The contemporary design can be seen to represent "the ocean and its waves, the beaches and track, the land and its contours, the lighthouses" - which are so significant to the track - and to "leave only your footprints".
Over the next few months, Friends of the Cape to Cape Track and Parks and Wildlife staff will replace more than 2500 markers. If you are hiking the track during this time, you will come across both the new and old markers and you can follow either one.
There is also a brand new Cape to Cape Track map which features the entire track on one map! Purchase your copy here today.
