Trek Summary

The Cape to Cape Walk Track is a long-distance walk trail located in the far south-west corner of Western Australia, 250 kilometres south of Perth. It meanders along the whole length of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge, which forms the backbone of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park.

The Cape to Cape walk runs for 123kms along the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge, between the lighthouses of Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leewin in the far south west of Western Australia. It features spectacular coastal and forest scenery, a fascinating geology of cliffs, caves, headlands and rock formations and an ever-changing display of vegetation and wildflowers. You will only need to carry a day pack as we “Glamp” it each night!

Itinerary

Day 1ARRIVAL INTO PERTH

Arrive and check into hotel. Leisure time until trek briefing at 5pm.

Day 2Perth Pick up - Transfer to Cape Naturaliste, trek to Yallingup – 13km

Commence with gentle down hill stroll to stunning vistas at Sugar Loaf Rock, along carved limestone sea cliffs enroute to Yallingup – ‘The Place of Love’. Dinner and transfer to spacious bell tent accommodation hub, home for the next 7 nights. Enjoy glamping with hot shower facilities, swimming pool and communal lounge room (with a fire place and free coffee machine…. bliss!)

Day 3Yallingup to Moses Rock – 16.75kms

A day of ascents, descents and topography changes, trekking over granite headland at Torpedo Rock and on to the fabled Smiths Beach, continuing to a high ridge before again descending to the beach at Injidup. Continuing undulations through limestone cliff and granite into Moses Rock.

Day 4Moses Rock to Gracetown – 13kms

Trek high over large limestone headlands before flattening out on Willyabrup Beach. Climb wonderfully constructed staircase onto stunning Wilyabrup Cliffs. Descend to beach, passing the challenging surfing breaks of Gallows and Guillotines. Continue through picturesque granite boulder fields to the pretty hamlet of Gracetown.

Day 5Gracetown to Gnarabup – 20kms

Start today along low coastline to historic settlement of Ellensbrook, where track leaves the coast and meanders through sand dunes. Continue past Ellensbrook Homestead and Meekadarbee Falls to the isolated coves of Gnoocardup and torquoise bay of Kilcarnup. Finish up trekking through Horseshoe Bay and along some of the world’s finest surfing coastline at Prevelly.

Day 6Gnarabup to Boranup Forest – 21.5 kms

Early descent into sheltered creekline of Boodjidup Brook, before continuing to white sands of Boodjidup and historic Redgate Beach. Stunning views from coastal cliffs at Bob’s Hollow and Contos. Majestic Karri forest, home to the world’s third tallest hardwood. A longer day, but solid track under foot and afternoon shade of the karri forest make it seem easy!

Day 7Boranup Forest to Cosy Corner – 20.5kms

Another day of karris in the Boranup Forest, home to array of wildlife and wildflowers in season. Head south, down onto stunningly beautiful Boranup Beach, walk on sand for 7kms to the protected Hamelin Bay, home to many stingrays. Continue past many islands, headlands and Foul Bay lighthouse to stunning Cosy Corner.

Day 8Cosy Corner to Cape Leeuwin – 19kms

True wilderness with limited road access for final day, joined only by local hooded plovers. Granite headlands are broken up by long sections of shoe-sucking sand. Formidable, but every step is closer to the Cape Leeuwin lighthouse and the moment of celebration.

Day 9Depart for Perth

A final breakfast in these pristine surroundings, before departing via the Margaret River Farmer’s Market. Arrive in Perth at 12.30pm, and transfer to the airport or at a central CBD location
