Nature buffs love Cape to Cape Track

Cape to Cape TrackNature buffs Jan Edwards and Susanne De Ferranti are in awe of the Cape to Cape Track and the floral diversity and beauty it boasts.

“We saw fields of flowers. It was really amazing,” Jan said after her second day on the Margaret River region’s favourite walking track.

“The banksia and the orchids are particularly lovely.

“And the wildflowers are starting to come out too. They’re gorgeous.”

More about the Track

Stretching 135km, the Track traverses a recognised world biodiversity hotspot and hugs the rugged coast from Yallingup via Margaret River to Augusta. That’s where the Indian and Southern oceans meet.

The ladies, along with Jan’s husband Mike, made the trip to Western Australia from Sydney. They’re mid-way through a self-guided, four-day highlights package.  Cape to Cape Explorer Tours is helping with track transfers, accomodation and logistics.

Time for wine

They’re also planning on visiting some of Margaret River’s world-famous wineries in between hikes on the Track.

“And sitting down to some tasty lunches. I hear the produce and food, as well as the wine, is very good in Margaret River,” Susanne said.

Fit to hike

The trio agreed a reasonable level of fitness was enough to handle each day’s walking, covering about 15 a day. That’s on a combination of trails through the coastal heathland, with the occasional sandy beach crossing.

“We’re feeling great. It’s so lovely to be in the outdoors with views of the ocean,” Jan said.
