DAY 1

Drive from Perth, walk Cape Naturaliste to Yallingup

14km walk

Departing from Perth at 8am, 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 and get to know your companions for the week.

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

Includes lunch and dinner.

DAY 2

Yallingup to Moses Rock

18km walk (or 10km option)

Some beach walking in the morning, and superb coastal views all day. The red granite boulders, white sand beaches and turquoise waters can be astoundingly beautiful.

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

Includes breakfast, lunch and dinner.

DAY 3

Moses Rock to Gracetown

16km walk

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.

Includes breakfast, lunch and dinner.

 

DAY 4

Gracetown to Margaret River

18km walk (or 12km option)

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 you a good appreciation of the landscape away from the ocean for a while.

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

Includes breakfast, lunch and dinner.

DAY 5

River mouth to Boranup Forest

25km walk (or 14km option)

A very varied day today! Head inland again to start with, and enjoy morning tea beside the Boodjidup Brook. A beach walk takes you to Redgate for lunch and then a spectacular stretch of clifftop walking sees you 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.

Includes breakfast, lunch and dinner.

DAY 6

Boranup Forest to Cosy Corner

21km walk (or 14km option)

This morning continue through the karri forest before making your way down to the aqua-blue waters of Hamelin Bay. This 6km 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.

Includes breakfast, lunch and dinner.

DAY 7

Cosy Corner to Cape Leeuwin

21km walk

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 head inland, occasionally sighting the Cape Leeuwin lighthouse, signalling the end of your walk. Your ‘end to end’ journey officially finishes at the Cape Leeuwin waterwheel but you can take a walk up to the lighthouse, if time permits.

Tonight you will celebrate your wonderful achievement!

Includes breakfast, lunch and dinner.

DAY 8

Return to Perth

Enjoy a sleep in and a leisurely breakfast this morning before you will be dropped into Margaret River where you can enjoy a coffee and perhaps a spot of shopping.

Pick up some take-away lunch (own expense) before you head back to Perth, arriving by mid afternoon (usually between 2.30 - 3pm)

Includes breakfast.
