This is one of a series of eight day walks on the Bibbulmun Track in Western Australia. The Bibbulmun Track is one of the world's great long distance walk trails, stretching 1000km from Kalamunda on the outskirts of Perth, to the historic town of Albany on the south coast. This walk starts at Sullivan Rock, just over an hour's drive south of Perth. The Track leading toward Mt Cooke is generally relatively flat. It crosses a broad and interesting creek system and passes through stands of sheoak, banksia and jarrah. After reaching Mt Cooke campsite the Track ascends to the summit of Mt Cooke, the highest point in the Darling Range, at 582 metres. The strenuous climb is rewarded with spectacular views. The Bibbulmun Track offers a wide range of experiences, from a gentle stroll to enjoy the peace and beauty of the natural environment, to an epic eight week adventure camping out at the 49 campsites and enjoying the hospitality of nine communities along the way. Those that walk every step of the way can be registered as end-to-enders.

This is a wonderful bushwalk! So excited to have finally found the cave.
It was a hit day, son it was tough. Highly enjoyable though.

Probably not very hard if you were to take your time. I completed the hike in under 3.5hours and found it challenging to do so. Great hike though!

Easy enough 4-5 hour walk. Hard is an exaggeration.

Great hike around and over Mt. Cooke in a loop.
Full loop Distance 11km
Moderate to Easy - but caution on the open Granite rock face if WET is very SLIPPERY
Parked cars on gravel road close to base, then walked northerly direction back along the same gravel road that we drove in on and then further around the base to the Bibulmun Track Hut, then followed then Bibulmun Track up and over Mt Cooke and down along the Bibulmun Track to the gravel road to the parked cars.
