Looking at the maps of the out of control wildfires near Perth in Western Australia - it seems like the Camino Salvado could be affected. We walked this evocative Camino with a group in Sept 2017. At a distance it’s hard to figure out where has actually been burnt. Would love to hear more information from anyone who knows. So sad to hear about the significant loss of homes, and all the resulting distress. May all be safe

I also have been thinking that the Camino Salvado will be affected. Watching the fires and even had ash flecks on my car today as far away as South Fremantle. I walked in 2011

From what I can see on a satellite image of recorded hot spots - it looks like the areas walked on Day 2 & 3 are affected - after the Equestrian Centre, into Walyunga National Park along the Swan River (Day 2 afternoon) & then the Kangaroo Trail & some of the Echidna Trail (Day 3 morning).

Hello Dancing rain and camino07, thank you for your post. Learnt something new again! I was not aware there was a camino in West Australia. While we are far away in Melbourne, the borders are currently open, so we could actually plan that trip if safe. But what is the background, what do we know about this camino? Has anyone walked it to give such information?

Thank you for that information Dancing Rain! i preesume you must live in WA? We hope to get to WA maybe later this year. We have bought a camper trailer, awaiting delivery, and providing birders are open, may get to WA instead of travelling overseas. Thank you for enlightening us! Corry

Hi, sopranocorry
Dom Salvado ,a Benedictine monk from Spain, arrived in Fremantle in 1846. He and another monk wound their way through the bush for 147 kms North of Perth to found New Norcia monastery .
In 2008 members of St Joseph's church in Subiaco conceived this pilgrim trail in his memory. I first saw a documentary on ABC about the first group and was interested. Thereafter St Joseph's run two groups a year. Last week in August and first week in September .I enjoyed the pilgrimage in 2011 and made a good friend from it. Due to Covid stopping my annual Camino in Spain, last September I booked to go again. Unfortunately both groups were cancelled at the last minute due to restrictions. However 17 of us met up at the church and walked the first day to Guildford ,had lunch and caught the train back. We were all given a beautiful guidebook which I hope to use in the future. Hope things improve soon and you get to WA
