These Autumn school holidays are the perfect time to get the kids and the whole family out on the Track and into the bush. Bushwalking is a fun and healthy outdoor activity which can be enjoyed by all the family.
The Bibbulmun Track, Western Australia’s world-class long distance walk trail, is right on our doorstep, stretching over 1,000km from the Perth Hills to Albany, through some of the most beautiful and varied natural areas of Australia’s South West.
The Bibbulmun Track Foundation is running two events for the kids these April school holidays, Camp Cooking for Kids and Dr Dolittle Goes Bush. These hands-on events are a great way to get kids amongst nature and away from the X-Box and PlayStation.
Experienced guides will keep the kids occupied while parents or grandparents can sit back and enjoy just being in the outdoors. Both events include a short walk on the Bibbulmun Track.
