Cape to Cape Trail
Australia’s premier coastal long distance hike, the Cape to Cape Track.
Their highly qualified staff and guides are friendly, energetic and entertaining, with a wealth of knowledge to share about the local area and the Track’s geology, ecology, biodiversity, culture and history.
This 135 kilometres track runs north-south between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin. The Track is on a windswept limestone ridge, perched on a basement of ancient and resistant granite rocks. This long thin strip of land forms the backbone of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, and is the setting of the Cape to Cape Walk Track.
Many points along the Track are easily accessible for short or longer walks.
Wander through Western Australia’s iconic wildflowers and coastal heath, along elevated limestone ridges, across deserted beaches and rocky coves and under the karri sentinels of the hardwood forests. Walk the full length over 6-10 days or experience the highlights
