Cape to Cape - Northern section only Map

While this section is a pleasant day-hike, the entire Cape to Cape Walk Track is a much more strenuous multi-day hike and runs for 123 km along the Leeuwin-Naturaliste limestone ridge, between the lighthouses of Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin in the far south west of Western Australia. It features spectacular coastal and forest scenery, a fascinating geology of cliffs, caves, headlands and rock formations and an ever-changing display of vegetation and wildflowers. It can be very windy in the afternoons. Walking beach sections (in sometimes deep sand) can be difficult.



Walking along a well-kept trail that’s mostly flat. No obstacles are present.
