Known as Perth's natural and cultural meeting place, Yanchep National Park offers daily tours of Crystal Cave, and Aboriginal cultural experience activities available on weekends.
Yanchep, located approximately 45 minutes north of Perth’s city centre, is one of the State’s oldest national parks. Nestled in tuart and banksia woodlands, the park is home to a host of fauna and flora including kangaroos, koalas, the endangered Carnaby’s black cockatoos and many different water and bush birds.
Picnic facilities and free gas barbecues located throughout the park offer visitors an opportunity to relax and enjoy the tranquil setting. McNess House Visitor Centre is the perfect place to get more information about the national park, book a cave tour or Aboriginal Experience activity and select that perfect memento from a range of quality mostly Australian and locally made products.
Yanchep National park is famous for its caves, with more than 600 documented. Open daily for guided tours, Crystal Cave enables visitors to see stalagmites and stalactites and other amazing underground decorations.
On weekends, visit the Wangi Mia to see the Aboriginal Experience cultural activity. Here visitors have the opportunity to interact with our Indigenous staff, participate in cultural activities and learn a little bit more about the diversity of traditional Aboriginal culture. Our cultural activities engage the audience, encourage participation, inform, entertain, and share the richness of Australian Aboriginal culture in a real Aboriginal experience.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you may like to choose from nine interesting walk trails ranging in length from 500 metres to 55 kilometres. Along the way you will witness spectacular scenery and panoramic views from the sea to the scarp.
Overnight accommodation options are available in the park, and meals are provided by both the Chocolate Drop Tearooms and historic Yanchep Inn.
