Take in Geographe’s natural beauty in the best possible way; on foot. Qantas Magazine (Jan 2018) claims the hottest holiday activities in Australia right now is – walking. Yes…it’s time to throw your walking boots in your bag. Whether you’re after a gentle stroll or a strenuous hike, this region provides many options.
Keen to get off the grid? The Bibblumun Track traverses some of the region’s most beautiful backcountry. It’s very much a DIY holiday. Use of the trail is free, while a small payment is required to stay in the huts along the way. They’re equipped with composting toilets and basic showers, but you need to carry your food and sleeping bag. Bring a Sat phone too, as sadly internet connections are patchy at best. Alternatively, we recommend staying at one of the luxurious accommodation options located just off the track! During summer, take the Collie to Balingup section that passes past Glen Mervyn Dam. It’s a great place to cool off or just watch the sunlight reflect off the ripples.
Not up for a big trek. We suggest taking a walk in one of our many National Parks and State Forests.
