South Yunderup is located within a scenic network of canals at the mouth of the Murray River.
This has made South Yunderup a popular retirement dwelling for many Western Australian residents due to its tranquility and seclusion. However, there are a significant number of large subdivisions being developed around the township, including the Austin Cove development by Satterley.
The Yunderup Sport and Recreation Club is situated on the corner of Delta Drive & South Yunderup Road and has approximately 500 members. Tennis, bowls, darts and other sporting and social activities are available.
