Caves House will celebrate the official registration of the heritage-listed gardens this weekend in a Mad Hatter-style garden party.

The 4.5ha garden was created in 1903 and has become a fixture in Yallingup, along with the heritage-listed building.

Jayne Pendal, from Caves House, said it was an exciting announcement for the venue. "We put the application in a while ago and only now have we received the registration," she said.

"It's been a long process but we are excited about the announcement and are looking forward to celebrating that on Sunday."

The garden is between Caves House and Yallingup Beach and includes three tiers and a cricket pitch at the bottom.

Caves House will unveil a plaque declaring the gardens' heritage-listed status on Sunday.

A tea party including a 40-piece orchestra, acts from the drama school, face painting and games will feature in the celebration.

The tea party starts at 11am. Tickets are $25 for adults and $15 for children.

To reserve tickets call Caves House on 9750 1888.
