About this hike
This beautiful hike along the coast of Cape Le Grand National Park is a fantastic overnight adventure for intermediate walkers. With some of the best views you can experience from a hike in Western Australia, this hike is certainly worth the trek no matter how far you must travel to experience this little place of magic.
