DAY 1
AUGUSTA

The Cape to Cape walk starts in Augusta; your accommodation will be ready any time after 2 pm. There’s no walking scheduled today. However, there is an excellent riverside walk that will occupy a couple of hours, otherwise, you could catch a taxi to Cape Leeuwin and do the lighthouse tour.

Accommodation: Augusta, in an excellent apartment with ensuite rooms
Walking: Easy / 3–5km / 1 hr

 

DAY 2
CAPE LEEUWIN TO COSY CORNER

The Cape to Cape walk starts at Cape Leeuwin, where you should have your photo taken at the lighthouse! It then continues to the petrified water wheel and heads northwards. Highlights today include Cape Hamelin, where granite boulders and a coastal section with unusual solution holes in the limestone rocks surround a beautiful bay.

Accommodation: Augusta, in an excellent apartment with ensuite rooms
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Walking: Moderate / 21.5km / 6–7 hrs

 

DAY 3
COSY CORNER TO BORANUP FOREST

Today’s walking is along a fairly remote stretch of coastline commencing with the long Boranup Beach. The remainder is easy walking through coastal heathlands, eucalyptus and peppermint woodlands. There is also a section with masses of grass trees and the first of the tall karri forests.

Accommodation: Augusta, in an excellent apartment with ensuite rooms
Meals: Cooked breakfast and walkers lunch
Walking: Moderate to Challenging / 20.5km / 6–7 hrs

 

DAY 4
BORANUP FOREST TO GNARABUP

Today’s walk traverses one of the most spectacular sections of the coastline and includes a beautiful walk beside Boodjidup Brook, a meandering stream connecting Devil Pool with the ocean. Much of the walk makes its way through Karri forest once again until you arrive at the Indian Ocean. From here, the track follows the contours of the coastline all the way to your accommodation.

Accommodation:  Gnarabup in ensuite rooms
Meals: Cooked breakfast, walkers lunch and dinner
Walking: Moderate to Challenging / 24km / 6.5–7.5 hrs

 

DAY 5
GNARABUP TO ELLENSBROOK HOMESTEAD

This is the lightest day from a walking perspective but nonetheless still a real day of highlights. There is a nice mix of walking along the coast and through inland forest. Today’s walk also crosses the mouth of Margaret River. This can be crossed on a sandbar, but if it is flowing heavily, we will have arranged other options.

Accommodation: Margaret River in ensuite rooms
Meals: Cooked breakfast, walkers lunch and dinner
Walking: Easy to Moderate / 14.7km / 4– 5 hrs

 

DAY 6
ELLENSBROOK TO WILYABRUP

Limestone is plentiful in the area, and today, you’ll see Meekadarabee Falls disappearing into a cave. There is also a coffee opportunity at Gracetown, a small settlement overlooking Cowaramup Bay.

This is where we fit in the optional rest day: you may wish to incorporate an additional day to rest tomorrow before tackling the longest day on the track. This is the wine and food capital of Western Australia, so there are a plethora of wineries to visit, to eat lunch at and relax. The Chocolate factory is also a great place to spend those well-earned calories you’ve already walked off.

Accommodation: Margaret River in ensuite rooms
Meals: Cooked breakfast, walkers lunch and dinner
Walking: Moderate / 17.5kms / 4.5–5.5 hrs

 

DAY 7
Rest Day in Margaret River

Why not stay an extra day and enjoy the ambience of the world-famous Margaret River Wine Region?  Margaret River is one of the world’s youngest wine regions in the world but has already received huge accolades in the past decade or so, particularly for its cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay.

The region is surrounded by ocean on three sides, which you have discovered already by walking some of the Cape to Cape. The pristine and geographically isolated environment ensures that every wine is special and no two are the same. The Margaret River region has 90 plus cellar doors (more than 65 of which are rated 5-star wineries by Halliday). Many of the wineries have casual cafés and even world-class restaurants.

Or put your feet up in your lodgings and wander around town if you get itchy feet.

Accommodation: Margaret River in ensuite rooms
Meals: Cooked breakfast

 

DAY 8
WILYABRUP  TO  YALLINGUP

Today has the longest distance to cover, but it’s scenic the entire way. Highlights include Wilyabrup Sea Cliffs, huge granite outcrops and two superb capes at Cape Clairault and Canal Rocks. The beach names here indicate popularity with surfers – The Window, Wildcat and Honeycombs.

Accommodation: Caves or Seashells Yallingup in ensuite rooms
Meals: Cooked breakfast, walkers lunch and dinner

Along the way, there are striking views of Sugarloaf Rock. You can celebrate successfully walking the longest coastal track in Australia, the Cape to Cape Track, with a luxury stay at the Pullman Bunker Bay.

Accommodation: Pullman Bunker Bay in ensuite rooms

FITNESS GUIDE

It’s well worth investing some time and effort preparing for your walking holiday. The graph shows the average daily distance, elevation and terrain difficulty for your hike. The dotted line indicates the average across all our walks, which will give you a feel for how challenging your walk is compared to all – and the recommended type, and amount, of preparation needed.  Of course, you can adapt this according to your existing fitness levels and lifestyle.

The graph and the information below can be used in conjunction with the fitness guide to help you prepare for your walking adventure. Across all walks, average daily distance is 16.8km, average daily elevation is 448m, average terrain difficulty is 5/10.

ngraph

DISTANCE - ~AVERAGE

Distance training should be a consideration in your overall training program, so take every opportunity you can to walk. As you progress, incorporate longer walks into your training plan.

Schedule one or two long walks each week, gradually increasing the distance until you can comfortably cover 16km in a single day. Also include walks on consecutive days to help your body adapt to the demands of walking for multiple days in a row.

Ensure you can comfortably walk the average distance per day displayed in the graph, at least one month before you undertake your hike.

ELEVATION - BELOW AVERAGE

Elevation is not a major consideration in your overall training program. However, you should still incorporate some form of resistance training to increase your endurance.

TERRAIN

SAND TERRAIN

To prepare for walking on sand you will need specialised training owing to the soft and yielding nature of this type of terrain. It has a distinct impact on the body, especially the calf muscles as you get older. Sand moves when we walk and can lead to the overextension of the calf muscles resulting in discomfort and aches over prolonged periods.

To avoid this you should target exercises for lower body strength such as lunges, squats, and calf raises. Incorporate barefoot walks on soft surfaces such as grass to improve balance and foot muscle strength. Practice walking on the beach or sand dunes if you can to acclimatise to the unique demands of a sandy terrain.

UNEVEN TERRAIN

Preparation for hiking on uneven terrain demands a blend of physical and mental readiness.

Begin with balance-enhancing exercises, such as one-legged stands and stability ball workouts, laying a groundwork for stability and coordination. Strengthening the lower body is especially important, achieved through the incorporation of squats, lunges, and step-ups. Gradually increase the complexity of the terrain on which you walk, moving from gravel paths to rocky trails. Cultivate mindfulness during your practice, directing focused attention to both your immediate surroundings and precise foot placement.

The importance of suitable footwear cannot be overstated; prioritise options that offer robust support and reliable grip to navigate varying terrains with confidence. Build endurance through consistent hikes, progressively increasing distance and difficulty.

GENERAL INFO

We hike the Cape to Cape from south to north to avoid the prevailing weather conditions. It starts in Augusta, about 350km south of Perth. You can get to the Cape to Cape track by public or private transport.

For what to bring, please refer to Gear Advice on our FAQ section.

HOW TO GET THERE AND AWAY

This walk starts in Augusta and ends in Bunker Bay near Dunsborough.

Flights to and from Perth / Busselton
All major airlines fly into Perth if that is where you would like to start your trip. Alternatively you could fly directly to Busselton from Melbourne or Sydney on certain days only, other states will have a stopover. We recommend looking at flights prior to selecting your start date. Do not book flights until your walking holiday has been confirmed. You will then need to make your way to your first accommodation via the below options.

Arriving / Departing via Public Transport
This is a combined train and coach service operated by TransWA every day EXCEPT Saturday. You can plan your journey and purchase tickets through their website here

*if you must start on a Saturday you will need to use South West Coach Lines (visit their website here) to get to Margaret River and then arrange for a private transfer for the rest of the way to Augusta.

When departing you’ll need to take a short 15min taxi transfer from Pullman Bunker Bay to Dunsborough for your coach to Perth. This taxi transfer is included in your package, however you will need to book this yourself. Instructions will be in your information pack.

Arriving / Departing via Private Vehicle – Self Drive 
If driving your own car, we recommend leaving your car at the last accommodation – Pullman Bunker Bay. You will need to make your own way to Augusta via public transport, taxi or private transfer. There are many places to hire a car in Perth, please note there are no car rental depots in Augusta, Margaret River, Dunsborough or Busselton. The closest is Avis in Busselton. There is a one-way fee if the rental period is less than about 5 days.

Arriving / Departing via Private Transfer 
A private transfer is the fastest option and can be economical if you are part of group to split the cost. It will save you around 3 – 4 hours compared to public transport. Private transfers are subject to availability.

WEATHER

From March the temperature and humidity starts to drop and the walking is great. The middle of winter can be colder and wetter and river crossings may be difficult but with an ave temperature around 16-17 degrees it is still a fine time to walk. By September, springtime is in the air. This holiday is not available over the hot summer months of December to February

See the Bureau of Meteorology’s information about average temperatures and rainfall at different times of the year.

THE WALKING AND TRANSFERS

The track is flat with some sandy sections. Most of the Cape to Cape track traverses the escarpments and hills that line the coast giving you great unobstructed views over the reef shelf and the Indian Ocean as you walk. The walk is moderate to challenging, with some long days. Full-day walks average about 19km, with 5 –7.5 hours of walking each day. The walking is over mostly flat well-walked paths, bush tracks and some sandy sections. This is a really great opportunity for fit walkers to challenge themselves. This is a reasonably long and challenging walk, and we highly recommend that you incorporate a rest day.

Note: On some rare occasions, it may be necessary to be transferred with other walkers.

INSURANCE

We require that you have adequate travel insurance against potential losses, damage or injury, including cancellation costs and loss of luggage.

For all trips requiring international travel, you must have purchased travel insurance including medical evacuation coverage.

We also charge a cancellation fee if you cancel your walking holiday after we have confirmed it to cover costs incurred by our suppliers and in the office.  See the FAQ section for more information.

INFORMATION PACK

For nearly 30 years, we have taken pride in providing seamlessly organised walking holidays, but we know, even with that in mind, that you’ll have many more questions. You will receive a very detailed information pack and itinerary approximately 6 weeks out from departure outlining all the fine detail and much more.

    We have just returned and highly recommend this energetic walk in beautiful South West WA
    Varied and interesting terrain from towering Karri forest to coastal tracks teeming with wildflowers and wildlife. We could see whales and dolphins out in the ocean as we walked.

FAQS

Q: WHERE IS THE CAPE TO CAPE WALK?

The Cape to Cape walk is a 135 km trail located between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin in the far south west corner of Western Australia. It is approximately 260 kms from Perth and will take around 3 hours by vehicle. Did you know that this region is recognised worldwide as Australia's biodiversity hotspot?

Q: WHAT IS A SELF-GUIDED WALK?

A self-guided walk is designed for walkers who prefer to be independent. Travelling self-guided allows you to walk from place to place progressing from one accommodation to the next at your own pace with who you want when you want. You can Enjoy Worry-Free Navigation. Our detailed maps and route notes ensure that you'll easily find your way, whether you're a beginner or veteran explorer—no compass or GPS needed. The paths are signposted irregularly. However, it's a reasonably well-defined trail, so with the comprehensive notes, no technical expertise is required. Our self-guided trips offer the freedom to enjoy the splendid isolation of the trail, without the heavy weight of a pack on your back.

Q: HOW CHALLENGING IS THE WALK?

The walk is moderate to challenging with some long days. Full day walks average about 19 km with 5 –7.5 hours walking each day. The walking is over mostly flat well-walked paths, bush tracks and with a few long sandy sections. This is a really great opportunity for fit walkers to challenge themselves. This is a beautiful area with many fabulous attractions other than the track so we highly recommend that you incorporate

Q: CAN I COMPLETE THIS SELF-GUIDED TRIP ALONE?

Our Cape to Cape walks can be offered to solo walkers to tackle alone. An additional fee to cover the cost of the transfers will apply. (To find out more please call our friendly team). Please also consider the following: • Am I an experienced walker? • Have I completed multi-day walks in recent times? • Do I have a reasonable amount of first aid knowledge? • Will I be comfortable alone in some fairly remote areas? • Will I be able to cope with the possibility of a close encounter with snakes, ants, leeches, wasps, bees and ticks?

Q: DO I HAVE TO PAY A SINGLE SUPPLEMENT FEE IF I'M A SOLO WALKER?

Australian hotel accommodations (like the ones we use) charge the same, or just about the same price, regardless of whether there is one or two people in the room. This means that to cover the cost of the accommodation for your trip we do need to pass on a single supplement surcharge. This isn't a cost that we make any margin on and it is simply to cover the fact that the total room cost isn't being apportioned over two walkers.

Q: CAN YOU PROVIDE ME WITH A PERSONAL LOCATOR BEACON (EPIRB)

We want to ensure that you are kept safe should an emergency situation arise. A fully refundable fee (deposit) for the EPIRB (PLB) (upon return of the beacon) will apply. To find out more please contact our friendly team.

Q: WHO SHOULD I CONTACT IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY SITUATION?

It is essential that you carry a mobile phone (or satellite phone) on this holiday. If you have any serious problems, please contact Australia's emergency services directly on phone number 000. Please contact our support people on the ground if you need assistance that doesn't require emergency services intervention. These numbers will be provided in your walk notes.

Q: IF REQUIRED WILL THERE BE SUPPORT ON THE GROUND?

We know that you need 24/7 support and safety. You definitely won't be on your own during this self-guided walking adventure. Our local partners are the best people to contact if you have an issue on the walk. They are just a call away to help out if needed, no matter where you are or what the hour is. Auswalk is also there to assist; we will monitor your progress and can be contacted. We have carefully planned every aspect of your journey, from the best walking to seamless luggage transfers that whisk your bags from accommodation to accommodation while you're out walking so that you can walk hassle and stress-free.

Q: WHAT LEVEL OF ACCOMMODATION DO YOU PROVIDE?

All the accommodations have been chosen to reflect the character of the region. Accommodations can range from quality hotel rooms, studio apartments, chalets, units and villas; you can be assured that wherever you stay, you will be warmly welcomed. Most importantly, accommodations are in great locations and have all the necessary facilities to make your stay as comfortable as possible. You may like to add a rest day to your itinerary so that you can explore the magnificent Margaret River region. It is the wine and food capital of WA so there is an abundance of wineries, breweries and restaurants to visit. Perhaps you would like to head underground and visit one of this area’s magical caves.

Q: CAN YOU CATER FOR SPECIAL DIETARY REQUIREMENTS?

On our walks, we can cater for specific dietary requirements. Please kindly provide this information when completing your booking form and only provide us with a list of your allergies or those food items that you absolutely cannot eat.

Q: WILL I HAVE WI-FI ACCESS?

Wi-Fi access will be available at most accommodations along the track.

Q: HOW DO I GET ON AND OFF THE TRACK?

Some days you will walk directly out of your accommodation and or into your evening's accommodation. On the days where this isn't possible, we will provide the appropriate transfers for you on and off the track. Our transfer providers are locals and know the area you're walking in intimately. In many cases, they offer a wealth of knowledge on your destination having lived there for many years (sometimes all their life).

This is the wine and food capital of Western Australia, so there are a plethora of wineries to visit, to eat lunch at and relax. The Chocolate factory is also a great place to spend those well-earned calories you’ve already walked off.

Accommodation: Margaret River in ensuite rooms
Meals: Cooked breakfast, walkers lunch and dinner
Walking: Moderate / 17.5kms / 4.5–5.5 hrs

 

DAY 7
Rest Day in Margaret River

Why not stay an extra day and enjoy the ambience of the world-famous Margaret River Wine Region?  Margaret River is one of the world’s youngest wine regions in the world but has already received huge accolades in the past decade or so, particularly for its cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay.

The region is surrounded by ocean on three sides, which you have discovered already by walking some of the Cape to Cape. The pristine and geographically isolated environment ensures that every wine is special and no two are the same. The Margaret River region has 90 plus cellar doors (more than 65 of which are rated 5-star wineries by Halliday). Many of the wineries have casual cafés and even world-class restaurants.

Or put your feet up in your lodgings and wander around town if you get itchy feet.

Accommodation: Margaret River in ensuite rooms
Meals: Cooked breakfast

 

DAY 8
WILYABRUP  TO  YALLINGUP

Today has the longest distance to cover, but it’s scenic the entire way. Highlights include Wilyabrup Sea Cliffs, huge granite outcrops and two superb capes at Cape Clairault and Canal Rocks. The beach names here indicate popularity with surfers – The Window, Wildcat and Honeycombs.

Accommodation: Caves or Seashells Yallingup in ensuite rooms
Meals: Cooked breakfast, walkers lunch and dinner
Walking: Moderate to Challenging / 25km / 7–8 hrs

 

 

DAY 9
YALLINGUP TO CAPE NATURALISTE AND BUNKER BAY

This is the final section of the Cape to Cape walk. Hike from Canal Rocks Rd to Cape Naturaliste, then to Bunker Bay for the night. You’ll pass Sugarloaf Rock, the summer home to red-tailed tropic birds. Much of the coast here is limestone cliff, with short beaches and low rocky areas. Along the way, there are striking views of Sugarloaf Rock. You can celebrate successfully walking the longest coastal track in Australia, the Cape to Cape Track, with a luxury stay at the Pullman Bunker Bay.

Accommodation: Pullman Bunker Bay in ensuite rooms
Meals: Cooked breakfast, walkers lunch and dinner
Walking: Moderate to Challenging / 17km / 4–5 hrs

 

DAY 10
PULLMAN BUNKER BAY AND END OF WALK

The walk finishes after breakfast at Pullman Bunker Bay with a transfer to Dunsborough for transport connections. Or you could ask for a late check-out and enjoy the resort facilities, have a spa or massage. Many people also like to extend their holiday with another rest day at Bunker Bay (we can arrange this for you).

Fitness Guide

FITNESS GUIDE

It’s well worth investing some time and effort preparing for your walking holiday. The graph shows the average daily distance, elevation and terrain difficulty for your hike. The dotted line indicates the average across all our walks, which will give you a feel for how challenging your walk is compared to all – and the recommended type, and amount, of preparation needed.  Of course, you can adapt this according to your existing fitness levels and lifestyle.

The graph and the information below can be used in conjunction with the fitness guide to help you prepare for your walking adventure. Across all walks, average daily distance is 16.8km, average daily elevation is 448m, average terrain difficulty is 5/10.

ngraph

DISTANCE - ~AVERAGE

Distance training should be a consideration in your overall training program, so take every opportunity you can to walk. As you progress, incorporate longer walks into your training plan.

Schedule one or two long walks each week, gradually increasing the distance until you can comfortably cover 16km in a single day. Also include walks on consecutive days to help your body adapt to the demands of walking for multiple days in a row.

Ensure you can comfortably walk the average distance per day displayed in the graph, at least one month before you undertake your hike.

ELEVATION - BELOW AVERAGE

Elevation is not a major consideration in your overall training program. However, you should still incorporate some form of resistance training to increase your endurance.

TERRAIN

SAND TERRAIN

To prepare for walking on sand you will need specialised training owing to the soft and yielding nature of this type of terrain. It has a distinct impact on the body, especially the calf muscles as you get older. Sand moves when we walk and can lead to the overextension of the calf muscles resulting in discomfort and aches over prolonged periods.

To avoid this you should target exercises for lower body strength such as lunges, squats, and calf raises. Incorporate barefoot walks on soft surfaces such as grass to improve balance and foot muscle strength. Practice walking on the beach or sand dunes if you can to acclimatise to the unique demands of a sandy terrain.

UNEVEN TERRAIN

Preparation for hiking on uneven terrain demands a blend of physical and mental readiness.

Begin with balance-enhancing exercises, such as one-legged stands and stability ball workouts, laying a groundwork for stability and coordination. Strengthening the lower body is especially important, achieved through the incorporation of squats, lunges, and step-ups. Gradually increase the complexity of the terrain on which you walk, moving from gravel paths to rocky trails. Cultivate mindfulness during your practice, directing focused attention to both your immediate surroundings and precise foot placement.

The importance of suitable footwear cannot be overstated; prioritise options that offer robust support and reliable grip to navigate varying terrains with confidence. Build endurance through consistent hikes, progressively increasing distance and difficulty.

General Info

GENERAL INFO

We hike the Cape to Cape from south to north to avoid the prevailing weather conditions. It starts in Augusta, about 350km south of Perth. You can get to the Cape to Cape track by public or private transport.

For what to bring, please refer to Gear Advice on our FAQ section.

HOW TO GET THERE AND AWAY

This walk starts in Augusta and ends in Bunker Bay near Dunsborough.

Flights to and from Perth / Busselton
All major airlines fly into Perth if that is where you would like to start your trip. Alternatively you could fly directly to Busselton from Melbourne or Sydney on certain days only, other states will have a stopover. We recommend looking at flights prior to selecting your start date. Do not book flights until your walking holiday has been confirmed. You will then need to make your way to your first accommodation via the below options.

Arriving / Departing via Public Transport
This is a combined train and coach service operated by TransWA every day EXCEPT Saturday. You can plan your journey and purchase tickets through their website here

*if you must start on a Saturday you will need to use South West Coach Lines (visit their website here) to get to Margaret River and then arrange for a private transfer for the rest of the way to Augusta.

When departing you’ll need to take a short 15min taxi transfer from Pullman Bunker Bay to Dunsborough for your coach to Perth. This taxi transfer is included in your package, however you will need to book this yourself. Instructions will be in your information pack.

Arriving / Departing via Private Vehicle – Self Drive 
If driving your own car, we recommend leaving your car at the last accommodation – Pullman Bunker Bay. You will need to make your own way to Augusta via public transport, taxi or private transfer. There are many places to hire a car in Perth, please note there are no car rental depots in Augusta, Margaret River, Dunsborough or Busselton. The closest is Avis in Busselton. There is a one-way fee if the rental period is less than about 5 days.

Arriving / Departing via Private Transfer 
A private transfer is the fastest option and can be economical if you are part of group to split the cost. It will save you around 3 – 4 hours compared to public transport. Private transfers are subject to availability.

WEATHER

From March the temperature and humidity starts to drop and the walking is great. The middle of winter can be colder and wetter and river crossings may be difficult but with an ave temperature around 16-17 degrees it is still a fine time to walk. By September, springtime is in the air. This holiday is not available over the hot summer months of December to February

See the Bureau of Meteorology’s information about average temperatures and rainfall at different times of the year.

THE WALKING AND TRANSFERS

The track is flat with some sandy sections. Most of the Cape to Cape track traverses the escarpments and hills that line the coast giving you great unobstructed views over the reef shelf and the Indian Ocean as you walk. The walk is moderate to challenging, with some long days. Full-day walks average about 19km, with 5 –7.5 hours of walking each day. The walking is over mostly flat well-walked paths, bush tracks and some sandy sections. This is a really great opportunity for fit walkers to challenge themselves. This is a reasonably long and challenging walk, and we highly recommend that you incorporate a rest day.

Note: On some rare occasions, it may be necessary to be transferred with other walkers.

INSURANCE

We require that you have adequate travel insurance against potential losses, damage or injury, including cancellation costs and loss of luggage.

For all trips requiring international travel, you must have purchased travel insurance including medical evacuation coverage.

We also charge a cancellation fee if you cancel your walking holiday after we have confirmed it to cover costs incurred by our suppliers and in the office.  See the FAQ section for more information.

    We have just returned and highly recommend this energetic walk in beautiful South West WA
    Varied and interesting terrain from towering Karri forest to coastal tracks teeming with wildflowers and wildlife. We could see whales and dolphins out in the ocean as we walked.
    Auswalk is a friendly efficient company and they arranged our transport, accommodation and food seamlessly

Faqs

FAQS

Q: WHERE IS THE CAPE TO CAPE WALK?

The Cape to Cape walk is a 135 km trail located between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin in the far south west corner of Western Australia. It is approximately 260 kms from Perth and will take around 3 hours by vehicle. Did you know that this region is recognised worldwide as Australia's biodiversity hotspot?

Q: WHAT IS A SELF-GUIDED WALK?

A self-guided walk is designed for walkers who prefer to be independent. Travelling self-guided allows you to walk from place to place progressing from one accommodation to the next at your own pace with who you want when you want. You can Enjoy Worry-Free Navigation. Our detailed maps and route notes ensure that you'll easily find your way, whether you're a beginner or veteran explorer—no compass or GPS needed. The paths are signposted irregularly. However, it's a reasonably well-defined trail, so with the comprehensive notes, no technical expertise is required. Our self-guided trips offer the freedom to enjoy the splendid isolation of the trail, without the heavy weight of a pack on your back.

Q: HOW CHALLENGING IS THE WALK?

The walk is moderate to challenging with some long days. Full day walks average about 19 km with 5 –7.5 hours walking each day. The walking is over mostly flat well-walked paths, bush tracks and with a few long sandy sections. This is a really great opportunity for fit walkers to challenge themselves. This is a beautiful area with many fabulous attractions other than the track so we highly recommend that you incorporate

Q: CAN I COMPLETE THIS SELF-GUIDED TRIP ALONE?

Our Cape to Cape walks can be offered to solo walkers to tackle alone. An additional fee to cover the cost of the transfers will apply. (To find out more please call our friendly team). Please also consider the following: • Am I an experienced walker? • Have I completed multi-day walks in recent times? • Do I have a reasonable amount of first aid knowledge? • Will I be comfortable alone in some fairly remote areas? • Will I be able to cope with the possibility of a close encounter with snakes, ants, leeches, wasps, bees and ticks?

Q: DO I HAVE TO PAY A SINGLE SUPPLEMENT FEE IF I'M A SOLO WALKER?

Australian hotel accommodations (like the ones we use) charge the same, or just about the same price, regardless of whether there is one or two people in the room. This means that to cover the cost of the accommodation for your trip we do need to pass on a single supplement surcharge. This isn't a cost that we make any margin on and it is simply to cover the fact that the total room cost isn't being apportioned over two walkers.

Q: CAN YOU PROVIDE ME WITH A PERSONAL LOCATOR BEACON (EPIRB)

We want to ensure that you are kept safe should an emergency situation arise. A fully refundable fee (deposit) for the EPIRB (PLB) (upon return of the beacon) will apply. To find out more please contact our friendly team.

Q: WHO SHOULD I CONTACT IF THERE IS AN EMERGENCY SITUATION?

It is essential that you carry a mobile phone (or satellite phone) on this holiday. If you have any serious problems, please contact Australia's emergency services directly on phone number 000. Please contact our support people on the ground if you need assistance that doesn't require emergency services intervention. These numbers will be provided in your walk notes.

Q: IF REQUIRED WILL THERE BE SUPPORT ON THE GROUND?

We know that you need 24/7 support and safety. You definitely won't be on your own during this self-guided walking adventure. Our local partners are the best people to contact if you have an issue on the walk. They are just a call away to help out if needed, no matter where you are or what the hour is. Auswalk is also there to assist; we will monitor your progress and can be contacted. We have carefully planned every aspect of your journey, from the best walking to seamless luggage transfers that whisk your bags from accommodation to accommodation while you're out walking so that you can walk hassle and stress-free.

Q: WHAT LEVEL OF ACCOMMODATION DO YOU PROVIDE?

All the accommodations have been chosen to reflect the character of the region. Accommodations can range from quality hotel rooms, studio apartments, chalets, units and villas; you can be assured that wherever you stay, you will be warmly welcomed. Most importantly, accommodations are in great locations and have all the necessary facilities to make your stay as comfortable as possible. You may like to add a rest day to your itinerary so that you can explore the magnificent Margaret River region. It is the wine and food capital of WA so there is an abundance of wineries, breweries and restaurants to visit. Perhaps you would like to head underground and visit one of this area’s magical caves.

Q: CAN YOU CATER FOR SPECIAL DIETARY REQUIREMENTS?

On our walks, we can cater for specific dietary requirements. Please kindly provide this information when completing your booking form and only provide us with a list of your allergies or those food items that you absolutely cannot eat.

Q: WILL I HAVE WI-FI ACCESS?

Wi-Fi access will be available at most accommodations along the track.

Q: HOW DO I GET ON AND OFF THE TRACK?

Some days you will walk directly out of your accommodation and or into your evening's accommodation. On the days where this isn't possible, we will provide the appropriate transfers for you on and off the track. Our transfer providers are locals and know the area you're walking in intimately. In many cases, they offer a wealth of knowledge on your destination having lived there for many years (sometimes all their life).

Q: WHAT WILL BE INCLUDED IN MY PRE-DEPARTURE PACK?

You will receive an information pack before departure, including comprehensive Auswalk walking notes. Your pre-departure pack will be mailed around 6 weeks prior to departure after full payment has been made
