Pemberton to Yallingup
Holy hell, we’ve got a wedding to go to!
We roll on through pretty farms and vineyards to Nannup with its quaint timber shops and old verandahs. I wish we had more time to explore it. Margaret River township is bigger than when we were last here a few years ago and it is bustling.
And then we’re in Yallingup, the end of this leg. The Caves Caravan Park overlooks the distant sparkling Indian Ocean. Across the road there is a cute little wooden shop selling kugelhopf cakes….yum. There’s a jumping post office that is really a coffee shop in disguise, they do that a lot over here. But the piece de resistance is the classic old 1920’s Caves Hotel set in manicured lawns and gardens and now home to the young and trendy and the surfing population. It’s perfect for a celebratory drink on arrival on the west coast.
