The iconic Cape to Cape track transverses along 123km of beaches and ridges of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park following the coast from Cape Naturaliste, Dunsborough to Cape Leeuwin, Augusta.
This coastline hiking trail is the perfect way to view some of our best beaches in one location.The walk takes in amazing views of sea and landscapes including wildflowers in spring and the stunning Indian Ocean.
The trail varies from bitumen pathways, well-graded tracks, and 4WD tracks, to sandy beaches. and loose dirt single file sections.
If you want to experience some of the highlights of the Cape To Cape track in just one, introductory hike, then the very start of the track, from the lighthouse to Sugar Loaf rock is the perfect option. It showcases wildflowers and botanic diversity, and is one of the most picturesque and iconic granite formations on the entire track.
At the other end of the track from Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse, is Cape Leeuwin lighthouse and our second pick for the best pats of the Track.
This section is very remote, and will take the full day to hike, with just over 21km to tackle. This section includes 5km on soft sand hiking, so it is certainly not for the faint of heart.
This is a full-day walk along tracks and beaches, taking in the beautiful landscape of Cape Mentelle. You will find more beautiful scenery, and of course a beautiful spot to stop and enjoy the ocean for a cool down. This is another tough day of hiking so a good fitness level is recommended.
The scenic coastal cliffs at Bob’s Hollow and Contos is one of the most spectacular spots on this track. Enter the majestic Karri forest, home to the world’s third tallest hardwood. The solid track under foot and afternoon shade of the karri forest make it all seem easy.
