  • We almost heckin died, we did the ghost trail with only one bottle of water each and we only lasted about a third of the way before we considered calling the ranger to come save us. We did it in the e...  more »

  • Here you can see a very large number of wild kangaroos, as well as all kinds of beautiful birds. The tree-lined, cool trail is not too tired to walk here. Parking is plentiful. Recommended to go in the evening, because the kangaroo is nocturnal animals oh!

  • Quite a bit to explore if you want to wander around the campsite and caves areas. The cave walks would be more interesting for non-history buffs if they had a 15min non-seminar option, but the rest of the park more than makes up for the lengthy talks in the cave walk. Plenty of opportunities to see kangaroos, sometimes in little families and sometimes in huge packs. A koala viewing area. Some gardens. And most importantly a relaxing park area surrounding a lake, with a small chocolate store that does decent coffee too. I’m yet to try the walk/a jog around the lake, but that promises to be a jungle-exploring-like adventure!
  • Great place to take a young family. Plenty to keep everyone occupied for a whole day. Koala feeding was interesting to see. The caves are a must do experience. The inn has a great atmosphere and friendly staff. Only downside was the cafe did not have good coffee. If helpful 👍
  • Yanchep National Park is a nice place to bring family visiting from other areas, especially if they haven't had the chance to see kangaroos or koalas. My boyfriend and I went once for a hike and weren't really impressed with the trail we chose with there not being much to see along the way. We ended up turning around after a couple hours disappointed. We did however go another day to catch a tour of a cave and we enjoyed it very much. The tour guide was very informative and kept the crown engaged with his sense or humor. We will be back to try out some of the other trails they have hoping that they are a bit more intriguing, but also just to enjoy the peaceful scenery.
  • It's a great place for a picnic with family and friends. A good view and relaxing nuance. Not too far from Perth, just about 50kms, so you won't spend time on the road too long. There are plenty of BBQ, so bring your own supply: food & water - or you enjoy the restaurant's meals. The entry fee is $13 per vehicle - well worth fee. You can do walking from the shortest distance: 2Km or do exploring Crystal Cave which costs you $15/adult or $37.5/family (2 adults, 2 children). I'd definitely be back for another picnic or do camping.
  • We came here on the Labour Day public holiday expecting it to be crowded but it wasn't bad, with lots of lovely grass and shade plus the view of the lake. It was a hot day and we wanted shade for our picnic lunch on the way to the beach later in the day when it cooled down a bit. The only problem we had was the many ducks and other birds leaving poo everywhere. We only stayed for lunch and didn't visit the other attractions.
