Western Australia’s Margaret River region really promises (and delivers) the whole package. Sweeping beach vistas, wilderness within reach, world-class wineries, gourmet destinations and so much more. Now you can enjoy one of the region’s most spectacular walks – the Cape to Cape track in absolute luxury,
The 135km coastal track located within Leeuwin-Naturaliste national Park extends from Cape Naturaliste (near Yallingup) in the north to Cape Leeuwin (near Augusta) in the south. The track winds along turquoise waters framed by white sandy beaches and dramatic coastal cliffs to the Karri trees of Boranup forest. It culminates at the dramatic Cape Leeuwin where the Indian and Southern oceans meet.
Walk into Luxury itineraries allow hikers to enjoy the very best this unforgettable track has to offer. In Spring there are multi-coloured wildflowers as far as the eye can see and wildlife to spot year round from dolphins and whales to emus, kangaroos, lizards and birds.
The very best of Margaret River’s food and wine is showcased throughout all the itineraries. Gourmet hampers from Blue Ginger Fine Food delicatessen are laden with treats that are suitable to enjoy whilst trekking. After a day of walking innovative canapés and tasty morsels by Amanda Anderson Catering await in your accommodation. The very best brewers and wineries including Eagle Bay Beers, Cullens Wines and Margaret River Beverage Co.’s non-alcoholic beverages can also be sampled in your suite.
Accommodation for the 4, 5 and 8-day walks is at some of the Australia’s most luxurious retreats. Smiths Beach Resort is also home to Lamonts – tapas Wine bar, gourmet deli and a la carte Restaurant. Pullman Resort Bunker Bay boasts glamorous studios as well as 1, 2 or 3 bedroom villas overlooking Bunker Bay. Other Side of the Moon is the resort’s signature restaurant where buffet breakfast starts in style everyday with complimentary sparkling. Leeuwin Estate, Wills Domain and Studio Bistro are destinations in themselves depending on the itinerary.
Nikki King, owner of Walk into Luxury says, “”We identified a niche for people wanting to experience the spectacular beauty of the Cape to Cape walk trail, but aren’t necessarily keen on camping or ‘roughing it. “Our packages include luxury accommodation, post-walk massages, daily in-villa canapés and wines, exclusive dining and wine tasting experiences at renowned wineries and restaurants – it really is a feast for the senses,” she said.
So what else besides amazing scenery, itineraries designed for all fitness levels, post-walk massages, plunge pools, gourmet meals 3 times a day and the finest Margaret River Wines? Simply, a unique chance to relax, a perfect opportunity to recharge the batteries and connect with nature all in comfort and style in one of the world’s most stunning locations.
