ITINERARY

Day One Starts in Perth at 8.30am. Travel south for lunch in the Margaret River wine area. Visit historic Cape Leeuwin lightstation and then walk a short section of the Cape to Cape Track in the historic waterwheel area.

Accommodation: Augusta
Day Two Continue on the Cape to Cape track. Highlights today include Cape Hamelin, where there is a beautiful bay surrounded by granite boulders, sandy Deepdene Beach and a coastal section with unusual solution holes in the limestone rocks.

Accommodation: Augusta
Day Three Today’s walking is along a fairly remote stretch of coastline commencing with the long Boranup Beach. The remainder is easy walking through coastal heathlands, eucalyptus and peppermint woodlands. There is also a section with masses of grass trees and the first of the tall karri forests.

Accommodation: Redgate Beach
Day Four One of the most spectacular sections of coastline today, including a remarkable grotto and natural spring at Bob’s Hollow. Enjoy a special treat at lunchtime today with an indigenous foods banquet on the beach.

Accommodation: Redgate Beach
Day Five Once again, a mix of walking along the coast and through inland forest. An interesting section today is the walk beside Boodjidup Brook, a meandering stream connecting Devil Pool with the ocean. Today’s walk also crosses the mouth of the mighty Margaret River.

Accommodation: Redgate Beach
Day Six The walk continues past Ellensbrook Homestead, a National Trust property where the original owners also built an operational waterwheel. Limestone is plentiful in the area, and today you’ll see Meekadarabee Falls disappearing into a cave. There is also a coffee opportunity at Gracetown, a small settlement overlooking Cowaramup Bay.

Accommodation: Smiths Beach
Day Seven Today has the longest distance to cover, but it’s very scenic all the way. Highlights today include Wilyabrup cliffs which are popular with rock climbers, huge granite outcrops and two superb capes at Cape Clairault and Canal Rocks. The beach names along here indicate it’s popularity with surfers – The Window, Wildcat and Honeycombs.

Accommodation: Smiths Beach
Day Eight This is the final section of track. Walk from Canal Rocks Rd to Cape Naturaliste, then to Bunker Bay for the night. You’ll pass Sugarloaf Rock, summer home to red-tailed tropic birds. Much of the coast here is limestone cliff, with short beaches and low rocky areas. Along the way there are striking views of Sugarloaf Rock.

Accommodation: Smiths Beach
Day Nine Travel back to Perth to arrive around 1pm.
