Spotlight Bushwalking WA
New website!

Bushwalking WA – bushwalkingwa.org.au – is the peak body and voice for bushwalking / hiking in Western Australia. BWA is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit association committed to promoting bushwalking and the interests of bushwalkers in the State, in keeping with our vision of Better Bushwalkinpg for Western Australia. There’s no better way than bushwalking to discover and value the natural beauty of our parks and forests.

Working Groups
Rather than appointing formal committees to projects and issues, BWA maintains a flexible approach by harnessing the skills, experience and energy of members, associates and other volunteers through more informal working groups led by the Executive Officer.

Adventure Walks of the Southwest
BWA plans to publish a handy guide book and/or online resource for walks of the Southwest Region; mainly circuit day walks and multi-day bushwalks, and mostly of minimum 15km length. These will mostly not duplicate bushwalks that are already online elsewhere, but will include some loops off the Bibbulmun Track and Cape to Cape Track. They will give experienced walkers opportunities and motivation to reach many excellent locations in the southwest that are bypassed by the Bibbulmun Track.

Murujuga Rock Art

Is industry affecting Burrup Rock Art?

Save Murujuga Rock Art Crowd Funding

Indigenous tourism: preserving culture and creating jobs – One operator, in Western Australia’s south west, is converting the most unlikely of places into a tourism and training venture. outbounding

Dumbleyung Pub – 70 y.o. publican Kaye Edwards has just re-opened the Grand Olde Dumbleyung Inn

What’s sacred now? – Burrup Peninsula rock carvings are among more than 1,000 sites the WA government has removed or blocked from its Aboriginal heritage register after creating a narrower definition of sacred sites in 2012. The Supreme Court has thrown out those changes, but the government now wants a single public servant to determine sacred sites.

The lessons of history – As the Government contemplates the eviction of over 100 remote Indigenous communities in Western Australia, a former Liberal Minister for Aboriginal Affairs is urging the Prime Minister to remember the lessons of history.

Creating an underground map of WA – Travellers in WA are being encouraged to stop and collect soil samples in a massive citizen science project. MicroBlitz is enticing farmers, families, school children, environmental groups and grey nomads to collect soil samples on their travels or properties which will allow University of Western Australia researchers to build a baseline map.

Painting WA’s wilderness – Cape Arid is a remote national park on the far southeastern coast of Western Australia. Botanical artist Philippa Nikulinsky has been making trips there, and to other wild places in WA, often alone, for over forty years.

Biodiversity hotspots in the southwest region of Western Australia – Perth based journalist and author Victoria Laurie talks about the flora and fauna of Western Australia’s southwest region, a ‘biodiversity hotspot’ where large numbers of species are concentrated, but that place is under threat.

Taking down the fences – A story about land clearing, ecological damage and restoration in Western Australia. But it’s also a story of physical and spiritual healing that includes whitefellas and the land’s original inhabitants – the Nyungar people

Wedge Island – On a rugged and secluded stretch of coastline a few hours north of Perth is perched a settlement that time forgot. Wedge Island’s shacks are delightfully ramshackle: makeshift creations fashioned out of corrugated iron and scrap metal, and furnished with mismatched hand-me-downs.

War games and wildlife management: a parable of our times – Perth forester and historian Roger Underwood looks back to 1989 when, as part of his participation in a wildlife conservation program on Barrow Island, in Western Australia, he had an unexpected encounter with a training exercise conducted by the army’s Special Air Service.

The past and the future of the Pilbara – The film ‘Red Dog’ has been a huge success. Set in the 1970s, it’s based on a real life canine that lived in and around Dampier in WA

WA and the resources boom – Geraldine Doogue, the born and bred WA girl, returns to her home state. Western Australia is undergoing massive change and we explore the impact of the resources boom in Perth, the regional city of Geraldton and the booming Pilbara region. How will WA change in the face of such prosperity?

Red Dirt Dreaming Part One – The Kimberley – The future of The Kimberley is up for grabs—mining, native title, the environment and money are all part of the complex mix.

Red Dirt Dreaming Part Two – The Pilbara – The Pilbara is raking in the cash for Australia but many see it as ruined, pristine environments and cultural heritage lost to mining, towns overrun by FIFO workers.

Burrup’s rock art: the protracted World Heritage listing – For decades people who have been aware of the vast and precious outdoor art collection known as the Burrup rock art, on the Dampier Archipelago in Western Australia, have been calling for World Heritage listing. Six years ago the area became Australian National Heritage-listed. Last year the Australian Heritage Council recommended World Heritage listing. So what’s holding it up? While mounting pressures from industry and visitors potentially threaten the engravings, the Federal Government has issued some new challenges it wants met, before it will approve the listing.

Sense of Place: Tim Winton on the inlet at Waychinicup – Celebrated and beloved author Tim Winton nominates the Western Australian inlet at Waychinicup as a place of personal refuge.

The Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) is the largest provider of nature-based tourism and recreation opportunities in Western Australia. DEC manages more than 26 million hectares (or nine per cent) of lands and waters in national parks, conservation parks and reserves, marine parks and reserves, regional parks, nature reserves, State forest and timber reserves that receive around 11 million visits each year.

Ever wondered what that plant was in a WA national park? Now you can find out:
Western Australian National Park Species Lists

With the help of NatureMap, we can intersect the vouchered specimen flora records from the WA Herbarium with the DPaW estate boundaries for national parks to provide current information on the names and numbers of plant taxa and conservation taxa in each listed National Park. If a list of taxa is presented, but no points are showing, then you will need to use the ‘zoom out’ tool to the right of the map until they are displayed. Some conservation taxa may have been masked from view at this scale. Statistics, reports and downloads still reflect all queried species. See the Registration page for details.

Beagle Bay
Beagle Bay is located approximately 125km north of Broome near the western coast of the Dampier Peninsula. Beagle Bay has a resident population of approximately 300 to 350 people, as well as has a significant satellite population who use the community as a social, service and resource hub.

Broome
Broome’s Yawuru people sign Australia’s largest native title deal – It’s taken 16 years, but yesterday finally saw the historic signing of a series of land-use and native title agreements for the Yawuru people around Broome. Hailed as ushering in a ‘new era’ of economic opportunity and a place in the ‘real’ economy, the deal delivers the Yawuru people several thousand hectares of valuable residential, commercial and industrial freehold land in a booming area. Together with Indigenous leader Patrick Dodson, senior Yauwuru spokesman Peter Yu was a lead negotiator for Australia’s largest native title deal. The agreement delivered a parcel of land valued at $197 million but it comes with many challenges, and Indigenous leaders say that the commercial opportunities on offer must not be at the expense of Broome’s unique style and ethos.

Kalgoorlie
As local historian and prospector Scott Wilson explains, the street is named after Paddy Hannan, a prospector who was the first to find gold at Kalgoorlie and the square is named after St Barbara, the patron saint of miners. For the hundreds of prospectors who came to the town after gold was discovered in 1893, the help of St Barbara would have come in handy.

Miners hall of fame takes visitors deep underground in Kalgoorlie

Saint Barbara is the patron saint of miners, sea farers and those who use explosives.

The top of Kalgoorlie’s wealth was reached around the end of the 19th century, which can still be seen from the great public buildings constructed around that time.

WA currently supplies 75 percent of Australia’s total gold production and about 8 per cent world-wide. Much of it is dug from the ground along Kalgoorlie’s Golden Mile (named because it covered an area of a square mile, not because it was a mile long), which has more than 3,000 km of old underground workings and has yielded more than 50,000,000 ounces of gold (or over 1500 tonnes) so far. You can see the workings of the modern day mining industry at the lookout over the Super Pit on the outskirts of Kalgoorlie, an enormous hole in the ground 4km long, 1.5km wide and 400m deep.

A statue of Paddy Hannan, the first man to discover gold in Kalgoorlie, sits at the main intersection on Hannan Street. Take note of his always full water bag.

Pinnacles
The Pinnacles are pillars and remnants of sandy limestone which have been shaped by weathering and erosion. The limestone formed by consolidation of extensive dunes of shelly sand along WA’s coast which built up during and after an interglacial episode around 130 000 years ago. Rainwater percolated through the dunes, dissolving limy material in one place and depositing it another, cementing the sand grains together into rock.
