Explore Yanchep National Park
You will have to pay a separate entry fee to Yanchep National Park to access Trees Adventure (on Ghost House Road, Yanchep) so why not spend the rest of the day exploring the park’s spectacular walking trails, limestone caves and heritage-listed buildings? Keep your eye out for western gray kangaroos and a wide range of birdlife enjoying the park’s wetlands!
Grab your torch and explore Crystal Cave
Have you seen the stalactites, stalagmites, helictites, flowstones, columns and shawls at the most well-known cave in the Yanchep National Park? Don’t worry if you can’t identify or pronounce any of these stunning natural wonders as entry includes a 45 minute, guided-tour.
You can tour Crystal Cave every day of the year, thanks to the cave’s constant temperature, but you will need to grab a ticket from the Mc Ness Visior Centre about 15 minutes before your tour time.
Yanchep Lagoon and Beach
Beach lovers travel from far and wide to enjoy the crystal clear waters and family-friendly atmosphere of the Yanchep Lagoon and Beach on Brazier Road. Grab a coffee at the local café or pack a picnic lunch. Don’t forget to bring your snorkel and fishing rod as the area is well known for these pursuits.
A day on the green
If you love a spot of golf and enjoy a stroll along a picturesque green, why not book in a round or two at the Yanchep Golf Club or Sun City Country Club? See their websites for fees and opening hours.
