Information

Yanchep National Park is a large park (2,799 hectares), situated 48 km north of Perth, on the Wanneroo - Lancelin Road. The Park contains seven vegetation communities, four wetlands that have had little modification, and over 1000 caves, all of which provide a wide range of habitats for a variety of fauna. It is an important conservation area on the Swan Coastal Plain.

Nestled in tuart and banksia woodlands, the park is home to many different water and bush birds including grebes, swans, pelicans, cormorants, egrets, kingfishers, parrots, wrens and honeyeaters. Endangered Carnaby's cockatoos are a spectacular daily sight. Western Grey kangaroos are commonly seen on the walk trails or grazing on the lawns and golf course.

Yanchep National Park has many visitor facilities and great walking opportunities abound. There are nine established walk trails including the more challenging Ghosthouse Walk.

Over 250 000 visitors per year visit Yanchep National Park, the highest number of visitors to any single area of a national park in the State. Visitors can participate in many activities including rowing on Loch McNess, picnicking and walking along the nature trails.
