The Cape to Cape Walk is in the south-west corner of Western Australia. The trail is 135km in length traversing the coast between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park.


Its start and finish are the lighthouses at the tips of Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin. The Track extends over 135 km of coastal scenery, sheltered forests and pristine beaches, and is in close proximity to the caves, vineyards and other features and attractions of the Margaret River Region.

Get in[edit]

By car[edit]

The northern trailhead is 15km west-northwest of Dunsborough and ends 6km shy of Augusta. Both places can be reached from Perth on the Bussell Hwy.

By Bus[edit]

Transwa buses pass through Dunsborough and Augusta. You will need to find a way to get to the trailhead.

Get around[edit]

Walking is the only way on trail as it follows a network of existing bush trails, disused roads, newly cut paths and beach sections. It takes most people 5-7 days to walk the full length.

Sleep[edit][add listing]

The trail passes though Yallingup, Smiths Beach, Gracetown, Prevelly, and Hamelin Bay along the way. All have campgrounds/caravan parks and several offer other accommodations.

Established campsites, sited 1 days walk apart (20-25km), offer a toilet, watertank, fire ring and a place to pitch your tent.

Eat[edit][add listing]

Towns will have opportunities to eat or restock your supplies. Eating on the trail is BYO and DIY.
