Your beautiful glamp site is completely private, and comes stocked with only the best artisan produce from the region. This pop-up winter experience is only open for the season, so don’t delay in getting that annual leave approved.

Yallingup Maze is bigger, better and easier to get lost in. Grab a raincoat and head on in for a fully immersive adventure. The maze itself is made of timber, with interlinking bridges, stairs and winding passageways. It’s pram and wheelchair friendly, and takes around thirty minutes to finish. Once you’re out, head to the Puzzle Café to refuel, then buy a puzzle for a cosy night in. There’s also a bouncy castle to distract the kids while you enjoy a coffee and revel in your maze success.
