7 Day Hike – Cape To Cape

The Cape To Cape is one of WA’s great hiking trails. It winds its way along the 135km spine of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park and stunning coastline between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin.

It overflows with spectacular clifftop hiking, unpredictable and exhilarating south coast weather, grilling dunes, tall lush forests, both challenging and beautiful beach hiking.

This hike has been specially designed for a small group (Max 4) of young people 18 yrs plus who are completing their Duke Of Edinburgh Award, though all young people are welcome.

Boots or bare feet for beach hiking? – “I love the idea of being barefooted on the beautiful beach sand, but personally keeping your boots on offers you more ankle support, keeps you from sinking into the soft sand and no sunburnt feet.” – Didier

The hike is a total of 9 days including travelling to and from the south-west.

Due to its length and some challenging sections, Didier requires a Zoom chat with the Participant prior to booking. Text or email Didier to organise to a no-pressure chat today.
