Upcoming Walks

April Walk
Gondwana Link Walk
School Holidays – April 2-11

Explore the exquisite coastal and Gondwana Link bushlands east of Albany.

Our first camp will be at Warriup, about 76km from Albany, near Cheynes Beach, and close to breathtakingly beautiful coastal scenery. We will spend several days walking the coast and granite headlands of the area and connecting with both Noongar and settler history.

On Sunday, April 7, we move camp to Chingarrup, a 500 ha Gondwana Link private conservation property in Sheoak woodland near Boxwood Hill, about 127km from Albany.

Walks are planned to Bush Heritage’s Red Moort property via the famed Ochre cliffs and Nowanup, a well-known Noongar cultural property. During this walk, we will learn a lot about the diverse South Coast flora and fauna, including mallee fowl, white-tailed black cockatoos, and much more!

What is the great walk?

Great Walks are about camping together in nature, walking the land and living in community. We organise food, walks, activities and provide equipment including a bus, kitchen facilities and a marquee for shelter. Everyone shares the responsibilities and we love having people of all ages come together. Walks are organised for interest and variety and cater to all levels of ability, with pick up points often available. The camps are family friendly, vegetarian, drug and alcohol free and encourage environmental / social care and awareness.

Where

We mainly walk in the South West of Western Australia and have occasional walks inland and further north.

When

We organise two walks per year during Autumn and Spring school holidays, plus a summer camp. Camps run for around 10 days.
