This was an epic trip that surpassed our expectations in every way. The cliff-hugging scenery was breathtaking and the lodge life was absolute luxury. Our guides, Maddie and James were great people who between them had so much knowledge about the local flora and fauna as well as the area history and shared great stories of past times. We bonded very quickly and felt well looked after in every way, safe and completely trusted that we were in good hands. This was our first serious hiking trip and fortunately my husband and I did some training in preparation to ensure we enjoyed the hike. We are mid-50's, both gym fit and walk the dog, but we still did our own training hikes with weighted packs and steep terrain - this placed us well compared to some others in our group who were not walk-fit and suffered sore knees and leg muscles. We travelled at end Feb/early March and experienced two mild weather days of around 13C (perfect for hiking). Our third day was freezing with hail, gale force winds and rain yet this somehow added to the experience. The weather is very changeable in this part of the world so you need to expect contrasts. For us, the wet weather meant lodge shoes were essential - getting from the common lounge area to our rooms along the open-sided decking when there was sideways rain meant there were no dry spots to walk along. The packing list was spot-on. The mist style showers worked well but I did not feel I could wash my hair so was happy to wear my cap! Food was exceptional. Lodge hosts were marvelous and amazing cooks. Hospitality warm and friendly at every step of the booking, transfers etc. Cannot fault! This as the posh way to do Three Capes Walk and was worth every penny however you will be spoilt for life because no other holiday will ever come close! Just do it!!!

Other reviews talk about the scenery, lodges, food and wine, do here is some other advice for this wonderful walk. The backpacks on offer from TWC are heavy, so if you are going to do more walks, invest in a light weight backpack of your own. There are huge numbers of steps on the last day. There were lots of steep stone steps on the first climb, with leeches after rain, consequently we couldn’t stop for a breather, so plan to put “step work” into your exercise regime before you go. Even in Summer it may be cold, wet and windy, so their packing requirements are correct, except skip the lodge shoes as they are not needed- socks will do. Ditto the swimsuit unless you plan a dip in their cold plunge bath or a swim on the final day. How much you enjoy the walk will be weather dependent, hot weather will make it harder, cold very easy to cope with.

I’m not going to repeat what others have already said, but maybe give some advice. You will need everything on the list they give you. Except a head torch perhaps. Gaitors are optional but be warned, there are snakes in the area. Gaitors keep you safe. You will need to drink 2 litres of water a day. Don’t think a one litre bottle of water is enough. Don’t assume you won’t be sharing unless you have paid the single supplement. You can ask the guides on the departure day if there is certain other items you should bring or not, as you will pack your bags as a group. You need to be vaguely fit for this one. If you are not, try something easier like bay of fires of Bruny island. We had a couple on our trek who were clearly unfit and they really struggled.

My wife and I were lucky to escape Sydney before Christmas to complete the Three Capes Lodge Walk. We could not have asked for a better experience. The walk is the equal of the best hikes we have completed in NZ and Europe. The scenery is stunning and the walk challenging enough to be satisfying without being impossible for those with average walking fitness. The young guides and lodge staff were excellent - energetic and fun but responsive to the needs of a diverse group. This is not a cheap getaway but we found it to be worth the money to be in a remote and stunning part of Australia sampling the best local food and wine and warm and dry at night!.

This was a wonderful walk. The tracks were really good - hard but not too hard, the lodges amazing and the guides and lodge hosts were excellent. This would be a good walk for someone new to bushwalking.
