About Wardanup Trail, Yallingup
This loop walk starts at Rabbit Hill car park at Yallingup and can also be accessed below Caves House. If you head north from Rabbit Hill the trail goes along the cliff line through coastal heath vegetation with sweeping views south across Yallingup township and north along the rugged coastline to Sugarloaf Rock.
The trail climbs up over Wardanup Hill through coastal peppermint forest then down to Ngilgi Cave. The trail then descends into the valley of Yallingup Brook and onto Yallingup township, passing the spectacular Yallingup reef and onto the beach where you walk along the sand before climbing back up the stairs to Rabbit Hill car park.
This loop trail is well defined with orange markers to guide you along the way.
