After just under of month in Java (Indonesia) I went to my home town (Perth, Western Australia) for a few weeks to attend my cousins wedding.

It was held a few hours drive south at the Woodstone Cottages so we stayed there for a few nights.

On the day before the wedding I went with a couple of my cousins and their kids to go “rock-climbing” at Canal Rocks.

Cost(s): Free.

Address: Canal Rocks Rd, Yallingup, Busselton WA 6280, Australia.

Canal Rocks Review, Dunsborough

Despite growing up near the area I had never heard of Canal Rocks before. My cousin described it to me as rock-climbing so I imagined it to be bouldering on vertical faces. I was mistaken about this.

Lake on the property at the Woodstone Cottages.

This was the first time I have been out of a tropical country to non-summer weather in over four years and it was pretty windy near the coast. Despite the chill, Canal Rocks was pretty nice.

It had some spectacular scenery and reminded me a lot of when I walked the Bibbulmun Track some years ago, mostly because I’m pretty sure the track went straight through the area.

There’s a boardwalk you can go along and if you don’t mind a bit of rock-hopping you can go a bit further. The kids loved it (as did I) and it was great to spend some time with them since I usually only visit once a year, if that.

A couple of days later we also made a short visit to Meelup Beach.

How to Get to Canal Rocks in Yallingup

Canal Rocks is just south-west of Smiths Beach in Yallingup. I think the only way to get there is with private transport. Maybe you can take a tour there from a nearby town/city such as Dunsborough, Busselton, or Perth.

From Perth it is about a 3 and a half hour drive.

    Canal Rocks seems like an awesome travel destination, Bert! When’s the best time of year to explore and hike there?

      Just a guess but probably during Australia’s Autumn or Spring would be the best time to go.
