Cape to Cape Track

Walk from lighthouse to lighthouse along Australia's ruggedly beautiful Margaret River coast

Save to my Account

Surfers who ride the waves off the famous Margaret River wine region would probably prefer that their bit of paradise had remained a secret. But it’s way too late. The Cape to Cape Track along the magnificent stretch of coast between the lighthouses guarding capes Leeuwin and Naturaliste has become a bushwalking Western Australia classic.

You can get a taste of the rugged, honeycombed cliffs, remote surf beaches, diverse vegetation and show-off spring wildflowers on day walks. Try Cape Leeuwin to Cosy Corner. Or you can go the full monty and tread the whole 135km along the backbone of Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park. There are camping areas along the track and hard-top accommodations a short walk or car ride off it. The invaluable Cape to Cape Track Guidebook details the walk between car access points.

End-to-enders also have the option of a self-guided or guided inn-to-inn walking “holiday”. It’s still not an easy hike, though, even carrying a day pack. There are, though, so many OMG coastal views along the Track it’s easy to become blase about the country through which you’re walking. Prepare to be amazed!
