Quenda Trail Yallingup

Quenda Trail

Leeuwin-naturaliste National Park

Directions - Located south of Yallingup, to reach the start of the Quenda Trail take Yallingup Beach Road out of town, turning right onto Caves Road. Follow this until you reach the turnoff for Canal Rocks Road where Cape Lavender is located on the corner. Follow this up the hill and turn right onto Smiths Beach Road, following it down the hill to the car park that's located on the bend in the road. The trail head for the Quenda Trail is located on the footpath leading to Smith's Beach. 

Note - The section between Yallingup Beach Road in the north and the top of the main part of Smith's Beach is subject to an annual closure between July and October due to erosion issues. Please be aware that if the closure is in place, you'll have to return back via the inland dunes. 

The Hike - Yallingup and the northern parts of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park are home to a number of enjoyable day hikes, along with the Cape to Cape Track running right through it. Having hiked most of them, there were still three that I had not had the pleasure of walking for just that trail alone. As part of a four day trails trip in peak wildflowers season, I half day visit to Yallingup was on the cards to check out the Quenda Trail, along with the Wadarnup Trail later in the afternoon.
