The Cape to Cape Walk Track is located in the far south-west corner of Western Australia, just 250 km south of Perth. It meanders along the whole length of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge, which forms the backbone of the spectacular Leeuwin Naturaliste National Park. Its start and finish are the lighthouses at the rugged tips of Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin.

The Cape to Cape Track and Meelup Trail offers:

  • 123 km of stunning coastal scenery, quiet sheltered forests and pristine beaches;
  • a multitude of opportunities for short, day walks of any length;
  • a challenging adventure of five to seven days to complete the whole walk;
