Walk Highlights

The extraordinary landscapes on the Cape to Cape Track offer great variety, spanning squeaky white sand beaches, deserted beaches, secluded coves, coastal heathlands, towering forests and limestone caves unique to the location.

 

Running North-South along the coast between Cape Naturaliste (north of Dunsborough) and Cape Leeuwin (southwest of Augusta), the Cape to Cape track showcases the wild and varied scenery of the great South West region of Western Australia. 

Whilst the Cape to Cape track is the longest coastal walk in Australia, 135 kms from start to finish, we have chosen the best parts for you to walk. Depending on the season the flora and fauna will vary, from land to ocean. Spotting whales off the coast between June and December isn’t uncommon, or experiencing wildflowers from August to November. But this tour isn’t all about the walking.

Let’s not forget about the food and wine! The Margaret River Wine Region is renowned world-over for producing some top notch, award-winning drops and quality food. You'll have the opportunity to indulge in some wine tastings and purchase for enjoyment on tour in your apartment.
