The Cape to Cape track is 135 kilometres long and goes between the lighthouses of Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin. The track mostly follows the coast and offers stunning views of the coast line. While we were there we hiked a small portion of the track and now we have a fire in our belly to take on the challenge and walk the whole track.

  1. We have been to Margaret River on two occasions and never knew this camping ground existed. I so wish we had because we were looking for somewhere during our past trip in our caravan. We ended up in the caravan park in Margaret River instead. Looks like a lovely spot and I will be sure to write this down. 🙂 #TeamLovinLife
