Getting there

There are several ways to get to the Cape to Cape track from Perth. Check out our Gallery for some of the impressive private transfer options we offer our private walk guests, or read about them below. Guests on our small group Cape to Cape (Margaret River) walk enjoy return group transfers from the Perth CBD to the Margaret River region with their booking.

Drive

Driving provides you with the freedom to explore the Margaret River wine region before or after your walk. If you don’t want to have a car with you for the duration of your walk, you can drive one way, and fly (or get a car or limo transfer) in the other direction. Cars are available for hire from Perth Domestic Airport and Perth International Airport, and from several central locations in Perth city. Cars are also available for hire in Margaret River – we recommend Margaret River Rent a Car. At the time of booking your Cape To Cape Walk, you will have the option of adding a car collection service ($75) or a car relocation service ($200) to your booking.

  • The “car collection” service involves a driver taking you to collect your car at the end of your walk or, if you drop your car off to your last hotel prior to starting your walk, a driver collecting you from the drop-off point and transferring you to the first hotel.
  • The “car relocation” service involves two drivers moving your car for you so it is waiting in the hotel carpark at the end of your walk.

Please note that there are restrictions on where your vehicle can be parked during your walk. If you select a car collection or car relocation service, we will ensure your vehicle is parked safely in an acceptable location. If you plan to make your own parking and drop-off/collection arrangements, that is fine, but please contact us for additional information about where to park.

Private car transfer or limousine

Another option is to let an experienced chauffeur driver transfer you from Perth to the south-west in a luxury vehicle or stretch limousine (seating eight passengers). The luxury vehicle options include a Holden Statesman (seats 4 passengers), Mercedes S-class (seats 4 passengers), and a Mercedes Viano (seats 6 passengers). Transfers cost $500 each way for a luxury car transfer and $850 each way for a limousine transfer. Private car and limousine transfers may be added to your walk at the time of booking.

Helicopter

Time is precious, so why not take a 60 minute helicopter flight from Perth to Margaret River. There is a helipad at Pullman Bunker Bay Resort which allows you to be dropped at the doorstep of the start of the eight day walk. Otherwise you will be transferred to Margaret River airstrip, and chauffeured to Smiths Beach Resort for the start of your four or five day walk. Price on application.  Various seating configurations available.  Note – you will have the option of requesting at the time of booking to be contacted about helicopter transfers.

Virgin Australia

There are direct flights from Perth to Busselton Airport three times per week: http://www.virginaustralia.com/au/en/skywest/. Please note that upon arriving at Busselton airport, it is approximately a 30 minute drive to Pullman Bunker Bay Resort and to Smiths Beach Resort.

Private Jet Transfer

Perth to Margaret River in 25 minutes? That’s all it will take if you fly in your own state of the art jet. No check-in queue, no security screening. Relax in the private lounge before boarding, and then soar above the clouds at 20,000 ft. to Australia’s South-West. You will be collected on arrival and chauffeured to your hotel. This is the ultimate in luxury, and by far the most convenient way to reach the Cape to Cape track. The private jet seats five passengers plus luggage (subject to weight restrictions). Price on application. Note – at the time of booking your walk, you will have the option of requesting to be contacted about this option, or feel free to contact us about this option prior to or after making your booking.
