Majestically nestled on a ridge and framed by the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, Yallingup is a small seaside town that’s bred the world’s most avid surfers. You can watch them challenge the swells and barrels of the Indian Ocean from the award winning grassed playground area, shaded barbeque lawns, various lookouts or the soft white sandy shore. The tranquil crystal-clear lagoon at Yallingup Beach is a favoured spot for snorkelling and swimming – perfect for a cool down after a trek along the rugged cliffs that look out to the nearby Cape to Cape Track.
Yallingup is home to the Ngilgi Cave, where a stroll along extensive boardwalks comes with stunning views of stalactites, stalagmites and helictites. Yallingup is also where artisans set up galleries, studios and craft workshops. Combined with the spectacular food, wine and craft beer, it’s no wonder Yallingup was named The Best Town in Australia by Australian Traveller magazine in 2019.
