The Cape to Cape team continues to grow with more fabulous new talent joining the ranks of our experienced guides and drivers! We’ve recently welcomed Anu Grace and Ian Dignon to the team. They’re both amazing additions who are super talented at leading guided hikes. And they come with an absolute wealth of knowledge and experience of the natural world.

Amazing Anu joins the Cape to Cape team

It was full moon in February 2023 when Anu (pictured above) found herself transported out of her bus at 2am and walking the Cape to Cape Track by moonlight at Yallingup. It was at this moment she knew she wanted to facilitate hikes on Margaret River’s epic coastal hiking trail! Anu is quickly amassing local knowledge. And beginning her journey as a guide, assisted by a strong respect for and connection to Country. A touring musician for many years, Anu and her partner Laurie were magnetised by the South-West. They’ve moved to the Witchcliffe Ecovillage near Margaret River, building a small hemp house and edible garden. Anu is usually armed with her ukulele – so don’t hestitate to ask her for a bus singalong or a uke ditty!

Interesting Ian relishing his outdoor office

Ian (pictured above) spent most of his career as a health and physical education teacher in the UK. And later he worked in Western Australia. Here, he was a keen visitor to the South-West for camping, body boarding and wine tasting. A thirst for adventure saw him lead international student tours to Tanzania, India and Nepal. And he led hiking and abseiling camps on the Cape to Cape Track. He’s hiked every step of Margaret River’s 124km trail – twice! Life changed when Ian moved to Margaret River in 2021, and he joined our team as a guide and driver. “I love the company’s ethos and team spirit,” he says. When he’s not on the Track, Ian volunteers for Arts Margaret River and the Margaret River Men’s Shed. And stays busy mountain biking, hiking, ocean swimming and playing guitar. Top stuff Ian!
