Easy track
Starting from the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse car park at the end of Cape Naturaliste Road, Cape Naturaliste, this walk takes you to Sugarloaf Rock and back via the Cape to Cape Track. The epic Cape to Cape Track stretches 124km from end to end, but it also offers plenty of shorter walks for those on a time limit. The 'Access for More' section runs between the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse and Sugarloaf Rock, providing an exceptional experience for walkers of all abilities. This stretch of the iconic Cape to Cape takes in the magnificent coastline, rock formations and vegetation, offering some of the most stunning coastal scenery in the region, with beautiful wildflowers in spring and wonderful views year-round. The trail is a mix of sealed pathways and boardwalk with a mostly flat or gentle downhill gradient, making it pram-friendly and wheelchair accessible. Conveniently placed benches allow walkers to rest and enjoy the view and trailside signage provides detailed information on the landscape and wildlife of this coastal environment. Additionally, Sugarloaf Rock is a mating site for red-tailed tropicbirds as it creates a safe zone from coastal predators. They mate for life and come back to the area annually. You can also explore the rocky sections and geological formations along the coastline and look for whales migrating between September and November. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
