Yallingup

Declared Number One Top Town by Australian Traveller

Loved for its laidback beach town vibes set alongside some of Australia’s most luxurious accommodation and experiences, there are plenty of things to do in Yallingup.

 

Splendidly nestled on a ridge, surrounded by the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park with spectacular views out to the Indian Ocean, it’s easy to see why Australian Traveller magazine’s 100 Best Towns in Australia places the Margaret River Region’s spectacular town of Yallingup in the top spot, ahead of long-time frontrunners Noosa (Qld) and Byron Bay (NSW).

It has bred some of the world’s greatest surfers and you’ll soon see why with a visit to Yallingup Beach, Smiths Beach and Injidup. They’re awesome places to watch the surf (and the surfers!). The tranquil crystal clear lagoon at Yallingup Beach is lovely for snorkelling and swimming, and is one of the main attractions. And a swim is especially deserved if you’ve explored a bit further along the pristine white sandy beach to the rugged cliffs or on the Cape to Cape Track.

The landscape is so inspiring that an arts precinct, with more galleries than anywhere else in the Margaret River Region, has developed just off Caves Road.

An ancient cave gives a glimpse into the world beneath, where the geological formations are an exquisite natural display.

The food and wine is fantastic and there’s plenty of variety with restaurants and cafes, premium wineries, pub or burger bar.

And there are a great range of places to stay. Choose from luxurious romantic resorts, lodges and private retreats with day spas to places that are great for family and friends with holiday parks, hotel and apartment style accommodation.
