38 seconds of Cape to Cape bliss

We can’t get enough of this short (but epic) video of a hike on the Cape to Cape Track by Australia.com’s Jesse Desjardins. Voted one of the Top Ten Multi-Day Walks in Australia by Australian Geographic, the track meanders along 135km of divine beaches, karri and marri forest and rocky outcrops, all accompanied by spectacular views.

Where Jesse went

Enjoying the track in all its spring glory, Jesse walked sections from Yallingup to Gracetown and from Prevelly to Conto.

An incredible track in our own backyard

Jesse, Tourism Australia’s Global Manager of Social & Content based in Sydney, is quickly becoming an addict of the Cape to Cape Track, making the journey over to our beautiful corner of WA whenever he can. We asked him why he enjoys it so much:

“It’s incredible that this is in our own backyard. This is second time I’ve done the walk. The first time I did the entire track on my own, sleeping on the beach or at the many campsites along the way. It was quite the experience. This time I did it with a mate which was equally as good. Every morning, every stretch of the track and every sunset was always very different. I’m already looking forward to the next trip.”

A note for dog owners – while Jesse came across a friendly pooch on the hike, dogs aren’t allowed in national parkland in Your Margaret River Region. If you’re bringing your poochie on holidays, there are plenty of dog friendly walk trails in the region, so drop us an email on [email protected] and we’ll send you the best pet-friendly spots.
