In the south-west corner of Western Australia lies the famous Margaret River wine region and the spectacular Cape to Cape walk. The Cape to Cape track covers a massive 135 kilometres, stretching from the lighthouses of Cape Naturaliste in the north to Cape Leeuwin in the south. On our 4-day Pack Free walk, we showcase the best walking sections of this coastline, wandering along high limestone cliffs for magnificent views as well as meandering through pretty coastal heathland and idyllic forests.
This 4-day walk has been carefully designed so you can experience a range of landscapes in the National Park, indulge in sensational Margaret River wines at two wineries and see the stunning landscape from the air by helicopter. This is truly a memorable bucket list walk.
