CAPE TO CAPE 4-DAY/3-NIGHT WALK ITINERARY
DAY 1: Perth - Cape Naturaliste - Yallingup (drive 290 km - walk 16km)
7:00 am pick up from Perth / Fremantle
We’ll pick you up in Perth or Fremantle and drive straight down to Yallingup where we will pick up our lunch, drop off the car & be driven to Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse. After signing our names on the Cape to Cape registration book we set off on the first stretch of the track. The coastal scenery is a spectacular backdrop for this fairly easy, 16 km walk just to get into the swing of it. Then drive to our accommodation for a warm shower and hearty meal.
DAY 2: Moses Rock to Ellenbrook (20 km)
6:30 am We will set off early to walk over clifftops whilst looking down over the densely vegetated dunes to take in magnificent views north and south. Morning tea/lunch at the spectacular Wilyabrup cliffs and enjoy the rugged coastal scenery on our way towards Gracetown. On arrival at this iconic southwest surfing town you can enjoy a swim, if you like. We then continue on towards Ellenbrook, the heritage homestead and home to early settlers Alfred & Ellen Bussell. It is also an important Noongar Wardandi site.
DAY 3: Boodjidup Creek - Redgate - Contos - Boranup Forest (22.5)
6:30 am We will make an early start on this longest section of the walk and make our way down to Boodjidup Creek along a charming section that leads to this secluded spot. Continue towards Redgate, and slowly walk along the beach onto Bob’s Hollow where we break for morning tea in the shade of the cave wall. Spectacular views over Conto’s beach and so much floral diversity. We then descend into Boranup Forest where we walk under the shade of the majestic Karri trees, as well as Marris, Peppermints and Jarrahs. This day’s hike provides a range of terrains, including low coastal heath, granite outcrops, forest and beach sands.
DAY 4*: Cosy Corner to Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse – Augusta (21.5)
The last day of the Cape to Cape will start in Cosy Corner and with our legs strong from the previous days’ walking we will have no trouble completing the last 7 km of beach walking before climbing up to the spectacular Augusta Cliffs and winding our way through onto the last stretch of the track past Skippy Rock and finishing the Cape to Cape at the grand Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse.
We will head into Margaret River for an hour of exploring & shopping (optional), and get something to eat.
Around 3:00pm, we will make our way back to Perth where we will drop you off at your various locations.
* If it is too warm or if for any other reason we decide we want to do a shorter walk, we will start at Hill View Road, Augusta and walk to the Leeuwin Lighthouse from there – 9 – 10 km.
