Thank you wonderful VT Members - particularly those in the Southern Hemisphere - who encourage the unique nature of having their names (and Yours) on a Western Australian 'Dunny' (meaning a bush version of a loo, toilet, John, khazi, bog etc)Door - on our Bibbulmun Track. As a Life member I have donated A$500 on behalf of my family to excellent project. It is an environmental move to contain the toilet waste rather than allowing it to exist about 100 feet or 30 meteres below the surface in what is commonly called a dry drop toilet. Funds raised will help underground tank installation for each of the forty-eight shelters which range from about 10-18 kilometers apart - based on a days walk, depending on terrian etc. Incidentally, the 'Bibbulmun' part acknowledges the Aboriginal origins of wandering families surviving on fruit and berries and moving north- south with the annual cycle of ripening - plus killing kangaroos, small marsupials, collecting emu, bush foods and herbs - 'tucker' etc for meat.

Support the program, visit the website
donate and walk the Track as a lifetime achievement - excellent support and volunteers available - OR just send a message Bibbulmun Track Office This message also acknowledges the Elders, their descendants and contributions of the Nyoogar (or Noongar) people of the south west corner of Australia.
