Challenge yourself to hike 77km and raise funds to support our chaplains.
The Bibbulmun Track is a long distance walking track stretching 1,002 kilometres from Kalamunda to Albany through some of the most beautiful areas of south-west Western Australia.
Bible Society’s Bibbulmun Track Hike is celebrating 22 years of walking for a great cause. Hikers keen to do their part have covered different sections of the track over the years, raising $143,000 for Bible work while enjoying the great outdoors.
This year, hikers will be raising funds to help Bible Society Australia provide free Bibles to chaplains serving in frontline ministries such as hospitals, emergency services and prisons. Your non-tax deductible donation will help put Bibles into the hands of chaplains right across Australia.
Saturday 26th September - Meet at Carey Baptist College, Harrisdale. Hike from Carey Rd Beedalup to Beedalup Campsite (12km.)
Sunday 27th September - Hike from Beedalup Campsite to Pemberton (25.1km)
Monday 28th September - Hike from Pemberton to Warren Campsite (22.6km)

So come along and take the opportunity to learn new skills, and enjoy one of the world’s best hiking tracks.
Trekking with friends, old and new, through spectacular scenery is an enjoyable way to raise money through sponsorship, and to help place the Bible into the hands of those in need.
Raised so far
Hannah Johnson of Sports Chaplaincy Australia is a frontline chaplain who is grateful to have the word of God available to remind athletes that their value as an athlete has nothing to do with their purpose. “The reason I do it is I see the need for our athletes to be seen as people, not just performers,” she says.
“So if I come alongside them and journey with them – and hopefully do my best to reflect Christ’s love to them – they will come to know that they are more than a performer and that they can go after their dreams but with an understanding of who they actually are in Christ.”
