The Bibbulmun Track is world famous. It is a long distance walk trail (one of the longest in the world), stretching 1000km from the Perth Hills all the way down to Albany on the south coast.
The track winds through the scenic South West of Western Australia.
For the more seasoned and adventurous walkers there are shelters along the trail for overnight camping.
For the more casual walker (who may prefer to stroll for an hour or two in scenic surroundings) the track is easily accessible in many places along the way.
The track starts in the Darling Ranges and finishes at Albany on the south coast.
It passes through many towns such as Dwellingup, Collie, Balingup, Donnelly River, Pemberton, Northcliffe, Walpole and Denmark.
I spent a week or two exploring different sections of the trail starting at the picturesque Donnelly River and finishing up just past Walpole on the southern coast.
The Karri forests past Walpole were particularly pristine!
Along the way I captured many different sounds of the forests.
I put these sounds together to create a Soundscape depicting a day in the forest from dawn to dusk. It is called Bibbulmun Cathedral and attempts to capture the spirit of the forest.
The bush walk is ever changing and at times breath taking, for example when you reach cliff-tops above the Southern Ocean.
This magnificent trail winds its way through diverse areas of natural and wild beauty; from jarrah forests to the giant karri and tingle trees.
You will come across a variety of flowers and trees, low-lying scrub heath lands, lakes and rivers. There are very many mammals, reptiles and birds that thrive in these areas.
Even just an hour or two on this track will leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Highly Recommended!
