The greatest walk in WA


The prestigious Great Walks of Australia has a new inclusion – the Margaret River region’s picturesque Cape to Cape Track.

With nine members, Great Walks of Australia is a collection of the best walking experiences across the country featuring coastal, inland and outback trails, high-end accommodation, incredible food and wine and expert guides.

 

In a first for Western Australia, the list recently expanded to include Walk into Luxury’s four-day Cape to Cape Walk. Passing through the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park and along Australia’s most south-westerly coastline, the walk exposes guests to the turquoise Indian Ocean, immaculate white beaches, dramatic coastal cliffs and towering karri forests

 

A truly top-end experience, the package combines this spectacular walk trail with the region’s renowned food and wine, exclusive activities and luxurious accommodation.

 

At the end of each day, guests head back to the secluded luxury of their own private plunge pool villa with uninterrupted ocean views at the five-star Indijup Spa Retreat.

Dining highlights include meals at two of the region’s best restaurants – Wills Domain and Cape Lodge, and a private chef dinner showcasing local produce with a local winemaker on hand to present their wines.

 

And only Walk into Luxury guests will experience a special twilight didgeridoo performance with one of the area’s Aboriginal Owners and clifftop sunset drinks overlooking the Indian Ocean.

 

Nikki and Adam King, owners of Walk into Luxury, are thrilled to be joining Great Walks of Australia and to be the first to put WA on the Great Walks map as a world class walking destination.

 

“This recognition is a credit to our team and an exciting opportunity for the Margaret River region and our many local partners. Our hope is that, as a Great Walk, the Margaret River Cape to Cape Walk will help drive increased walker numbers to WA, especially from international markets such as North America, UK, Europe and NZ,” they said.

Geoff Dixon, Chair of Great Walks of Australia, is equally excited to welcome the Margaret River Cape to Cape Walk into the portfolio. 

 

“We know from our trade and media partners that there’s a strong interest in this region so when Walk into Luxury approached us with is four-day itinerary that captures the unique beauty of Australia’s South West, it was obvious that they were a perfect fit for the Great Walks of Australia brand,” he said. “We look forward to working with them and showcasing the diversity of Australia’s guided walking experiences.”

 

Walk into Luxury offers their four-day Cape to Cape Walk during autumn and spring – a particularly spectacular time of the year in Western Australia’s South West thanks to the abundance of native wildflowers.
