I paid about $200 for the tree climb with my family and had to pay another $17 to drive in. The tree climb in Dwellingup is so much better.

Also there is only 1 place to eat in the whole park"The Inn" and it's a 30 minute wait just for hot chips to go when it's not busy. It was 3:15pm

We only had a brief stop at Yanchep NP as we were on our way from Perth to the Pinnacles, but we liked what we saw and have put it on our list of places to revisit when we have more time.

We paid an entrance fee for our car and then parked up near the Kola boardwalk. As they are not native to Western Australia, Yanchep has been home to a colony of koalas since 1938. We saw 3 koalas in the trees - one sleeping, but two moving which was nice.

We then walked around the grounds outside the Visitors Centre and saw kangaroos bouncing through the trees and lots of Kookaburra's flying around. It was a lovely place for a quick driving break and called out for further exploration.

I had read a few reviews saying that this was a good place to visit on a journey up North from Perth. That does not do the park justice.
It is a destination in itself.
Kangaroos, koalas and so many different types of birds. A good selection of walks, a cave to visit, a coffee shop and a pub.
Highly recommended

Came up here for an afternoon out. Has a very nice bar/restaurant serving good simple foods. The park had a large lake but the water level is down a meter and it is choking up with vegetation. However that does provide nesting sites for pelicans , ducks and ibis. Nice to see. Although there is a good population of kangaroos we only saw one. They have a fenced wood and walkway around a koala enclosure. Koalas are not native to W.A. so they are just to attract visitors. They were of course asleep. There is plenty of wildlife to see here though. Back to the bar where I discovered that the main food of Magpies and Rosellas is chips. Nice place for a lazy day out and western Australia wildlife spotting.

A beautiful park near Perth and a bird lovers' paradise. An easy walk around a lake and a place to see Koalas on the west coast

When I think of a National Park, I think of huge areas of wilderness. Yanchep NP is a real park. It could have been located in the middle of a town. There are some walks, but it felt all very urbanized. The staff was very friendly, at the gate and at the information centre. We spotted ONE koala in the koala enclosure. And the cave was unfortunately closed. When you like to go for a picnic in a park, this is the place to be. If you expect wilderness and a lot of animals, consider another NP.

Found 3 koalas… but no one at the park entry let us know the crystal cave was closed! If at the entry we were informed about it then we would have made a u-turn and not paid the fee to go in.

Lovely National park with lots of kangaroos 🦘 but we only saw one koala. We just stopped here for half an hour as we were on a coach heading out to the pinnacles. Would love to have spent more time here and have gone bush walking. Toilet facilities available, also a cafe.

Don't bother if you go in the summer. Pay for the privilege of seeing very little. We saw three sleeping Koallas way in the trees. The Gloucester Lodge Museum is empty and closed, yet featured on many websites, The visitor's centre is very pokey, with little information, just the standard tourist nick-nacks to purchase. Whiteman Park is far superior, with many things to see and do, and it's free. It's also far closer to central Perth. The one reading attraction was the Yancheop Inn, an oldy world feature from the 1930s.
