Our Margaret River Accommodation is a great base to walk the Cape to Cape Track

In the far south west corner of Western Australia, a broad peninsula projects into the Indian Ocean.  Running north to south along its western edge, between Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin, is a windswept limestone ridge, perched on a basement of ancient and resistant granite rocks. This long thin strip of land forms the backbone of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, and is the setting of the Cape to Cape Walk Track, a 140 kilometre long trail
