We love hiking with students and encouraging schools on the Cape to Cape Track, including this recent camp with Yallingup Steiner School! The Year 6 students are gradually tackling sections of the Track. And by the  end of primary school they will have hiked from Eagle Bay to Hamelin Bay.

Students passionate and present on the Track

Andrew our schools co-ordinator led the most recent two-day camp. And he said the Cape to Cape Track was alive from recent rains and teeming with wildflife. “We had such an amazing time. The kids were so passionate and present. It’s amazing to see them respond to being immersed in nature,” he says.

Rains bring the Track to life with flora and fauna 

Andrew went on to describe some highlight moments. “Winding down to Wilyabrup Brook, the river playground was revealed,” he says. “The winter rains were flowing into the ocean. Exposing ancient rocks, rushing rapids and epic sand bars. We rock-hopped and explored this ephemeral marvel.”

Fun, games, connection – and hiking

The kids even made mini finger surfboards out of cuttlefish shells and used them to surf the rapids in the creek. “Then, picking our best cuttlefish boats, we had an epic race down the river,” Andrew says. “A word of advice. Smaller cuttlefish boats are better. They’re less likely to sink and get caught up, like mine did right at the beginning! Haha!”
