8 Day Cape to Cape and Bibbulmun walk

Cape to Cape and Bibbulmun walk

A guided 8 day Pack-Free walk

This fantastic 8 day Pack Free walk showcases the two best walking trails of the South West region of Western Australia… the Cape to Cape and the Bibbulmun tracks. With a combined distance of over 1100kms, to do both walks would normally take around 9 weeks, instead, we have hand-picked the best sections of both tracks to provide you with an inspiring 8-day journey.

Our first 4 days are spent walking the best of the Cape to Cape walk in the Margaret River region, with its timeless landscapes of high limestone cliffs and pretty heathlands. Indulge in superb Margaret River wines as well as local produce and for a truly unforgettable journey, you’ll also experience a scenic helicopter flight after you’ve enjoyed a superb lunch.

From here we head to the Karri Valley near Pemberton to start our Bibbulmun walking experience. Experience the tranquillity and beauty of the Karri and Tingle Forest as well as some of Australia’s most magnificent coastline. With such a diversity of landscapes and experiences, the entire South West region is sure to enchant all your senses.
