Day One:  Cape Naturaliste to Yallingup (13km) : We are transported out to Cape Naturaliste and follow the boardwalk along the coast with incredible views to Sugarloaf Rock.  From there the path is rough and follows the edge of the cliff tops with expansive views.   As we get closer to Yallingup the track goes inland on a sandy 4wd track coming out at the top of Yallingup Beach.
Day Two: Yallingup to Moses Rock Campsite: We walk from our campsite, along the cliff tops and descend to walk Smiths Beach. We then ascend between giant granite marbles with panoramic views over the ocean, enjoy a snack stop at a lookout with stunning views over picturesque Canal Rocks and then descend to the beach at surfing mecca Injidup. We ascend over the ridge, descend and climb to finally reach our campsite set under coastal tee trees. A short walk takes you to the cliff top for sunset.
(20km in total for 4 day Gold, 15km for 3 day teens as we can take a taxi out to the end of Smiths Beach).
Day Three: Moses Rock to Gracetown (15km)to Ellensbrook  (7km) 
We walk along the coast with views over the ocean, cross the little Wilyabrup Brook on the beach and ascend to Wilyabrup Sea Cliffs where we often see rock climbing and abseiling. We stop at the Gracetown café for lunch. The Gold teens continue following the low coastline to the historic Ellensbrook Homestead.  It is only a short distance now, past Meekadarabee Falls to our campsite beside Ellens Brook.
Day Four: Ellensbrook to Prevelly (14km)  The track meanders south on sandy tracks to come out on the isolated coves of Gnoocardup and the bay of Kilcarnup. We meander along the coast ascend the last dune to arrive at the Margaret River mouth and the small settlement of Prevelly.
