"Welcome to Caves..."

Hi, my name is Dave Hughes and as of November 2010, I was appointed as the manager of the park and I would like to introduce myself to existing patrons and welcome new clients to Caves Caravan Park.

I have managed a number of very different ventures, ranging from Landscape Gardening / Commercial fishing / Computer retail / Kimberley College of Tafe, Lecturer to a Pearl Farm Manager in Broome over the past years.

I would like to personally invite you to experience the Yallingup "feeling", based from an ideal location, a peaceful environment set in pristine natural bush land where guests can recover from holiday activities or just relax and enjoy the ambience here.
The park is unique as it is nestled in 4 ha of natural bush land but only a short 500 metre stroll to the white sands and crystal clear waters of Yallingup Lagoon

Improvements to date :

In the time I have been manager, the biggest issue is the 10pm - 7am quiet time, as such I have instigated a security bond or a contract between a guest and management that during their stay with us, a guest will to behave responsibly and act in a considerate way to other guests, in line with the parks guidelines on noise levels.

The park has a "zero tolerance" approach to guests who breach the parks guidelines on noise at any time but in particular after 10:00 pm, any anti social or irresponsible behaviour will result in immediate eviction and loss of all monies including the security bond.

Future Plans
Regular patrons should look forward to more improvements at the park, making your stay here more relaxing and enjoyable.

I would like to thank all patrons who have assisted me with suggestions and provided me with the history of "Caves" and I look forward to seeing you all again on your next holiday.

Dave Hughes
