Yallingup 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.
Tourism in Yallingup started well over 100 years ago after its caves were discovered by European settlers in 1899.
Originally named by the settlers as Yallingup Cave, the cave was renamed Ngilgi Cave to acknowledge the Aboriginal dreaming story attached to the cave. The story is part of the heritage of the Wardandi people who are the traditional custodians of the caves in the region.
Yallingup was first surfed around the late 1950’s and from that point in time surfers have come from near and far to surf the powerful wave.
