MAKE A BOOKING

Complete one of the world’s great coastal walks with Adventurous Women and our partners at Inspiration Outdoors – Eight-day tour with seven days of walking, the Cape to Cape Track meanders 135 km between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin, sometimes along the beach, sometimes along cliff-tops, but nearly always with a view of the wonderful Margaret River coastline.

 

The 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!!

Itinerary

Departing from Perth at 8.00am, we reach Cape Naturaliste by lunch time. Enjoy the first of many fresh picnic lunches for the week on the lawn at the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse.

Today’s walk on the Cape to Cape track is relatively easy with mostly cliff-top and some beach walking. Keep an eye out for dolphins!

Note, as we walk on the first afternoon, please wear your hiking clothes on the bus and bring your day pack ready to go. After our walk the bus will meet us at Yallingup and then we will drive to Margaret River.

Meals: Lunch, Dinner

Some beach walking in the morning and superb coastal views all day. The red granite boulders, white sand beaches and turquoise waters are a stunning sight to be seen!

We’ll have lunch at the surfing Mecca, Injidup, visit Quinninup Falls and finish with ocean views at Moses Rock.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

This is a great day, and relatively easy – although there are a few hills and some sandy patches. The magnificent sweeping views of the coast from cliff-top vantage points, and the towering red rocks of Willyabrup are two of many highlights.

If the weather’s nice, you might enjoy a refreshing swim in the sheltered bay at Gracetown, or just soak those feet as you reflect on another great day on the Cape to Cape track.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

It’s fairly easy walking among coastal heath to Ellensbrook historic homestead, where you can enjoy morning tea and explore the grounds. The track then takes an inland route, which gives us a good appreciation of the landscape away from the ocean for a while.

After lunch we’re back on the coast, and a very pleasant beach walk takes us to Cape Mentelle. We finish the day at the Margaret River mouth – another good place for a swim if it’s warm.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

A very varied day today! We’ll head inland again to start with, and enjoy morning tea beside the Boodjidup Brook. A beach walk takes us to Redgate for lunch and then a spectacular stretch of cliff-top walking sees us reach shady Contos Campground by afternoon tea.

The final part of the day is through the cool peaceful forest on firm, easy tracks. It’s a wonderful end to a wonderful day on the Cape to Cape track. Despite the distance, today is not usually considered the most difficult.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

This morning we continue through the karri forest before making our way down to the aqua-blue waters of Hamelin Bay. This 6 km beach stretch can be very enjoyable, with the right mindset. Enjoy the peace, the view and the moment as you walk into Hamelin Bay for a picnic lunch.

After lunch it’s a short but challenging hike up to the tiny Foul Bay Lighthouse, with sweeping views back along the coast. Then before you know it, you’ll reach the end of another beautiful day.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

This can be 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 a long beach stretch where you can daydream about all that you’ve achieved this week. After that we head inland, occasionally sighting the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse, signalling the end of your walk. Your Cape to Cape track ‘end to end’ journey officially finishes at the Cape Leeuwin waterwheel but we’ll take a walk up to the lighthouse, if time permits. Tonight we will celebrate your wonderful achievement!

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Enjoy a sleep in and a leisurely breakfast this morning before we drop you into Margaret River where you can enjoy a coffee and perhaps a spot of shopping. Pick up some take-away lunch (own expense) before we head back to Perth, arriving by mid afternoon (usually between 2.30 and 3pm).

Meals: Breakfast

Fantastic multiday hike on the Bibbulmun. Great bunch of ladies, lots of laughs & beautiful weather. Not all hikes go to plan but protocols were followed and the situation was handled professionally by everyone at AW. Communication between all AW staff was fantastic & we were kept informed. I would certainly recommend hiking with Adventurous Women.
