Who we are
We are a West Australian owned and operated business that loves the Margaret River region and the kind of escape it offers – time to recharge, get back to nature and indulge in a touch of luxury. We love Margaret River for its quality local food and wine, and the stunning beauty of its coast-line, native bush and karri forest, and we showcase the lot on our Margaret River Cape to Cape Walk. Our aim is simply to offer the best tours in Australia with a focus on luxury Australian walking holidays.
How our walks are different
Walk into Luxury is proud to be recognised as a leading walking tour operator with our Margaret River Cape to Cape Walk named a Great Walk of Australia in 2016 (one of 13 signature collection walks). We are proud to be recognised among the best luxury walks in Australia.
Our Cape to Cape Walks are all-inclusive. Although this is not unique in itself, the standard of our inclusions are. Think exclusive dining experiences with matched wines, private plunge pool villa accommodation and select local wines stocked in your private mini-bar. Private experiences like our clifftop drinks and private didgeridoo performance afterhours at Ngilgi Cave are also included. We even provide a custom-made insulated backpack and bottle. It’s all been thought of and it’s all included.
Walking is a great part of a Walk into Luxury, but it is not all there is to it. Our guests enjoy spectacular walks of between three and five hours each day, and then have time in the afternoon to enjoy the pristine beaches and food and wine of the Margaret River region. There is also time to relax in your oceanfront luxury accommodation – it is meant to be a holiday after all!
We offer a mix of group time and time to relax away from the group on our small group walk. The Margaret River Cape to Cape Walk includes a private dinner in your luxury villa one evening, and time to relax in the afternoons on returning from that day’s walk. But if group walks are just really not your thing, you can always check out our private walking tour options at our home-site – www.walkintoluxury.com.au.
Our luxury accommodation in Margaret River is simply second to none. You will sleep every night in a wonderfully comfortable king size bed with your own ensuite bathroom overlooking a private garden. Your spacious lounge room includes an eco-fire place, panoramic ocean views and overlooks your private plunge pool and villa terrace. You deserve to experience this kind of luxury once in your life, so let us spoil you.
We believe in giving back to the region and looking after the pristine environment we operate in, so we donate a portion of profits from our walks towards caring for the track and supporting worthy West Australian charities through fundraising hikes and other activities.
