WINTER and spring are the perfect time to experience the bush. The rivers and creeks are flowing and the bush comes alive with fresh new growth and a riot of colour.
The new Bibbulmun Track Foundation calendar of events is out now and there's something for all, from day walks to overnight adventures, women's-only weekends, seminars and kids' events.
The variety of walks allows people a chance to experience the track - which stretches 1000 kilometres from Kalamunda in the Perth Hills to Albany - in ways that suit their fitness, comfort zone and skill level.
Feedback from participants suggests that many use these events to find other like-minded people to head off with on other walks, longer walks or even end-to-ends.
The wildflower season is fast approaching, so book early and treat yourself to a unique nature walk.
Choose from an easy day walk, an overnight trek or experience an eight-day all-inclusive wildflower tour highlighting the very best sections of the track.
For overnight adventures, events cater for everyone from the novice to the seasoned hiker, with extended walks into the wilderness of up to nine days.
All essential hiking gear and transport are provided and experienced guides are on hand to offer support.
Calendars can be picked up at libraries, outdoor stores or download a copy from the foundation website .
Book at bibbulmuntrack.org.au. Bookings are essential.
