Cape to Cape
We start the 9 day adventure with hiking the best sections of the famous Cape to Cape track in southern Western Australia. With 4 big days we cover over 70Km, with shorter options for those that want to take it a little easier. We visit fresh local produce, wineries and explore the lovely towns of the Margaret River area. The walking is on sand, single track and wider tracks and most sections are grade 2-3. There are no big hills but some of the sand is pretty soft! The longest single section is 20km, then some half day walks from 7-15km with our biggest day totalling 26km.
Our goal of supporting you on this packless hiking trip allows you to put more of your energy into seven days of walking. With us carrying lunch and all the bits and pieces for the day out, you can walk easier with your day bag and some water, and of course your camera! Then get a great night’s sleep in the accommodation and be ready for the next day feeling refreshed.
This incredible tour doesn’t stop there! After a rest night at Perth airport, we meet anyone doing the Ningaloo section of the tour and jump on the plane to Exmouth (flight included) and later that very same day, we will have you snorkelling and kayaking! This tour is now all about what’s in the water…we get to spend a memory filled day snorkelling and swimming with the massive giants of the oceans. Plus many other opportunities to step off the beach straight into pristine coral reefs and an amazing array of colourful fish. We take the opportunity to kayak out to see dolphins and swim with turtles and stingrays. Plus we have added a couple of unexpectedly spectacular short walks to makes this one hell of an adventure.
With our professional guides and our unique way of filling your days to ensure you get the most out of your time here. So don’t go for a ‘fly and flop’ holiday, get on board with TSA and let us make your holiday be an experience to remember. We promise you will have an amazing time…what more could you ask for?
