  • Bush Walking at Yanchep National Park

    If you love a bush walk that is not too strenuous (believe me I wouldn't do it if it was ;o) but still feels like an adventure through the good old Australian scrub, then Yanchep National Park is the place to visit.The walk goes right around this lake and takes about 40 minutes to complete at a nice easy pace.

  • Have a roadie for the trip

    As our good old Aussie TV Mate Russell Coit always says, 'Mate, you've gotta have a roadie for the trip!' (Or one for the road).So on Monday morning after the big Perth vt meet hubby and I, Adelaidean and her hubby Bob, and allikat all piled into the car with a roadie for the trip to Yanchep.

  • Koalas Are Nocturnal

    During the heat of the day the Koalas usually find a high branch in a gum tree and dose through the day. The day we visited Yanchep we saw some moving, however it was to get to a higher branch where they feel they will be safer.They feed at night when it is cooler and this also helps safeguard them from predators such as eagles and dingos.

    more
  • Native Grass Trees

    These are very good looking native plants, now called Grass Trees but formerly called Blackboys as when they grow larger they show a large black trunk. When people are lost they sometimes use these trees for shelter as you can climb under the thick cover of leaves and shelter from the sun or rain.

  • Yanchep Inn, Heritaged Listed

    When I think of Yanchep I think of Koalas and the Yanchep Inn. The Inn is a beautiful old building constructed in 1936 and presently still operating as an inn with accommodation. Do not walk past this building, go inside and admire the fine timber craftmanship, the dining room is a fine example of 1930's furniture.The Inn is an ideal place to stop...

  • Fish in Chips in the Two Rocks Strip...

    The restaturant is good, the ambience if fine. It's just that they are charging different prices for take-aways and dining in. it is relatively more expensive to dine in. So if you are thinking of saving some money, its better to take away and eat at the beach. Otherwise, paying more is quite worth it as you are paying both the views and the fresh...
