HikeWest plans to publish an online resource and/or handy guide book for walks of the Southwest Region; mainly circuit day walks and multi-day bushwalks, and mostly of minimum 15km length. These will mostly not duplicate bushwalks that are already online elsewhere, but will include some loops off the Bibbulmun Track and Cape to Cape Track. They will give experienced walkers opportunities and motivation to reach many excellent locations in the southwest that are bypassed by the Bibbulmun Track.
As of late November 2022, a draft of the book is with DBCA – Parks and Wildlife for feedback prior to publication.
Many of the walks will intentionally be reasonably adventurous to give walkers opportunities to challenge themselves beyond the more developed trails. The resource will help restore some excellent, long-overlooked SW walk areas to the schedules of today’s bushwalkers.Read More
