We arrived about 4.30 pm to be greeted by several wild kangaroos feeding by the lake. The scenery is lovely and the park was relaxing. We found the koala sanctuary and wandered through and saw quite a few relaxing in the trees. A very worthwhile place to visit.

I hadn't been here for decades but we managed to snag a Sunday when it was around 23 degrees and the flies weren't out and really enjoyed ourselves. The koalas are worth seeing and a walk around the lake can be an adventure for the little ones without being too far to walk. A $12 entry fee is required per... More

Yanchep National Park is great for family outdoor fun. It's a good choice for picnic and BBQ along the lake. There are many walking and hiking trails. While we spotted several kuala and kangaroos in the park, there were not many kangaroos in the areas we visited. To avoid distraction by flies, have an insect repellent handy! It will help.... More

While we were not overly impressed with the town of Yanchep, we LOVED the nearby National Park. Travelling in a self contained motor home, we had heard that you could stay quite cheaply in the park at the Henry White Oval. Once though the oval's entry chain, we were greeted by a Park Volunteer who stays onsite in his caravan.... More

The national park and lake is wonderful to visitor in October/November when all the bird life is about with their youngsters. Very cute to watch. Great place to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy before or after visiting the guided tour of Crystal Cave. Whilst not as impressive as the caves in NSW and Victoria, is definitely a nice day... More

Planned for this first stop on our way from Perth to Bunbury. Was hoping to see some kangaroo and Koala, and planning to have a nice picnic while the kids run around. Well, we did saw 1 koala, no kangaroo and lots of flies. Understand that it was the season of it. But still disappointed as this info is not... More

Hi Blarz11 many thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sorry to hear the flies contributed to a disappointing visit to Yanchep National Park. As Summer approaches the winds bring the flies in and unfortunately they can be bothersome across the entire south west region. Thankfully this is seasonal as you suggest. We do find... More

This is a good healthy day out kind of place. It's nice because it has wilderness areas like most national parks but also manicured but beautiful parts like where you can have a picnic with children by the lake etc. Ample toilet facilities, koala sanctuary, lovely visitors centre. Also cave and Aboriginal tours but we didn't do either of these.... More

Hi there, sorry to hear your visit to the local area was disappointing. It sounds like you may have spent the day at the Two Rocks Marina. Did you visit us here in Yanchep National Park? If you did and have feedback we'd love an opportunity to address it. If not perhaps your review may be in the wrong spot.... More
