How to get from Cape to Cape

There’s a lot to love about the South West corner of Australia – a rugged coastline, spectacular caves,  beautiful wineries, some great places to eat, and, in Spring, the wildflowers are out too. It’s no wonder this part of the country has inspired so many brilliant stories. You can’t visit Cape Leeuwin lighthouse without feeling the isolation that is so hauntingly evoked in M.L Stedman’s The Light Between Oceans. And it’s hard not to watch a surfer without thinking of Tim Winton’s gritty Breath. Just hoping some of the WA magic rubs off on my writing!

Cape Leeuwin lighthouse, WA

Great walks:

Canal Rocks, WA

The Coast to Coast track from Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin is 135 Km of stunning natural beauty. We did short sections rather than the whole lot. The Canal Rocks area was a highlight.

Great eating:

Lunch at Leeuwin Estate winery

The Leeuwin Estate restaurant is amazing and for deliciously casual fare try the Margaret River Bakery.

Great accomodation:

Smith's Beach, WA

I loved the Injidup Spa Retreat for its beautiful hill-top setting and for the delicious supplies packed into the fridge every morning.

Enjoy!
