The Cape to Cape Walk Track runs for 135 kilometres along the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge, between the lighthouse of Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin in the far south west of Western Australia. The moderate Top Trail features spectacular coastal and forest scenery, a fascinating geology of cliffs, caves, headlands and rock formations and an ever-changing display of vegetation and wildflowers.
Designed to bring people in close contact with the environment, the track mainly follows the coast, alternating spectacular sweeping cliff-top views with stretches of pristine beach. There are several inland loops, which take in some lovely sheltered woodland sections as well as the magnificent Boranup karri forest.
The trail varies from old four-wheel-drive vehicle tracks, constructed pathways, firm well-graded tracks, to rough stony paths and sandy beaches. There are easy sections, which make excellent half-day and day walks, while some of the wider parts are rugged and hard going. To tackle the whole walk is a great challenge (usually five to seven days), but multiple access points along the coast allow the track to be completely easily in smaller segments. Several tour operators also offer fully-guided walks and with camping along the track and many types of accommodation close by.
