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.


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!!

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).

Bibbulmun Overnighter - Pack n Camp Perth Hills Discovery Centre WA

Sat 3rd October 2020 | Suanne

Apart from the Noisy group at the campsite, I thoroughly enjoyed my overnighter.Being the first time I have carried all my gear in my pack, I learned about how to wear my pack and weight distribution. Through talking with other group members I learned what was absolutely necessary and unnecessary to take, and alternative items I could use on a trek. I met a lovely bunch of ladies who I hope to catch up with again. Our leader Sue O is amazing, sharing her knowledge about the flora and fauna of our bush and generally looking out for us all ensuring our health and wellbeing and safety at all times. A truely memorable hike. Thank you AW

An absolutely amazing weekend learning the ropes with the patient and kind Sue! She was a wealth of knowledge and taught us so much about our gear and how to set up, but also her knowledge of the wildflowers and the track was amazing! I would not hesitate to recommend Adventurous Women to anyone who wants to give hiking a go in a safe and supportive environment.

I went into this walk with much trepidation; it was my first connection with Adventurous Women and I had not had time to train as much as I would normally. This particular trail also held great personal meaning for me. I felt supported and cared for from the moment I met the group. Sue O and Jazzy were our leaders for the trail and ensured each of us had everything we needed to complete the journey right down to foot care. The food was plentiful and nourishing, there were numerous rest and care stops and each of us were encouraged along the way. I cannot recommend Adventurous Women, Sue O and Jazzy enough. Thanks also go to the other women on the journey for their love and support.

I went into this walk with much trepidation; my first with Adventurous Women and also well short of the training I would normally undertake. It was an emotional journey for me for personal reasons and I wasn’t sure I could get through.

Sue O and Jazzy were so supportive, so attentive and so caring, we could not fail. The support was amazing, the food was varied, plentiful and nourishing and the journey was everything I had hoped and needed.

I also want to include a thank you to the other 9 ladies who traveled this road with me. Their company and care was lovely. I cannot recommend AW enough and have already booked two more adventures.

The Camino Salvado was another successful tour from AW that I was able to tick off my bucket list ... and as always such a well organised and researched tour. The history lesson on Dom Salvado and the Benedictine Monks was very informative, giving an insight into what a visionary monk he was. The walking pace was relaxed and very achievable, with plenty of rest stops and lots of support and encouragement during the more difficult sections. The breaks and meals were delicious and well catered for, meeting all my needs for a Gluten Free diet - no concerns there. There was much fun had, great conversations held and new friendships created.... 5* experience.
