8 Day WA Cape to Cape Walk

  • Trek from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin
  • Visit Margaret River, Boranup, Yallingup & more
Includes all meals, transfers & accom.

The Cape to Cape is one of the most stunning multi-day walking tracks in W.A. Stretching from Cape Naturaliste near Busselton all the way down to Cape Leeuwin west of Augusta, the 123km trail covers a myriad of diverse landscapes, from wild and rocky coastline to towering eucalyptus forest, wildflower meadows and more. This eight day highlights tour will showcase it at its very best.

After an easy transfer from Perth, check-in to your motel base in the wine mecca of Margaret River and then let the real adventure begin! Over several days you’ll encounter fiery granite boulders, blinding white beaches, olive green heathland and turquoise waters. Breathe in the salty sea air at Moses Rock, walk past the surfing hotspots of Yallingup and Injidup, take in sweeping views from Foul Bay Lighthouse, and swim in the sheltered Cowaramup Bay in Gracetown. The bucket list small group tour includes seven nights accommodation at the Margaret River Motel and all-inclusive meals, together with all national park fees and a professional guide joining every step of the way.

ITINERARY

Show All Info

Depart from Perth CBD early this morning from The Wellington Street Tourist Coach Stand and travel down the coast. Enjoy the first of many fresh, picnic lunches for the week on the lawn at the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse. It’s a great chance to 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!

Please 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. 
 
Check into the Margaret River Motel on arrival. The motel is located in a lovely quiet nook, within walking distance to the Margaret River township. The rooms are spacious, clean, twin share/double motel-style rooms with ensuite. We stay in one location for the duration of our Cape to Cape track tour. This means that you can unpack your bags once and just relax.

For breakfast and evening meals we will come together in the Motels dining area. These are lovingly prepared by the guides and are delicious and healthy. Breakfast comprises cereals, fruit, yoghurt, toast, juice, tea and freshly brewed coffee. Each day your guide will carry tea, coffee and a home-made cake for your morning tea. Fruit is also available.

On some days lunch is self-made from fresh bread, salads and meats. On other days, where there is vehicle access to the track, the bus will bring us a tasty and nutritious picnic lunch. Enjoy pre-dinner nibbles with fellow guests each evening while your guides prepare a delicious two-course meal for dinner. Feel free to bring alcohol and additional snacks e.g. muesli bars, nuts, chocolate etc. There will be time for you to purchase additional alcohol and supplies during the week.

Please note: Pick up will be from the Wellington Street Tourist Coach Stand

Overnight: Margaret River Motel
Meals included: Lunch;Dinner

Today your walk begins in beautiful Yallingup, a small coastal hamlet nestled into the hillside and overlooking one of the region’s well-known surf beaches. The coastline here is dramatic. Jagged rocks and high cliff faces are met by a haze of sea spray from the swell below.

This will be a day of beach walking and superb coastal views. Think dramatic red granite boulders, white sand beaches and turquoise waters. It’s jaw-droppingly beautiful.

Stop for lunch at the surfing mecca of Injidup, and then visit Quinninup Falls, a cascade that looks at its most spectacular just after the rain. Finish with ocean views at Moses Rock before returning back to Margaret River for dinner and an evening at leisure.

Overnight: Margaret River Motel
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

Today continue walking south from Moses Rock, a popular surf break halfway between Yallingup and Gracetown. The golden sandy beach is punctuated with rocky outcrops and tidal pools, perfect for a beachwalk and an exploration of the coast. The views are magnificent, and so are the waves. This is a great day, with relatively easy walking – 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 Wilyabrup are two of many highlights.

If the weather’s nice, you might enjoy a refreshing swim in the sheltered Cowaramup Bay at Gracetown. Or just soak those feet as you reflect on another great day on the Cape to Cape.

Overnight: Margaret River Motel
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

Today begins in Gracetown, where you’ll continue your walk south. It is 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 – a good place for a swim if it’s warm.

Overnight: Margaret River Motel
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

Today start back at the Margaret River mouth and enjoy a day of varied walking. 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.

Overnight: Margaret River Motel
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

This morning continue through the Karri trees of Boranup Forest. The sight of these towering giants won’t be the only thing to amaze you. This forest is a feast for the senses, with the forest floor tumbling with wildflowers, orchids and funghi (in season), together with the sounds of native birds and the fresh smell of eucalyptus.

Afterwards we make our way down to the aqua-blue waters of Hamelin Bay, where this 6km beach stretch is very enjoyable. Enjoy the peace, the view and the moment as you walk into Hamelin Bay for a picnic lunch.

Following lunch, it’s a short but challenging hike up to the tiny Foul Bay Lighthouse (it’s much prettier than its name would suggest), with sweeping views back along the coast. Then before you know it, you’ll reach the end of another beautiful day.

Overnight: Margaret River Motel
Meals included: 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!

Overnight: Margaret River Motel
Meals included: Breakfast;Lunch;Dinner

Enjoy a sleep in and a leisurely breakfast then walk into Margaret River for a spot of shopping. Pick up some take-away lunch (own expense) before heading back to Perth, arriving by mid-afternoon (usually between 2.30 and 3pm) with a drop-off in the CBD at the Wellington Street Tourist Coach Stand.

An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop.

They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined.
