Head to the coast and soak up the sun, or go inland
and meander through bushland and vineyards.
Make the most of the area’s
national parks and 4WD tracks.
YANCHEP NATIONAL PARK | Challenge
yourself on one of the nine walk trails, get the kids
spotting kangaroos, have a late afternoon tea, or
visit Crystal Cave in this 3000ha national park.
MOORE RIVER NATIONAL PARK |
Untouched bushland, thickets of eucalypts,
and plenty of banksia heathland make this a
must-see for wildflower lovers.
LANCELIN SAND DUNES | The
unregulated dunes are tailor-made for adrenaline
junkies. Head here for sandboarding, dune
buggying, trail biking and motorbiking.
LEDGE POINT | The small area between
Ledge Point Road and Lancelin Road is perfect
terrain for motorbikes.

stock tracks run beside Moore River National Park,
which is ideal for 4WDing.
4WDs are best for these trips – we all know

region’s climate and soil levels differ from
the rest of the State, producing amazing
shiraz, chardonnay and viognier.
Enjoy the watersports
With a mix of both flat water and waves,
there is plenty of watersports action to
soak up in Lancelin. With winds frequently
reaching 25 knots or more, make sure your
sails are strong as you take to the water. The
most popular sports are windsurfing and
kitesurfing, with paddleboarding gaining a
large following, too.

from September to November, as the
giant humpbacks make their way along the
continental shelf towards the rich feeding
grounds in Antarctica. Boat charters depart
from either Mindarie Keys or Two Rocks.
One of WA’s most family-friendly
regions, there’s plenty here to
keep the kids amused.

a mini golf course.
