    Notice - Walk Trail Yanchep National Park
    3 more images

    This walk is ideal for anyone who would like a "taste" of the national park, not too hard but good enough to see and appreciate the local habitat. Ideal for families with children.

    The coastal woodlands support a diverse range of native trees including banksia, tuart, marri, stunted jarrah, sheok etc. Whilst on this walk you most likely will see native birds and parrots, lizards and other small animals. Kangaroos may be in the area seeking shade during the heat of the day.

    Cockatoo Walk Trail 17.5 km

    by Mikebb Updated Mar 3, 2009

    Notice Cockatoo Walk Trail.

    This trail covers 17.5km which is 16km more than I can manage. The February day we visited the trail was closed due to the danger of bushfires in the district.

    The trail follows the endangered Carnaby's black cockatoo on its journeyinto the Gnangara Park. Experience a varietyof landscapes and impressive views from the Ridges campsite.

    The area is home to the black-gloved wallaby and quenda (bandicoots).

    Ideal for seasoned hikers and fit people.

    Quinns Rock is just south of Yanchep and has a number of parks which include walking tracks. A new community has been developing there in the form of Mindarie Keys. There is a resort hotel, boardwalk and cafes as well of course, all the beach activities – fishing, surfing, scuba diving, boating and swimming. There is also the interest of many shipwreck sites located off the coast. Another attraction in the area is the Coopers Lime Kilns.

    With the gardens there is are two hole mini golf courses. Based on the Euorpean professional standard, each track is approximately 12 metres long by 900mm wide and is uniquely shaped with its ramps and obstacles. Billiard Golf opened in 1998 and is a game of deflection. The idea of the game is to deflect the ball from the track edge into the hole like billiards or pool. Allow plenty of time to play both types. To play golf, is included in the price of your entry ticket to the gardens.

    The Botanical Golf Gardens are Australia’s largest minigolf complex. The beautiful botanical gardens provide something for everyone. The gardens change with the seasons as do the smells. There is a mix of mixture of palms evergreen and deciduous trees. ponds waterfalls and idyllic streams, a rainforest as well as colourful plants and shrubs.
