Yanchep National Park

Yanchep National Park is a large park (2,799 hectares), situated 48 km north of Perth, on the Wanneroo – Lancelin Road.   The Park contains seven vegetation communities, four wetlands that have had little change, and over 1000 caves, all of which provide a wide range of habitats for a variety of animals.

The northern and western ends of the Park keep the major conservation values and show a range of landscape, from tall Tuart forest to lush wetland vegetation, and mixed Banksia and Kwongan heath on the uplands. Wildflowers are prolific in Spring and early Summer.

Nestled in Tuart and Banksia woodlands, the park is home to many different water and bush birds including grebes, swans, pelicans, cormorants, egrets, kingfishers, parrots, wrens and honey eaters. Western Grey kangaroos are commonly seen on the walk trails or grazing on the lawns and golf course.

Yanchep National Park provides an important example of the Swan Coastal Plain habitat types; more so given the loss of much of the natural environment of the Swan Coastal Plain to urbanization and agriculture.  Many other wetlands on the Swan Coastal Plain have either been filled in, or modified and subjected to pressures such as pollutants and clearing.
