Woodlands Walk Trail, Yanchep NP


This 2.6 kilometre walk is ideal for anyone who would like a “taste” of the Yanchep National Park, not too hard but good enough to see and appreciate the local habitat. It is especially great for families with children, starting from the McNess House Visitor Centre.

About the Trail

This 2.6 km walktrail heads south from the McNess House Visitor Centre and is a real little treasure of Yanchep National Park. Dwindling through coastal woodlands, which support a diverse range of trees including banksia, tuart, marri, stunted jarrah, sheoak and small pockets of paperbark, this walk is ideal for anyone who would like a "taste" of the local wildlife. During spring, kangaroo paw and cats paw are in flower along with a lovely display of jacksonias, acacias, hoveas, hardenbergias etc and if you look closely will see an array of orchid species including spider orchids, donkey orchids and purple enamels.  You most likely will see native birds and parrots, lizards and other small animals while on the walk.  Kangaroos may be in the area seeking shade during the heat of the day.
