Family Day Adventure | Ziplines, Ropes & Wildlife | Western Australia
Sat 22 Aug | Yanchep National Park | Suitable for kids 4 to adults
A family day adventure in Yanchep:
A new and exciting way of exploring nature on a birds eye rope and zipline family day adventure in Yanchep National Park with 7 fun and challenging levels
The tree adventure is quite possibly the best way for a family to enjoy the magnificent surroundings and bush landscape at Yanchep. The trees adventure offers a series of challenging obstacle courses that let you climb and zipline through the trees. Sessions go for two hours and there are courses to challenge from age 4 and even adult, so parents can join their kids on the obstacle courses.
We encourage you to stay on during the afternoon or the whole weekend – there is enough to keep you busy. We camp overnight at the campgrounds and we encourage families to do the same and enjoy sitting around the campfire, toasting marsh mellows, drinking hot choc or something a little stronger for the adults. The winter nights are generally very still and the night sky so clear and full of stars, very easy to think you are miles and miles from the city.

Koalas: Koalas are not native animals to Western Australia as they only inhabit the eastern coast. However, Yanchep National Park is one of the best places in Perth to see these intriguing marsupials. The 140m long koala boardwalk gives you close up views of the nine koalas at the enclosure. There’s also a free koala talk each day at 3.15 pm where you can find out more about koalas.
Crystal Cave: Tours of the Crystal Cave are held every day and are suitable for children. The tour takes approximately 45 minutes and is a great way to learn more about the geology and formation of the cave. Prices for the Crystal Cave Tour are $15 for adults and$7.50 for children.
