Walking the Cape to Cape Track
One of Western Australia’s brilliant longdistance walks, the Cape to Cape Walk covers 135 kilometres between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin, going through coastal heath, wildflowers, jarrah–marri forest and past rugged granite headlands and plunging cliffs. The trail mostly follows the coast, but there are some inland loops. Walkers often spot western grey kangaroos in the bush, and dolphins offshore, and, in the second half of the year, migrating whales are sometime seen. It takes about seven days to do the entire track, but there are plenty of options for shorter walks. You can camp all the way along, or stay in a variety of accommodation just off the track. The best source for all information on the walk is the Friends of the Cape to Cape Track website. It lists several operators that offer guided walks, including fully supported walks.
