A guide will accompany you as you walk between 8 and 19 km each day. The total distance walked is approximately 100 km. Each day we resume the walk from where we finished the previous day.
The walk is moderate, with some challenging, hilly days. By carrying only a day pack people with a moderate level of fitness will be able to complete the walk. We recommend that you do some training first, as preparation always makes the experience more enjoyable.
Guides will carry morning tea, first aid kit, satellite phone etc. You just carry what you need for the walk. This might include water, camera, a jacket and, on some days, your lunch.
The plan may alter depending on local conditions and weather.
Day 1 Drive from Perth, walk Pemberton to Stirling Rd
It’s a full day today, starting at 8 am when we will pick you up in Perth CBD. We’ll be in Pemberton for lunch and begin our walk from there.
The walk today is fairly easy and mostly flat with some short hills. It’s firm underfoot, including a section of bitumen road and path. We’ll pass the lovely Lefroy Brook and Big Brook Dam as we walk through some nice forest with good smells.
Day 2 Stirling Rd to Carey Rd
Today we wander through mixed forests of jarrah, marri and karri trees on fairly flat and gentle gradients.
We’ll pass through the Beedelup Campsite at about lunchtime and then the Beedelup Falls shortly afterwards. After this it’s a gradual incline to the end of the day.
Day 7 Tom Rd to Donnelly River Village
After checking out of our accommodation we head off for our final walk into Donnelly River Village. It’s fairly flat and easy walking through mixed forest – a great opportunity to reflect on your achievement this week.
We will have lunch at Donnelly Village before driving back to Perth, arriving around 6 pm.
