A three-day walk along the Bibbulmun Track through fabulous wandoo and jarrah forest with outstanding views from the top of Mt Cooke.
We begin our trek from near Gringer Creek campsite and head north through the very open flats which is typical of a wandoo forest.
There is only some undulation on the first day and although it is longest day, it is still relatively easy. We cross the Serpentine River and then camp near a stream which is part of the Canning River headwaters.
We then leave the wandoo forest and ascend the rocky southern slopes of Mt Cooke with sensational views to the south, east and west. The walk ends after traversing Sullivan Rock where we then head home around noon, refreshed and ready to tackle the short working week.
With the first day being 17km, the second 13km and the last about 7km, this 3-day trek is an excellent way to spend the WA Day long-weekend.
A great event for sectional End-to-enders trying to fill in the blanks. Includes comprehensive planning night, trip preparation manual, map, experienced guides and equipment hire. Food not included. We have organised return transport for from Murdoch Park'n'Ride rail terminal.
Sullivan Rock and Brookton Highway Bus Service
To assist walkers with transport on the Queen's Birthday long-weekend, the Foundation is running a bus service in conjunction with the Wandoo Flats and Rocky Faces trek.
Bus users do not need to book on this walk to use the service. Walkers can make a booking for either of the services on Saturday 26th and/or Monday 28th Sept listed below.
The services allow people to walk from Brookton Hwy to Sullivan Rock (or vice versa) staying at Canning Campsite and Monadnocks Campsite which suits the long-weekend time frame.
Walkers may also book individual one-way services allowing them to end their walk on Saturday, start on the Monday (making their own arrangements at the start or end of their walk respectively), or drive to Sullivan Rock (leave the car there), get the bus to Brookton Hwy and walk back to their car.
