Information

Perry's Paddock is a registered heritage site in suburban Perth located in the Yellagonga Regional Park accessible by car from Ocean Reef Road.

Perry's Paddock is notable because it is the location of Wanneroo's first land grant, surveyed in 1838. The Paddock holds two structures that are easily seen from the side of the Ocean Reef Road and the visitor carpark.

These pictures show Perry's Cottage, built around 1850. Nearby is Perry's Bunkhouse. Both are situated in a delightful paddock that was once the site for picnic races and shenanigans in the 1920's. A photo of the signboard here tells the story.

The winding paved trails through the area connect cyclists & walkers with nearby Beenyup Swamp and through to Woodvale Drive. Information signboards help tell the history of the area. DEC manages the Yellagonga Regional Park in collaboration with the City of Joondalup and the City of Wanneroo. Yellagonga Regional Park is home to several volunteer groups. Contact DEC on 9219 9290 to find out more about volunteering in the park.
