Date Hiked - September 2020

Along with the Bibbulmun Track, the Cape to Cape is one of best multi-day hikes you can do in Western Australia. Running from the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse on the northern end of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge all the way down to the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse on the southern tip. In-between you'll experience some beautifully rugged coastline packed with wildflowers, orchids, native fauna, arduous beach sections, stunning forest and a number of creek crossings. With plenty of towns and small holiday villages along the way, you're never far away from experiencing some of the great produce, wines and hospitality that Australia's South West is famous for. This is a truly world-class part of Western Australia and the Cape to Cape should be on every avid hiker's bucket list of trails to experience.
