We live just a short 15 minute drive from Yanchep National Park therefore we visit often.

If you like doing off the beaten path stuff then you should definately put this on your list of things to do whilst visiting Perth.

Just a short 1hr drive from Perth and you will feel like you are amongst some of Perth's best flora and fauna. And that is just a couple of things that Yanchep National Park has to offer. There are caves, shows, art & craft gift shop, Devonshire Cafe and a big old Inn with a beer garden to relax in.

There is accommodation too, so you can stay overnight if you really want to soak up the atmosphere.

The Koalas at Yanchep National Park are well looked after.

It's a place where you can get up close to Koalas in their natural environment, no cages, just plenty of Eucalypt trees for them to hang out in.

Isn't he cute!! :o)

Australian wildflowers are in abundance here. It doesn't matter what time of year you visit, you will always find plenty of unique Australian flora that will totally amaze you.

Just make sure you have ample space on your camera and be prepared to walk slowely and keep on the lookout.
