Starting from the Rabbit Hill Carpark at the end of Dawson Drive, Yallingup, this walk takes you on a circuit up Wardanup Hill, past Ngilgi Cave and along Yallingup Beach via the Wardanup Trail. A favourite with the locals, this picturesque 6.4 kilometre loop walk encompasses both coastal scenery and shady forest paths. You'll head along the cliff line that will provide you countless panoramic views. Keep an eye out for surfers as well. The trail climbs steeply up over Wardanup Hill through coastal peppermint forest, then heads down to Ngilgi Cave, an amazing Karst cave system with a beautiful array of varied crystal formations enhanced by colourful lighting. The trail then descends into the Yallingup Brook valley and the Yallingup township, passing the spectacular Yallingup reef and onto Yallingup Beach, where you walk along the sand before climbing back up to the Rabbit Hill Carpark. The Wardanup Trail is best suited for moderately experienced hikers due to the changing terrain that includes a sandy beach, dense forest coverage, steep hillsides, cliffs, and coastal rocks. Sturdy walking/hiking boots are recommended to handle the different ground coverings. The trail is open to the public every day, has restroom facilities and resting areas to take in the changing views or just to sit and enjoy a bottle of water and a snack. The loop trail is clearly defined and well signposted, with orange markers to guide you along the way. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
