Your trip starts from Perth and you'll stay at COMO The Treasury, occupying the 19th-century State Buildings. Then enjoy a private transfer to Margaret River where you will embark on walking the Cape to Cape Track for 5 days.
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.
This luxury walking tour allows plenty of time for relaxation at your 5 star boutique accommodation, a beachfront resort at Smiths Beach, a country estate, and a forest retreat. Exclusive dinners at Lamont's, Cape Lodge Lakeside Restaurant, gourmet platter, an in-villa private chef dinner and 7 course degustation lunch with matching wine at Leeuwin Estate.
Your tour includes 6 nights’ twin share 5 star accommodation, all meals, 5-day guided walks, all trail transfers, ‘Ultimate Leeuwin Degustation Experience’, and private return transfers to/from Perth.
