Keen bushwalker Abbey Freer who won our comp to walk WA’s Cape To Cape Track with Cape to Cape Explorer Tours has described her experience as “mind-blowing”.

The 27-year-old outdoors enthusiast from Adelaide won an all-expenses-paid trip for two with Cape To Cape Explorer Tours. That included flights, transfers and Cape to Cape Explorer Tours’ guided, 8-day, end-to-end hiking experience, covering the 135km distance on Margaret River’s best hike.

Also included were gourmet meals and trail lunches. And accomodation at the 3.5 star SurfPoint Resort – the perfect hiking base in the middle of the track and a stone’s throw from some of Margaret River’s best beaches.

Abbey was joined by her dad Kym. And the pair hiked the Cape to Cape in March 2020. Now home in Adelaide, Great Walks caught up with Abbey recently to get her thoughts on the trip.

“My experiences and time spent there feel like they’ve made imprints deep into my skin for life,” she says. “I constantly catch myself unconsciously recalling the wondrous region and reliving every second of our tour. All joyous and treasured.”

Abbey describes the Cape To Cape Explorer Tours guides as a huge source of “inspiration for living a life full of purpose, passion and authenticity”.

“I came away feeling more connected to the land. From being educated about the aboriginal tribes in which this region belongs, their history and traditional ways of living. To the unique flora and fauna of the Margaret River region."

“Overall, we shared expertly-curated hours under the sun in the most beautiful of landscapes. Were treated with local knowledge. And all while feeling like royalty thanks to Cape To Cape Moveable Feast (our in-house catering company) keeping our tummies happy!”
