banksia forest on the side of the Helena Valley until reaching the half way point at the Perth Hills Discovery Centre (20km from start, 11km from Camel Farm). With bathrooms, shelters and picnic areas, we break here for lunch and any duo or quad team transition area. Once refreshed, we begin the return journey along the same track back to Kalamunda. The final checkpoint is again at Calamunnda Camel Farm (31km from start, 11km from Discovery Centre).It's then the final 9km stretch back to Kalamunda and into the Kalamunda Tavern to enjoy a well-earned celebratory beverage!
