Bushwalking is the name given to the activity of hiking, tramping and rambling in Western Australia and for that matter Australia. This page is a summary page of the bushwalking walk-reports and others resources which maybe of benefit to readers interested in a bushwalking here.
Western Australia is blessed with a number of regions which have good walking if one is willing to venture off-track as well we id we have three significant bushwalking trails in the south-west of Western Australia. I have separate blog posts all three walking of these bushwalking trails which are the:
- Bibbulmun Track – I completed my end to end of the Bibbulmun Track in 2003. The Bibbulmun Track is the longest walk trail in Western Australia and is about 973 km in length.
- Cape to Cape Track – I have completed two walks of the Cape to Cape Track, a south to north end to end in November 2009 and a north to south end to end in April 2002. The Cape to Cape Track is 135 km long walk track located within the the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park which is found in the South-west coast of Western Australia (the famous Margaret River wine growing region).
- Coastal Plains Walk Trail – I have walked the Coastal Plains Walk Trail a few times. This is a nice local to Perth walk trail which can be completed in around three days.
For those that wish to venture further afield or into more unchartered areas I have also completed the following bushwalks which are of note:
- Fitzgerald River National Park – Completed an eight day bushwalk from Four Mile Beach to Quaalup Homestead in April 2006
- Nuyts Wilderness Walk Track, Walpole – Walked February 2009
Stepping outside of Western Australian I have also completed and end-to-end bushwalk of the Larapinta Trail, Northern Territory July 2005. That bushwalk is written up at the link provided and I have also posted a review of John and Monica Chapman’s guidebook of the Trail, Larapinta Trail.
