The Cape to Cape 4 day walk is a fully guided small group walk which combines the best sections of the Cape to Cape track with great food and wine experiences and ultra-luxe accommodation at exclusive beachfront property, Injidup Spa Retreat. Packed with highlights, this premier walk features lunch with matched wines at an award winning winery, private chef dinner showcasing local produce with a local wine-maker on hand to present their wines, sunset cliff-top drinks and a very special private didgeridoo performance with one of the region’s traditional owners. This truly is a new way to walk.
The Cape to Cape track is located in Australia's South-West, in the Margaret River wine region of Western Australia. The track covers 135km of coast line from Cape Naturaliste (near Yallingup) in the North, to Cape Leeuwin (near Augusta) in the South. Located within the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, the track winds along pristine beaches and dramatic coastal cliffs, as well as through coastal bush that comes alive with wildflowers in the Spring. The magnificent karri trees of Boranup forest provide a great contrast, and Cape Leeuwin, which is also the meeting point of two oceans – the Indian and Southern – provides a unique terminus to the track.
The terrain is a combination of white sand, limestone cliffs, granite rock, old 4WD tracks, sealed paths and bushy track. The sections of the Cape to Cape track used for the tour are rated as moderate, with a couple of easier sections around Sugarloaf Rock and Boranup forest providing a breather.
For the nature lover, there is no shortage of wildlife and plant variety on the Cape to Cape track. The area is a world biodiversity hotspot, with approximately 80% of the plant life found nowhere else in the world. There are magnificent wildflowers along the track in Spring and an abundance of birdlife year round. Dolphins are regularly seen playing in the waves, and whales cruise the ocean alongside the track from June to December. Kangaroos and emus are not uncommon, and the impressive Southern Heath Monitor lizard is occasionally seen (or heard) rummaging in the bushes.
