In Western Australia or for that matter Australia, hiking, tramping, and rambling is known as bushwalking and so this little page is a bit of background on bushwalking in Western Australia. Western Australia is blessed with a number of regions which have good walking if one is willing to venture off-track. That said we have three significant walk trails in the south-west of WA. I have had the pleasure of walking all three trails and hence have posted details of the trails in this blog. These trails are:
- Bibbulmun Track – Completed my end to end in 2003
- Cape to Cape Track â€“ Completed south to north end to end in 2009 and a north to south end to end in April 2002
- Coastal Plains Walk Trail – Walked numerous times
I have also completed the following significant walks and have pages on same:
- Fitzgerald River National Park – Walked in April 2006
- Larapinta Trail, Northern Territory – Completed end to end in July 2005.I have added a review of John and Monica Chapman’s guidebook of the Trail, Larapinta Trail here.
- Nuyts Wilderness Walk Track, Walpole – Walked February 2009
