Escape to Yallingup holiday homes to rent

Cute and understated, the little town of Yallingup doesn't make a big song and dance about being a top vacation destination because it doesn't have to. Overlooking the Indian Ocean on one of the loveliest stretches of the Western Australia coast, Yallingup vacation rentals put you a hop and a skip away from fantastic surf beaches, top-notch hiking trails and a national park full of natural wonders like limestone caves and coastal rock formations. And that's before we get on to the delicious locavore dining and plentiful wineries in the surrounding area. Let's raise a glass to that, eh?

Weather

Local weather for your stay in Yallingup holiday homes

Forget what you've heard about the sun in Western Australia being hot enough to fry an egg. Yallingup's location on the south west coast means it's actually got a climate more akin to the Mediterranean. Summers are hot and pretty dry, especially at the height of the season in January and February, though at least you've usually got a good old sea breeze to take the edge off. While winters do tend to be a bit cooler and wetter, the rain's still not too bad, and folk in Yallingup are spared the torrential downpours that they sometimes get further north.

Natural highlights

Because who plants wheat when you could plant wine?

Yallingup's way down in the fertile southwestern corner of Western Australia – Oz's biggest state. This section of the coast is a bit of a jewel in the state crown, thanks to its rocky coastal formations, sandy beaches and intriguing limestone caverns. Much of the area is protected as part of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park – a 120-kilometre playground of dunes, scrubland and forest that's home to a veritable Noah's Ark of animal life including emus, rock parrots, kangaroos and wallabies. Beyond the boundaries of the national park, you'll see the locals are putting that fertile ground to good use with endless vineyards.
