Perth's Natural and Cultural Meeting Place Yanchep National Park, just 51 km north of Perth, offers visitors an array of recreational tourism and conservation experiences, right on the city's doorstep. The 2842 hectare park is one of the State's oldest national parks and is steeped in Aboriginal and European cultural heritage. The park also protects some fascinating caves that are open to the public, one of Western Australia's largest koala colonies, a stunning array of wildflowers and the old world charm of Tudor-style buildings and gardens. Visitors to Yanchep National Park can interact with Indigenous staff, participate in cultural activities and learn about the diversity of traditional Aboriginal culture. The national park environment provides a unique setting for cultural activities and specially built performance areas have been developed to accommodate Indigenous tours. 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 honeyeaters, to name a few. Endangered Carnaby's black cockatoos are a spectacular daily sight. Western grey kangaroos are commonly seen on the walk trails or grazing on the picnic lawns and golf course.
