We continue to our accommodation to enjoy sundowners, followed by a chef prepared dinner.

Day 2 | Walk the Yorke trail / Ethel Wreck / West Cape Lighthouse

This morning, after breakfast, we follow the Walk The Yorke trail to Stenhouse Bay. Distance of approximately 10km.

This walk will be along a variety of beach, coastal trail and quiet streets. The views along this trail in places are stunning and show the rugged coastline of Dhilba Guuranda – Innes National Park.

Once at Stenhouse Bay we will enjoy a picnic lunch before hopping on our comfortable transport and visiting some amazing sites. We will do a few short walks to sites such as Ethel Wreck, West Cape Lighthouse or a 3km beach walk along a surf beach, for those who love to hear pounding surf. We might meet a few emus along the way if we are lucky today!

We return to our accommodation for sundowners and dinner.
