Join us on the Cape to Cape Track, a breathtaking 123km trek that stretches from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin. Traverse some of the world's most stunning coastal landscapes, each day presenting a panorama of Margaret River’s pristine coastline. Our journey offers not just a walk, but a pathway to new friendships and unforgettable experiences.
Effortless Adventure with Maximum Comfort
This adventure is designed for women with a moderate level of fitness, eager to embrace the outdoors without the burden of heavy backpacking. By carrying only a daypack and walking the track in manageable stages, you’ll find joy in each step. From exceptional local cuisine to cosy accommodations and expert guides, every detail is thoughtfully curated to enhance your journey.

A Challenge that Welcomes All
No need for elite athleticism here! The Cape to Cape Track is the perfect blend of challenge and charm, featuring mostly moderate terrain with a few lengthier stretches to keep it exhilarating. The sandy shores, making up about 15-20% of the path, are our most thrilling challenge, with the remainder winding through majestic cliff tops, lush coastal heath, and whispering forests.

This tour by it's very nature is not designed for the 5 Star Traveller. It is for the girl who has an 'adventurous spirit' and is looking for a unique and rewarding 'experience' (Once in a Lifetime)! You should be able to adopt a "Go With The Flow" attitude, after-all we are in a foreign country and things don't always go to plan...this will help you chill out and therefore get the best out of your holiday.

You will also need to be mobile without assistance - some of the sights require you to be on your feet, navigating steps and uneven surfaces at times. We also have a couple of walks as part of this tour - these walks can be achieved by anyone with a general level of fitness, but again mobility is the key, as with all of our tours.

Any cancellation of travel should be in writing to Adventurous Women. The cancellation charges applicable to this tour are:


Cancellation more than 75 days prior to departure - Loss of Deposit
Between 74 and 31 days - Loss of 70% Of The Tour Cost

No refund is available after departure of a tour has commenced.
