Adventurous Women are delighted to be teaming up with Inspiration Outdoors once again, to provide a Women Only “end-to-end” walk, on Western Australia’s iconic Cape to Cape Track.   


Cape To Cape Walk for Women

This is not just a walk....it’s an experience like no other!  Breathtaking views, great company, friendly and knowledgeable guides, a little indulgence mixed with a little adventure ….and as always, lots of laughs.


The tour is 8 days, with a total of 7 days walking - you will complete the full Cape to Cape “end-to-end”, walking approximately 20km/day, with the total distance being 135km.  Cape to Cape is a challenging walk, made very achievable though, by carrying only a day pack and returning each evening to comfortable accommodation, a hot shower, glass of wine and a great meal!  Big Bonus is that we only have to unpack once!!



Tour Highlights:
- Top Ten Best Walks in Australia (National Geographic)
- Spectacular coastlines & cliff-tops
- Restaurant quality food
- No camping or heavy packs
- Karri trees and spring wildflowers
- Complete 'end to end'
- Accommodation in the heart of the Margaret River region
- Dolphin and whale sightings





Itinerary:

Day 1: Drive from Perth, walk Cape Naturaliste to Yallingup (14 km)

Day 2: Yallingup to Moses Rock (17.5 km)
Some beach walking in the morning, superb coastal views all day. We lunch at the surfing Mecca, Injidup, visit Quinninup Falls and finish at Moses Rock.
B L D

Day 3: Moses Rock to Gracetown (16 km)
A few hills today, compensated for by magnificent sweeping views of the coast. Some sand and some cliff-top walking.
B L D

Day 4: Gracetown to Margaret River mouth (18 km)
Easy coastal walking to Ellensbrook historic homestead, followed by an interesting inland stretch. A pleasant beach walk takes us to the spectacular Cape Mentelle. We finish the day at the Margaret River mouth.
B L D

Day 5: River mouth to Boranup Forest (26 km)
A very varied day today! We’ll enjoy morning tea beside the Boodjidup Brook, a beach walk to Redgate, a spectacular stretch of cliff-top walking and then into the cool peaceful forest to finish the day. Despite the distance, today is not usually considered the most difficult.
B L D

Day 6: Boranup Forest to Cosy Corner (21.5 km)
We continue through the karri forest then down to the blue waters of Hamelin Bay for a usually pleasant beach stretch. Next is a challenging hike up to Foul Bay Lighthouse with sweeping views.
B L D

Day 7: Cosy Corner to Cape Leeuwin (21 km)
An exciting last day, especially if it's windy! Much of the walking is along a limestone ledge close to the sea, complete with blowholes! There is also a 6km beach stretch. Our 'end to end' journey finishes at the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse. Tonight we will celebrate your wonderful achievement!

Day 8: Return to Perth.
We will pick up lunch on the way home (own expense) and arrive back in Perth by mid afternoon.
