A Journey from Boys to Men

In 2000, Mr Greg Peck, the Scotch College Boarding House master at the time, decided that some of the ‘boys from the bus’ needed to get away from the city and head back to nature. A perfect opportunity was to walk the Bibbulmun Track. A number of the boys who were in boarding, live somewhere along or nearby the 1000km Track and it was therefore a double win for those boys who were heading home.

It began as a walk here or there but soon turned into more of a structured programme. It…

At the peak of the conflagration nine separate fires were burning.…

The Way of the Waugal

Graham and Ella Reeks were standing, staring, walking, driving their way around Australia. Steve Sertis from the Bibb Track Foundation was lucky enough to share a campsite with them on a recent walk on the Cape to Cape Track.  Naturally Steve told them all about the Bibbulmun Track. With a little advice from the Foundation, they set off to walk from Northcliffe to Walpole.  Read about their journey…

Dear Linda

I have just returned from two short stints out on the track, have some snaps but don't know how to attach them, any hints.

The trach around the summit and norther decline has been cut up by dirt bikers, I have told Gwen about this.

The latest rain has freshened up the bush and was a delight to be out there, Had three ladies with me who were track virgins, they loved it. The 75 youngster fund the going a bit tough at time but will be going out again.

 

Thanks for your help.

 

Yours Aye

Paul Harris (Captain Mad Dog)

Thank you Linda...the Foundation provides great support with referrals etc and I try my best to make sure those people are looked after. My view is to support not necssarily compete with you guys.
I have been a bit slack with my maintenance duties, but Gwen has given me the stern reminders and things are all good now that I have got up to date with my duties :-)
Looks like this website needs some promoting (judging by the low activity) so something I am keen to push in my newsletter and general discussions with clients. it has enormous potential.
