Crown Hotel kitchen in Collie (20/09/07) where I started dumping excess food from my 10kg food pick-up.

  • Notice the moss on the tree on the left.
    Notice the moss on the tree on the left. When the mud and water was on the Track, you could usually find a detour to make life easier.
  • At least I could walk under this small fallen tree.
    At least I could walk under this small fallen tree, always allowing for the extra height of my backpack as I ducked underneath! If you click on the centre of the picture, you will find a yellow triangle marker on the log over the Track.
  • I always appreciated what other hikers or Volunteers had spent time and effort in creating.
    I always appreciated what other hikers or "Volunteers" had spent time and effort in creating. Here we have a ramp of logs and branches to make it easier to walk across a fallen tree.
  • Nobody on the far shoreline so I went skinny dipping to cool down.
    Nobody on the far shoreline so I went skinny dipping to cool down. Allowed to swim as it is not a scheme drinking water dam.
  • A cool skinny dip in the Glen Mervyn irrigation dam between Yabberup and Noggerup.
    A cool skinny dip in the "Glen Mervyn" irrigation dam between "Yabberup" and "Noggerup". "The Guide to the Bibbulmun Track norther half" lets you read about what you can do, before you get there. I looked forward to this morning swim in cold water.
  • The Track crosses the Glen Mervyn dam wall.
    The Track crosses the "Glen Mervyn" dam wall and then the "Collie Preston" road where I bumped into tourists with parked cars.
  • Good to see a full and overflowing Glen Mervyn dam just south of Collie.
    Good to see a full and overflowing "Glen Mervyn" dam just south of "Collie".
  • The Forrest Tavern bar is a must stop place at Mumballup.
    The "Forrest Tavern" bar is a must stop place at "Mumballup". The Track goes right passed the front door! Read the journal entries in the huts beforehand to find current opening hours. Every day is different and it does not stay constant either. I got lucky. Drank Tooheys Old as they did not have draught Guinness. Stout in any form has iron in it. The burns unit in "Royal Perth" hospital gave me Guinness to help my recovery many years ago, from a motorcycle accident!
  • The Forrest Tavern friendly Great Dane guard dog.
    The "Forrest Tavern" friendly Great Dane guard dog keeps an eye out for any more Bib Track walkers, heading for the watering hole! The tavern was getting a major interior upgrade which should look good.
  • A pink and grey Galah is part of the menagerie of the Forrest Tavern
    A Pink and Grey Galah is part of the menagerie of the "Forrest Tavern" when you sit outside. It was let out of it's cage, and enjoyed climbing around as it could not fly. Watch out for it nipping you with it's beak as I experienced when it climbed my arm!
  • Loved the bar stools and the stage for bands on the far right.
    Loved these outside bar stools and the stage for bands on the far right. This tavern is 100 years old. Check out the wooden plank on the inside bar, as it is spectacular. Frank in the foreground is a 73 year young ex-engineer walking the Track - shared many huts with him, and the other guy is a biker- crane driver, with his Harley parked out front. We talked, drank and ate for over an hour. Everyone wants to know what the Bib is really like.
