"Move for Mental Health" Cape to Cape Guided 'End to End' 8 Day Experience based at Surfpoint Resort

Come adventure with us as we walk from lighthouse to lighthouse, along stunning coastal landscape from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin, to raise awareness for mamas who are struggling emotionally with post natal depression/anxiety. Allowing each hiker with the opportunity to experience and explore how movement/exercise can be a powerful coping strategy in the journey to recovery.

All funds raised will be donated to the Gidget Foundation, a charity doing amazing work, creating change and impacting those mamas that need it most. Last year we raised over $34,000!

Hike for yourself or hike in the place of someone that you know has or is struggling with depression/anxiety.

In registering as a "Move for Mental Health" hiker we ask that you commit to raising at least $500 in sponsorship (hopefully more!) from friends, family, colleagues and maybe those who want to be a part of creating change in your networks. For more information on sponsorship and fundraising contact Kylianne on kylianne@themovementroom.com.au

Itinerary:

Day 1 Sunday 10th November: Walk Cape Naturaliste to Yallingup 13.75km

Enjoy complimentary morning pick up from Perth CBD in Cape to Cape Explorer Tours’ transfer vehicle straight down to begin walking from Cape Naturaliste.  At the end of the day you'll be driven to our "home base" to shower, relax, and enjoy a beautiful meal together.

Day 2 Monday 11th November: Yallingup to Moses Rock 18.75km

From Yallingup pass over the granite headlands to grab a quick coffee at Smiths Beach, before weaving through stunning areas of limestone cliffs leading to the stunted vegetation and granite fields of Moses Rock.

Day 3 Tuesday 12th November: Moses Rock to Gracetown 16.25kms

This morning the Track rises high over several large limestone headlands before you reach a wonderfully constructed staircase up to the stunning sea cliffs that form the famous climbing buttresses of Wilyabrup Cliffs. The Track passes the famous, though severe, surfing breaks of Gallows and Guillotines, and finally takes you into the pretty hamlet of Gracetown. Relax here and enjoy an afternoon swim to sooth the muscles and mind!

Day 4 Wednesday 13th November: Gracetown to Prevelly 21km

Beginning at the picturesque hamlet of Gracetown, follow the low coastline to the historic settlement of Ellensbrook. From Ellensbrook Homestead, the Track quickly leaves the coast and meanders through sand dunes to the turquoise bay of Kilcarnup. Marvel at the centuries-old osprey nest in Horseshoe Bay.

Day 5 Thursday 14th November: Prevelly to Boranup Forest 22.5km

Take in some of the world’s finest surfing coastline from the limestone ridge at Prevelly then head down into the sheltered creekline of Boodjidup Brook. Continue along the white sands of Boodjidup Beach before reaching historic Redgate Beach. Next is very likely one of the best sections of the Cape to Cape Track: the scenic coastal cliffs at Bob’s Hollow and Contos.

Day 6 Friday 15th November: Boranup Forest to Cosy Corner 21km

This morning is spent under the canopy of the famous Boranup Forest. We head south, and down onto the stunningly beautiful and often deserted Boranup Beach. 6kms of sand walking later, find the protected Hamelin Bay, home to friendly stingrays who love a feed of freshly caught fish! Continue on past the many islands and headlands until you arrive at the stunning Cosy Corner.

Day 7 Saturday 16th November: Cosy Corner to Cape Leeuwin 21.5km

The last leg of the Cape to Cape Track, this stretch is true wilderness with limited road access, the sights are reserved for the local hooded plovers and walkers. Granite headlands are broken up by long sections of shoe-sucking sand. Formidable, but every step takes you closer to the Leeuwin lighthouse and the moment of celebration.  We'll head out for an epic celebration meal tonight with an accompanying slide show of the week's photos!

Day 8 Sunday 17th: Departure Day

Depart Surfpoint Resort via Margaret River townsite for Perth in Cape to Cape Explorer Tours’ transfer vehicle approx 9am.
