- Duration: 5 Days (approx.)
- Location: Margaret River, WA
- Product code: 5CJAG
Come adventure with us as we walk from lighthouse to lighthouse, along stunning coastal landscape from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin.
Hiking with us you will be joining a global social initiative, Move For Mental Health - an initiative created to raise awareness + encourage people to move and get out in nature more to boost mental wellbeing or reduce the symptoms of mental illness.
Each participant will be committing to raising $500 for The Gidget Foundation, a not-for-profit who supports expecting and new parents who are struggling emotionally with post natal depression/anxiety. PNDA affects 1 in 5 mothers and 1 in 10 fathers. Each $1000 raised by the team helps provide a year's worth of quality psychological care to a family through their #starttalking service.
Over the five day adventure you will be able to experience the power of nature and movement through specifically designed Ecotherapy and leadership activities, that will allow you to take those next steps forward personally and professionally.
You will walk into a camp that is all ready for you – including hot showers and delicious meals – all this while carrying only a daypack throughout the day. The beachside Prevelly Campsite will become your haven for the duration of your Cape to Cape experience!
Our professional, local guides have extensive knowledge and experience interpreting the natural beauty of the Track. And you can enjoy all this long distance walk has to offer without carrying a heavy pack.

Day 1: Walk Cape Naturaliste to Yallingup 13.75km
Enjoy complimentary morning pick up from Perth in Cape to Cape Explorer Tours’ transfer vehicle straight down to begin walking from Cape Naturaliste, the first section of the Cape to Cape Track. Todays walk begins with a gentle down hill stroll on the ‘access-for-all’ section of Track to the stunning vistas of Sugar Loaf Rock. The Track then runs along an extended section of carved limestone sea cliffs before reaching the coastal hamlet of Yallingup – ‘The Place of Caves’ which is perfect for an afternoon dip before checking in to your accommodation at Prevelly Caravan Park. Tonight you will enjoy a delicious Seafood bbq served with fresh wholesome salads.
Day 2: Yallingup to Moses Rock 17.5km
From Smiths Beach the topography changes quickly as giant granite marbles dominate near Canal Rocks. Enjoy a snorkel in a beautiful secluded pool this morning before continuing your walk high over the ridge and past Rotary Lookout. Drop back down on to the rocks at Wyadup and follow the ridge before dropping onto the beach at Injidup. Travel up high over the ridge, through the coastal tee tree and back onto the wild southwest facing coast. Weave through stunning areas of limestone cliff and granite before ending at the stunted vegetation and granite fields at Moses Rock. Finish the day with a boutique wine tasting experience at an award winning Margaret River winery while you indulge in a gourmet cheese and antipasto platter. Enjoy a relaxed dinner back at camp
Day 3: Ellensbrook to Prevelly 13km
From Ellensbrook, the Track quickly leaves the coast and meanders through sand dunes and past Ellensbrook homestead and Meekadarbee Falls. Visit the isolated coves of Gnoocardup and torquoise bay of Kilcarnup. Marvel at the centuries-old osprey nest in Horseshoe Bay and then take in some of the world's finest surfing coastline at Prevelly. It is here we rest our feet & enjoy a tranquil canoe experience up the famous Margaret River where you can see the remains of the Historic Wallcliffe House. Return to camp for a well deserved hot shower before enjoying another delicious dinner specially prepared for you.
Day 4: Redgate to Giants Cave
