Yanchep, Australia, WA 6035

The Basics

It's possible to take in the highlights of Yanchep National Park on a day trip from Perth. Most tours include a visit to one of the park’s stunning natural caves, the most famous of which are the Cabaret Cave and the Crystal Cave, named for its majestic stalactites and stalagmites. Additional attractions include the Wangi Mia Meeting Place, where visitors can learn about and experience the park’s Aboriginal heritage; the wetland areas around Loch McNess, Yonderup Lake, and Wilgarup Lake; and the 9-hole bush golf course.

Many day tours combine a visit to Yanchep with nearby natural wonders, such as the Lancelin Sand Dunes (a popular spot for sandboarding) and Scarborough Beach, or the Nambung National Park, home to the Pinnacles.

Pinnacles Day Trip from Perth Including Yanchep National Park
Wonderful day. Vicki was my guide. She was brilliant we had a great day together. I was the only client so felt very special. She thought of everything. Tea and pastries on a beautiful deserted beach a lovely touch. The Pinnacles were amazing and Vicki was very informative. Lunch was very good. Restaurant was quiet and the food good. Thoroughly enjoyed my day and would recommend it. Thankyou.

Pinnacles Day Trip from Perth Including Yanchep National Park
Visited Perth as a solo traveler and booked this tour to see the beautiful pinnacles desert and Yanchep national park. Loved it so much, my tour guide Vicki was so knowledgeable and nice. The whole tour lasted about 8 hrs but it was totally worth it. Would definitely tour with her if I happen to come back. Thanks and warm regards, Karan

Pinnacles Day Trip from Perth Including Yanchep National Park
Vicki was a wonderful guide, and we enjoyed our trip with her. We loved that she was very flexible, and willing to work with our schedule when a few things came up that delayed our morning departure.

Pinnacles Day Trip from Perth Including Yanchep National Park
What a wonderful day, Vikki is such good fun and if you like cake and scones all home made, you will love this tour, a lovely drive up to the Pinnacles, an amazing sight, as this is such a small group (only 2 of us) we had lots of time to explore. Stoped for a very good lunch at lovely Hotel with wonderful views along the coast, we had an amazing drive over the sand dunes. On the way back we stoped to see Koala’s Great trip, great fun can definitely recommend this company. Thank you Vikki for a fabulous day
