Trip Code: TEG

On arrival please make your own way to Quality Hotel Ambassador Perth (196 Adelaide Terrace, Perth CBD). This evening you will have time to explore Perth before heading back to the hotel and enjoying a relaxing evening before starting your trek tomorrow. Overnight: Quality Hotel Ambassador Perth

Meals:  Nil

Enjoy breakfast at your hotel before your morning pick up from Quality Hotel Ambassador Perth in the Cape to Cape Explorer Tours’ transfer vehicle at 8am. We will stop one hour into the journey, giving you the opportunity to grab something to eat & drink and/or use the bathroom. You will then head out to Cape Naturaliste to meet your guide for the day begin your first day of hiking the track. Please note that you will need to have your water bottles filled and your pack ready for the hike. After the hike you may have the opportunity for a quick swim at Yallingup Lagoon, then you will head straight to dinner at the historic Caves House, please bring a swimsuit and change of clothes in your day pack if required.

Meals:  B,L,D

Pick up from your accommodation: between 7:30am or 8am From Yallingup, pass over the granite headland at Torpedo Rock and on to the fabled Smith’s Beach. After Smith’s Beach the topography changes quickly as giant granite marbles dominate near Canal Rocks. Travel high over the ridge and past Rotary Lookout, before dropping back down on to the beach at Injidup. Ascend over the ridge again, meandering through coastal tee tree and back onto the wild southwest facing coast. Weave through stunning areas of limestone cliff and granite before walking through the stunted vegetation and granite fields of Moses Rock. There are great swimming opportunities today, be sure to pack your swimsuit! Eat in tonight with a delicious, fresh meal from Cape to Cape Moveable Feast. Please give us as much warning as possible if you are considering a half day. HALF DAY OPTION: Begin hiking with the group for the first 9km, and get picked up from Injidup at 1pm.

Meals:  B,L,D

Pick up from your accommodation: 7:30am or 8am The track rises high over several large limestone headlands before flattening out on Wilyabrup Beach. A wonderfully constructed staircase then guides walkers up and onto the stunning sea cliffs that form the famous climbing buttresses of Wilyabrup Cliffs. After passing the cliffs, the track drops back down onto the beach, passing the famous, though severe, surfing breaks of Gallows and Guillotines. The coast then turns decidedly rocky as it ducks and weaves over picturesque granite boulders and finally into the pretty hamlet of Gracetown. Relax here and enjoy an afternoon swim to sooth the muscles and mind. After the day’s walk we drop in for a personalised wine tour and cheese platter at a boutique winery in the Margaret River Region. Eat in tonight with a delicious, fresh meal from our catering team Cape to Cape Moveable Feast.

Meals:  B,L,D

Pick up from your accommodation: 7:30am or 8am Beginning at the picturesque hamlet of Gracetown, follow the low coastline to the historic settlement of Ellensbrook. From Ellensbrook, the track quickly leaves the coast and meanders through sand dunes and past Ellensbrook homestead and Meekadarabee Falls. Visit the isolated coves of Gnoocardup and the turquoise 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. Tonight is a free night to unwind by heading out to a local restaurant at your own expense, either on your own or with the rest of the group should you choose. We recommend The Common bistro, conveniently located a short stroll away. Please give us as much warning as possible if you are considering a half day. HALF DAY OPTION: Get on the bus with the group in the morning, and get dropped off to Ellensbrook. The rest of the group will walk to meet you from Gracetown, while you relax or explore the old homestead. Then join the group for the 12.5km into your accommodation.

Meals:  B,L

Pick up from your accommodation: 7:30am or 8am From the limestone ridge at Prevelly you will head down into the sheltered creek line of Boodjidup Brook. Continue on and experience the white sands of Boodjidup before reaching historic Redgate Beach. Next is very likely one of the best sections of the Cape to Cape Track: the scenic coastal cliffs at Bob’s Hollow and Contos. Enter the majestic Karri forest, home to the world’s third tallest hardwood. A longer day, but the solid track under foot and afternoon shade of the karri forest makes it all seem easy. We will stop for a brief cave experience this afternoon – make sure you have a warm jumper or jacket with you. Eat in tonight with a delicious, fresh meal from Cape to Cape Moveable Feast. If you plan on indulging in a massage during your week with us, tonight is a good opportunity. Please give us as much warning as possible if you are considering a half day. HALF DAY OPTION: Relax this morning, and get picked up at 10.30am to be dropped to Redgate. Walk 13km to Boranup Forest.

Meals:  B,L,D

Pick up from your accommodation: 7:30am or 8am Start amongst the tall karris of Boranup Forest, home to an array of wildlife and wildflowers in season. Head south, back into the coastal heath, and down onto the stunningly beautiful Boranup Beach. 7kms of sand walking later, find the protected Hamelin Bay, home to some of the Cape's friendliest stingrays who love a feed of freshly caught fish! Continue on past the many islands and headlands through the coastal heath and past Foul Bay lighthouse until you arrive at the stunning Cosy Corner. This afternoon we stop to have a look at the Margaret River and eat dinner nearby at local microbrewery, The Brewhouse. Remember to pack a jacket or jumper. Please give us as much warning as possible if you are considering a half day. HALF DAY OPTION: Walk 16km this morning with the group, and finish at Hamelin Bay after Boranup beach. Wait here for the afternoon bus to collect you on the way to collect the rest of the group from Cosy Corner.

Meals:  B,L,D

Pick up from your accommodation: 7:30am or 8am The last leg of the Cape to Cape Track faces more into the south than the rest of the coast. True wilderness with limited road access the sights are reserved for the local hooded plovers and you. Granite headlands are broken up by long sections of shoe-sucking sand. Formidable, but every step takes you closer to the Cape Leeuwin lighthouse and the moment of celebration. After a hot shower back at your accommodation, meet at Surfpoint Resort where we share a fantastic slideshow of the last seven days. Then tuck into a celebration fish barbeque dinner with seasonal salads provided for you by our catering team.

Meals:  B,L,D

Pick up from your accommodation: 8:30am If you are staying at Margaret’s Beach Resort, please have your catering box packed for collection by your driver at 8am.

Depart for the city via the Margaret River Farmer’s Market in the Cape to Cape to Cape Explorer Tours Bus. You will depart the farmers market at 9.30am so please order coffees first before exploring the rest of the markets.
