“Orchids along the Bibbulmun Track” Ian Kininmonth and Helena Studham

23 September @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Join Ian Kininmonth and Helen Studham as they recall their adventures and find out about the orchids they photographed and recorded.

“Let’s walk the Bibbulmun ?” Ian suggested to Helen, receiving only a sceptical look in response. The Bibbulmun, track running from Perth to Albany exceeds 1,000 kilometres, so it is more than just a walk in the park. What would they do? See? Talk about?  “We’ve got all the gear we need, we’re fit, we have time, and we’ll see heaps of wildflowers”. Detecting a slight softening of Helen’s attitude Ian went in with the final sales pitch. “Plus we’re sure to see lots of orchids”.

Three weeks later they hit the track on the 14th August 2020, to start 61 days of walking through country where over 400 species of orchid had been recorded.
