Trail Network: Yanchep National Park

Yanchep National Park has nine walk trails (8 listed here) designed to suit a variety of age groups, interests and fitness abilities. They range from short trails of 500m to challenging trails up to 52km. Each trail has been selected to showcase the unique biodiversity of the northern Swan Coastal Plain.See collapsed cave systems, gorges, pristine coastal wetlands, or haunted historic remains. Choose a walk trail to suit your fitness level and time frame. 

Yanchep National Park is the perfect place to experience a true Aussie environment in a pristine, national park. Visitors can experience Aboriginal culture (subject to availability), participate in a cave tour and admire heritage architecture, Australian flora and fauna including kangaroos and koalas, walk along the park's trails, enjoy a picnic in the natural surrounds or dine at one of the park's dining facilities. 

Koalas are fussy eaters and only eat certain types of eucalyptus leaves.  They are not native to Western Australia and Yanchep is one of the few places you can see them.  Western Grey Kangaroos are abundent and are easily seen in the morning or late afternoon.  During hot days you'll find them in the shade.

Crystal Cave is open daily for tours.
