Camp | An activity that involves an overnight stay, usually in a tent.Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or long(Fully Booked - Ask leader about waiting list) Quite simply this is my favourite campsite in the entire Gardens of Stone NP as it is situated in an area of extreme beauty as well as having the advantage of a spectacular and pristine canyon nearby which gives us pure water and seemingly endless pagodas to explore, photograph and enjoy. The sunrises and sunsets from here have to be seen to be believed with wonderful views of Pantoneys Crown, Baal Bone ridge and far beyond. This will be a weekend to submerge yourself in the realm of the senses, relax with friends and emerge refreshed and energized! Rock scrambling.

Camp | An activity that involves an overnight stay, usually in a tent.Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or long(Fully Booked - Ask leader about waiting list) On this trip we will experience the best that the Bibbulmun Track has to offer in Western Australia. From the small township of Walpole, we will travel along a series of good tracks through the towering Tingle forests, colourful heathlands, beautiful beaches, granite peaks and through the towns of Peaceful Bay and Denmark where new supplies can be purchased, allowing for lighter packs. The tracks are well marked and make for easy walking. Halfway through the walk we will have a rest day in Denmark. At each campsite there is a hut which can be used as well as water supply, toilets and tables so this is hardly roughing it! The wildflowers at this time of the year are outstanding and you can expect to also see a fair amount of wildlife including seals, quokkas, wallabies and numerous birds to name a few. In short, this is a fabulous walk and one not to be missed. Limit: 17. View
