Wild and Woods Cafe
Albert and Nikola
If you happen to come down south in the summertime, enjoy a fruity and fabulous acai bowl from Albert & Nikola.
Make sure to grab your New Era 940 NY Cap - the venue is small but it’s outside seating options make it the perfect way to start your day in the warmer weather!
Yallingup Coffee Roasting Company
If coffee is your jam, you can’t go past Yallingup Coffee Roasting Company.
This Dunsborough establishment has been owned and operated by Tam and Craig for 18 years and they serve the most decadent brownies in town, plus an iconic childhood favourite - smiley face cookies!
The Yallingup Coffee Roasting Company is located at the back of our Hyperluxe Dunsborough store and like Albert & Nikola, has a big grassed area where dogs are always welcome!
Put on your Le Specs and sit with a strong coffee as you pat and play with the cafe pup, Eddy!
Where to Work Out
The Movement Fitness
If you want to stay on top of your training, or just work off that extra cheese and wine… look no further than The Movement Fitness.
Located in Dunsborough, this functional training centre is community-based and focused on getting you moving with expert guidance, no matter what your fitness level is.
Whether you’re a beginner or an athlete, the coaches will assist you through the classes to ensure you are achieving your personal best in a supportive environment.
So make sure to throw your Lilybod leggings when packing for your next escape...and put them to the test instead of just wearing them on the morning coffee run!
Yoga South West
Dunsborough is the perfect place to head with some girlfriends for some downtime...and what better way to do that then unwind with a yoga session.
Centre yourself and get some namaste in your life whilst practising yoga at either a drop-in session or book in advance for an active yoga retreat at Yoga South West!
Leave the stress of the big city behind as you improve your flexibility, focus on your breath and take some time just for you.
Yallingup Surf School
The South West is known for its epic swell and plays host to various international surf competitions annually.
Although the waves that the professionals surf are something that we will gladly leave to them, learn how to surf some green waves with Yallingup Surf School.
Surfing will get you outside, in the water and loving the summer sun as you glide along and learn skills that will have you catching barrels in no time!
Remember to bring your Sun Bum Spray and reapply to ensure you don’t get burnt whilst out riding waves!
