Tour Overview

Join The Hike Collective in collaboration with Cape To Cape Explorer Tours in this magnificent once in a lifetime opportunity to walk the famous Cape to Cape Track in Australia’s South West.  The iconic track with its unique flora and fauna, awesome coastal and inland views and high level of usage have contributed to it gaining recognition  in many parts of the world.​  Enjoy this long distance walk in good company and with peace of mind, knowing that safety is our priority.

The Cape to Cape Track End-to-End Experience centres on 7 days of walking over widely-varied terrain, which creates an array of sites and natural processes to wonder at. The Experience is a moderate walk covering 13-22km each day; a sound level of fitness is recommended prior to undertaking the journey. Being as fit as you can will ensure you get the most out of your trip. This being said, you can always take a rest day, or a half day options on most days.

This experience is based in shared accommodation in the wonderful beachside hamlet of Gnarabup. Guests will stay in a shared bedroom (single supplement for own room / bathroom available), shared living spaces and shared bathroom facilities at the wonderfully appointed Surfpoint Resort.

Your hike includes stunning and wild coastal landscapes, physical challenges, new friendships and hearty evening meals, with catering from Margaret River company Cape to Cape Movable Feast.

Our professional, local guides have extensive knowledge and experience interpreting the natural beauty of the Track. And you can enjoy all this long distance trail has to offer without carrying a heavy pack.

Walking up an appetite…

Margaret River is renowned for fresh, healthy produce – and wine! Savour delicious and nourishing meals prepared for you each day; indulge in boutique wine, olive and cheese tastings. Refresh your body with a dip in the ocean and sleep well in your comfortable lodgings amidst the gorgeous natural surroundings of Gnarabup Beach.

Minimal impact, maximum enjoyment & satisfaction…

The Hike Collective and Cape to Cape Explorer Tours are environmentally responsible and conscientious operators: we live here and we know, love and support this coastline. While the focus is on walking the Track, our little surprises and extras will make this a trip to remember!

Expand All
DAY ONE | CAPE NATURALISTE TO YALLINGUP

Cape Naturaliste to Yallingup 13km

Drive yourself down from Perth this morning and meet at Yallingup carpark at 11am. Get a lift with Cape to Cape Explorer Tours to the top of the Cape and begin walking from Cape Naturaliste, the first section of the Cape to Cape Track begins with a gentle down hill stroll on the ‘access-for-all’ section of track to the stunning vistas of Sugar Loaf Rock. The Track then runs along an extended section of carved limestone sea cliffs before reaching the coastal hamlet of Yallingup – ‘The Place of Love’.

DAY TWO | YALLINGUP TO MOSES ROCK

Day 2: Yallingup to Moses Rock 17km

From Yallingup pass over the granite headland at Torpedo Rock and on to the fabled Smiths 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. Travel up high over the ridge, through the coastal tee tree and back onto the wild south-west facing coast. Weave through stunning areas of limestone cliff and granite before walking through the stunted vegetation and granite fields of Moses Rock.

DAY THREE | MOSES ROCK TO GRACETOWN

Moses Rock to Gracetown 13km

The Track rises high over several large limestone headlands before flattening out on Willyabrup 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!

DAY FOUR | GRACETOWN TO GNARABUP

Gracetown to Gnarabup 20km

Beginning at the picturesque hamlet of Gracetown, follow the low coastline to thehistoric settlement of Ellensbrook. From Ellensbrook, the Track quickly leaves thecoast and meanders through sand dunes and past Ellensbrook homestead and Meekadarbee Falls. Visit the isolated coves of Gnoocardup and torquoise 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.

DAY FIVE | GNARABUP TO BORANUP FOREST

Gnarabup to Boranup Forest 21.5km

From the limestone ridge at Prevelly head down into the sheltered creekline 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
(although we may be biased as CCET have adopted and maintain this leg!) 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 make it all seem easy!

DAY SIX | BORANUP FOREST TO COSY CORNER

Boranup Forest to Cosy Corner 20.5km

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.

DAY SEVEN | COSY CONER TO CAPE LEEUWIN

Cosy Corner to Cape Leeuwin 19km

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.
