Yallingup

Yallingup is a coastal settlement to the south of Cape Naturaliste and is some 266 kms south of Perth. Caves in the area were discovered in 1899. The historic Caves House first opened in 1903 and has since undergone many extensions and changes. The name Yallingup is of Aboriginal origin. This area is world renowned for spectacular surfing conditions. Local tourism is fed by the surfing along with fishing, the caves, rock formations and the beaches
