Start the day with breakfast at Lamonts Cafe, then a stunning guided walk over granite boulders, through natural swimming pools, and into the world-class Injidup Beach. An early-afternoon winery visit leads us back to Smiths Beach for a free afternoon for relaxing, massages, or whatever calls you before an evening seafood BBQ.
Day 3 : Walk from Moses Rock to Wilyabrup (8.25km), Winery visits and Leeuwin Estate Lunch
Enjoy breakfast from a hamper provided by Cape to Cape Moveable Feast, then begin the day with a stunning walk.

A wonderfully constructed staircase then guides walkers up and onto the stunning sea cliffs that form the famous climbing buttresses of Wilyabrup Cliffs. After walking up an appetite you will fly in a light aircraft over the stunning coastline of Margaret River to Leeuwin Estate for a dazzling lunch offering. Return to Smiths Beach late afternoon for a light dinner.
