This is a self guided/supported tour. No guides accompany you, however we assist in gear supplies, delivery and transport. This tour is suitable for those new to overnight experiences on the Bibbulmun Track and suitable to novice canoeists.

The Adventure:

Day 1 sees you meander at your own pace along the Bibbulmun Track from Dwellingup to Swamp Oak Hut. The Track winds its way through naturally occurring Jarrah and Marri forest and some plantation forest. The final leg into Swamp Oak Hut sees you walk along an elevated ridge with views of the Murray River valley before dropping down into Swamp Oak Hut. Day 2 sees you continue your walk veering off the Bibbulmun Track to meet Dwellingup Adventures staff with your canoe at Island pool. Here we swap to canoe mode and take your hiking equipment back to Dwellingup. This 6km section from Island Pool to Baden Powel Water Spout (Dwaarlinjirraap) features a couple of small rapids, faster moving channels and wide pools, along the forested river banks of the Murray River. We pick up canoes and walking party at Baden Powell Water Spout (Dwaarlindjirraap) at 2pm.

The Tour:

Your party arrives at Dwellingup Adventures and Waypoints Café, situated in the Dwellingup Trails and Visitors Centre at a time of your choosing. Customer toilets, lockers and laundromat are available at the Centre. 10am is generally a good time to start. If you are an experienced hiker then a later time may suit. We complete the paperwork for the canoe hire and you pay and fit you out with safety wear for the next day. See (here) for extra hire equipment. If you prefer to have your overnight gear bought out to the Hut, rather than carrying it, we can provide this service for an extra cost. Otherwise, we can bring out resupplies on day 2 including pre-ordered food from our Waypoints Café. When we meet you at Island Pool on day 2 at 10am, we bring out your requested supplies, leave you your canoe/s and take your hiking equipment away. We will meet your canoe party at Baden Powell Water Spout (Dwaarlindjirraap) at 2pm and transport you back to Dwellingup.

The Inclusions:
One, two or three person canoe/s complete with paddles, buoyancy vests and water sports helmets. A coloured copy of the Bibbulmun Track section from Dwellingup to Swamp Oak Hut and a laminated Murray River map are supplied. Our Trails shop has maps of the full sections of the Bibbulmun Track that you may purchase. See below for extra hire equipment.
