Yallingup Beach Holiday Park

Thursday, December 13, 2007

Yallingup Beach Holiday Park enjoys a wonderful waterfront location with views over Yallingup Bay. It is opposite a safe swimming lagoon and fishing beach and the famous Yallingup surf break. An added bonus is there's every chance you will see whales and dolphins rollicking in the Indian Ocean.

A strong family focus is enjoyed at the park, with accommodation to fit the budget. There are ensuite cabins, standard cabins and plenty of grassed van and tent sites. Cabins are equipped with cutlery, crockery, television, microwave or gas burner, refrigerator and cooking utensils.

For campers there are three male and female sections with instant hot water. There are separate, private facilities equipped for the disabled. There are two laundries.

The park has a playground and two barbecue areas with tables and chairs.

An on-site shop makes it easy to stock up on things such as grocery items, ice, bait, tackle, petrol and sweet treats.

There's loads to do in the area — fish from a beach, rocks or boat for herring, skippy, tailor and whiting. Between April and July there's a salmon run as huge schools migrate up the coast.

Surf the break with Malibus, short boards, wave skis or boogie boards. Check it all out on their surfcam page. It is the only internet camera in the south west.

The sunken WWII warship HMAS Swan has become an internationally recognised prime dive wreck, and bookings can be made at Reception.

The Ngilgi Cave is nearby, and everyone enjoys the Ghost Trail walk to the cave from the park.

The area is well known for its excellent wine, and there are many vineyards within half an hour of the park. Almost all have cellar door sales and cafes, so arm yourself with a map and explore the Margaret River region.

While you're there, visit the chocolate and cheese factories, the ice cream shop and maybe hire a horse for a ride.

Sam Hansen, born and bred in Yallingup, owns and operates the Yallingup Surf School. Anyone from six years of age can learn, and in summer months there are up to 10 instructors, all committed to the community's strong love of the surf.
