Well they say “third time lucky”, so this is the year when we finally make it to WA to do the Cape to Cape walk. The Cape to Cape track is located in the far south-west corner of WA. The walk is approximately 125 kms and follows the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge between the lighthouses of Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin. The coastal scenery is spectacular and hopefully the wildflowers will be in bloom.

The plan is to base ourselves at Margaret River and do car shuffles to the start/end of the walk each day.

I have booked 2 x 2-bedroom self-contained units at the Riverview Tourist Park (each unit sleeps 4 – 1Q, 2S) and can book more if required. The accommodation is on a twin share basis. If you prefer to book your own unit, please let me know at the time of nominating. The accommodation cost for 8 nights on a twin share basis will be approximately $400 per person. The Riverview Tourist Park is set beside the Margaret River and is about 600m from the town centre.

The plan is to collect hire cars at Perth airport early afternoon on Monday 10 October and drive to Margaret River (you will need to arrive at Perth Airport by 1.00pm on the 10th). Day 2 will be available for shopping for food supplies, sightseeing, visiting wineries, etc. The walk will be undertaken over the following 6 days, with daily distances varying between 15 to 25kms. We will depart Margaret River for Perth on the morning of 18 October, so there is the option to fly home late afternoon on the 18th October, or extend your stay if you so wish.

Please nominate by 31 May 2022 as we will need to book hire cars early. Quite a few people have already expressed interest in the walk. A share of the cost of the hire cars will be requested in June once the cost is known.
