Vertex Park (Yera Playground), Yanchep

Located within the new Vertex Estate in Yanchep, there is a small but fantastic little park, especially for kids.

There is a large wooden climbing frame featuring different options to get to the top including a rock wall, wooden steps, ropes and more. There is also a fireman’s pole at the top and kids can have a ball climbing the structure.

Vertex Park is sand based, so perfect for parents and young children to sit in the shade under the climbing structure and do a bit of digging or build a sandcastle.

The play equipment is great, including a double slide, a nest swing, wooden stepping logs, and even drums!

There are two undercover benches and tables plus other benches around the perimeter and a large grass area perfect for a picnic.

Yanchep Lagoon

Yanchep Lagoon is a favourite beach to visit with the kids. Catch it on a good day – when the tide is out and there is an easterly wind – and you will be greeted with crystal clear, calm water.

The reef, situated about 20 metres from the shore, creates a lagoon, shallow with low waves making it an excellent place to swim or snorkel and perfect for introducing children to fishing.

The Yanchep Surf Life Saving Club patrol the beach during summer and there is a large car park across the road as well as a nearby café and toilet block with showers and change rooms.

Check out the lagoon and nearby facilities at Brazier Road, Yanchep.

Yanchep National Park

Yanchep National Park is the perfect place to explore and enjoy some true Australian culture.  There are Aboriginal cultural tours, Crystal Cave tours and even the chance to see kangaroos and koalas!  Though not native to Western Australia, Yanchep has been home to a colony of koalas since 1938.

Visitors can see the koalas from a raised boardwalk view, which is also accessible for wheelchairs.

The national park offers some fantastic walks along the park's trails or there is plenty of space to enjoy a picnic in the natural surrounds or dine at one of the park's cafe facilities.

For those who are keen on adventure you can have a go at navigating your way through the Tuart trees on wobbly wooden bridges, tight ropes, cargo nets and even ziplines!

To get there go to the corner of Beach Road and Indian Ocean Drive.
