Yallingup Caravan Park, WA

Day 55 – 12th April 2011
Yallingup Caravan Park, WA

Early morning start with a cab at 6.30am to Dunsborough. Started walking the Meelup Walking Trail by 7am and enjoyed a nice sunrise. Along the way to Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse we passed by Curtis Bay, Castle Rock, Eagle Bay, Rocky Point and Bunker Bay (good beach to learn to surf). Near Curtis Bay we saw a kanagaroo (yeah!) and a pot of dolphins. From the lighthouse we continued on to Yallingup via the Cape to Cape Trail. Had lunch at Sugarloaf beach, continued on passed Three Bears (famous surfers beach) and then onto Yallingup for a refreshing swim to finish the day. In total we walked 29km which took about 9hrs (rested for about 1hr when we had breaks and a swim at Bunker Bay). Personally we preferred the other Cape to Cape walk (Day 47 - Cape Leeuwin to Hamelin Bay) as that walk was more interesting with changing landscape and also more challenging, but this was still worthwhile.

Cape to Cape - we think this looks like a bear - not sure if this has anything to do with the surf beach about 1km up the coast called 'the three bears'
