Cape to Cape Track Maps

The Cape to Cape Track is 135 km long walking track located within the The Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, which is found on the South-west coast of Western Australia (the famous Margaret River wine growing region). The Cape to Cape Track northern trailhead is at the Cape Naturaliste lighthouse and the southern trailhead is at Cape Leeuwin lighthouse.

At long last, the Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) has published a set maps of the track in the form of two maps. Map 1 in the set covers the Cape to Cape Track from Cape Naturaliste (northern trailhead) to Prevelly and Map 2 in the set covers the Cape to Cape Track from Prevelly to Cape Leeuwin (southern trailhead).

I walked the track in 2002 and there where no actual maps of the track, so it has taken at least six years to get them published. In all honesty a pretty poor effort on behalf of DEC.

They have a RRP of $11.00 each and can be purchased online from the Department of Environment and Conservation.

Besides the relatively new Cape to Cape Track maps, the original set of five sketch maps covering the track may still be available.  These retail for approx., $2.20 each or for a reduced price if all five are purchased as a set.  Scans from these sketch maps, giving a general indication of the track are available for download from my Dropbox.  The scans are provided for general information only.  You should really purchase your own copies if at all possible.  The sketch maps are:

  • Cape to Cape Walk Track – Section 1 – Cape Naturaliste to Wyadup – 20 km
  • Cape to Cape Walk Track – Section 2 – Wyadup to Cowaramup Bay – 27 km
  • Cape to Cape Walk Track – Section 3 – Cowaramup Bay to Redgate Beach – 31 km
  • Cape to Cape Walk Track – Section 4 – Redgate Beach to Hamelin Bay – 29 km
  • Cape to Cape Walk Track – Section 5 – Hamelin Bay to Cape Leeuwin – 29 km

Cape to Cape Track Notes

I have also completed to end to end walks of the Cape to Cape Track a north – south walk in 2002 and a revisit, south – north wak in 2009. Clicking on the links will take you to my write ups of those walks. Hopefully this provides a bit more of a hands on take of the Cape to Cape Track.

    Hi, I was wondering if i could get a copy of those cape to cape sketch maps from you – am thinking about doing the walk in a few weeks 🙂

    Thanks very much for the site – especially the write ups of your walks!

    Cheers, Kerry

    Hi,
    We walked a section of the track this morning and it was so good we are looking to do more immediately.
    Could you please send us a copy of the sketch maps.
    Thanks
    Barry

    Very good write-ups, thank you – I think more informative than the guidebook.
    I’ve tried to get hold of the 5 sketch maps, can’t find them. My Scout Troop is hiking the Track this coming week end, could I trouble you for a copy of the maps, please.
    Many thanks, Derek

      Thanks for your feedback. The sketch maps can now be downloaded directly from my Dropbox. I hope you find them handy and have a great walk.
