Photo Gallery: Cape to Cape Track. WA.
Photos: Lyn Hewitt
The Cape to Cape Track is situated in the far SW corner of Western Australia. It runs 135 kilometres along the spine of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge, between the two lighthouses of Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin. It is renown for its spectacular coastal scenery, wildflower displays, geology, maritime history and surfing beaches.
The track parallels a pristine coastline but there are several inland loops including the very scenic Boranup Karri Forest. The Cape to Cape is not as easy as it superficially appears and you need to take into account some long 20+ kilometre days, long sandy sections and fickle weather. My walking friends and I spent eight days on the walk in autumn but some groups do the walk in five days.
The following photos were taken by one of my walking friends, Lyn Hewitt . Lyn records more than the standard bushwalker shots of landscapes and people hiking. In this collection are some of her excellent nature shots as well as a few of the usual bushwalker landscape shots.
