Cape Naturaliste Track is a 4km, grade 2 circuit hike, located in Dunsborough, Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 1hr to complete.

Hike Summary

This easy four kilometre trail is the most westerly loop of the Cape Naturaliste Walk Trail Network and it takes you out nearly to the top of the Cape with spectacular views.

Cape Naturaliste is the northernmost point of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge. Visitors can explore the coastal scenery by taking short walks along the established boaRoad walks and lookouts. To find the Cape Naturaliste Track, follow the main path below the lighthouse buildings and work your way clockwise around the Lighthouse Walk for nearly one kilometre. Turn left (W) on the Whale Lookout Track and left again onto the Cape Naturaliste Track, heading gently downhill towaRoads the ocean. From the Naturaliste Lookout you have a stunning view of the pounding surf along the northwest tip of the Cape. The strange natural blow-out below the lookout known as the “The Other Side of the Moon”” is a striking feature here. The track then winds north and east though a windswept area largely devoid of vegetation. Only bare limestone rock formations remain. Continue for a further 300m through low heath and Rottnest Tea-tree
