New hiking experience blends eco with luxury

Visitors to the Margaret River Region can now experience the ultimate blend of luxury and eco tourism, with the launch of new luxury hiking tourism product 'Walk into Luxury'. 

Walk into Luxury offers all-inclusive walks of the Margaret River Region's spectacular Cape to Cape Track, coupled with exclusive luxury accommodation and outstanding local food and wine experiences.

Voted as one of Australia's top ten tracks by National Geographic, the Cape to Cape Track is a spectacular and varied section of coastline running from Cape Naturaliste (near Yallingup) past Margaret River to Cape Leeuwin in the South-West corner of Western Australia. The terrain includes pristine beaches, limestone cliffs and granite boulders, coastal bushland and the majestic Boranup Karri forest.

The walk packages range from four days for those chasing a high-impact short break, to a more leisurely eight day experience.

Walk into Luxury owner Nikki King advised that the product was designed to allow people to experience the beautiful Cape to Cape Track in style.

"We identified a niche for people wanting to experience the spectacular beauty of the Cape to Cape walk trail, but aren't necessarily keen on camping or 'roughing it'", said Ms King.

"Our packages include luxury accommodation, post-walk massages, daily in-villa canap├ęs and wines, exclusive dining and wine tasting experiences at renowned wineries and restaurants - it really is a feast for the senses," she said.

Augusta Margaret River Tourism Chief Executive Officer Pip Close said she thought a luxury hiking product was a fantastic idea.

"The Margaret River Region boasts a diverse array of natural attractions, and the Cape to Cape Track certainly showcases our rugged coastline, beautiful wildflowers, unspoiled beaches, towering karri forests and wonderful native flora and fauna," said Ms Close.

"To be able to experience the fresh air and stunning scenery of the Cape to Cape Track, then return to your luxury spa villa and enjoy a glass of top-quality Margaret River wine or a local craft beer and some freshly prepared canapes - what an iconic Margaret River experience!" said Ms Close.

Walk into Luxury offers private walks year-round with no minimum numbers. Private guides are available or guests can elect to walk self-guided with all maps, safety gear and a monitored GPS device.

Bookings are now being taken for walks commencing mid-August 2014. Introductory pricing is available for all walks booked by 30 September 2014.
