8-Day Cape to Cape Track Guided Walking Tour from Perth

8-Day Cape to Cape Track Guided Walking Tour from Perth

If you want to walk the iconic Cape to Cape Track along the famous Margaret River coastline in comfort without camping, then this tour is for you. Take in cliff-top vistas, white sand beaches and clean ocean air on this 135-km guided walk. Ideally suited to over 50's, you will complete spectacular walks each day and return to comfortable lodge style accommodation each evening. Carrying only a small day pack and enjoying delicious and healthy meals (and yes, all dietary needs are catered for) along the way, walking this track is both achievable and enjoyable. The small group size means there are plenty of opportunities to develop new friendships and share experiences. This walk is certainly achievable to those with a moderate level of fitness but if you need a rest day or would like a shorter day of walking then there are options as well. Tours are always guaranteed to depart.

The final part of the day is through the cool peaceful forest on firm, easy tracks. It’s a wonderful end to a wonderful day on the Cape to Cape track. Despite the distance, today is not usually considered the most difficult.

After that we head inland, occasionally sighting the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse, signalling the end of your walk.
