Cape to Cape track Western Australia from $990 including airfares
Join me on the spectacular Cape to Cape track situated in the far south western corner of Western Australia. It runs for 135 km along the spine of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge, through the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, between the lighthouses of Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin. The Cape to Cape track mostly follows the coast, alternating spectacular sweeping cliff-top views with stretches of pristine beach. There are several inland loops however, whichtake in some lovely sheltered woodland sections as well as the magnificent Boranup karri forest. Fascinating geological features, such as cliffs, caves, headlands and rock formations can to be seen along the way, and the vegetation and wildflowers present an ever-changing display.
This is a hiking/camping trip with the need to carry all equipment, food can be replenished at towns along the way although, choice will be limited, water will be available various locations and we can share tents to reduce the load.
