Yanchep is an outer coastal suburb of Perth,
Western Australia, 56 kilometres north of Perth's
central business district. Yanchep is part of the City
of Wanneroo local government area. Originally
Yanchep was a small crayfishing settlement.
Today the primary appeal of the Yanchep area is
the remarkable Yanchep National Park - a haven
for Grey Western Kangaroos, superb displays of
wildflowers during the spring, and broad, well
maintained parklands beside lakes which are ideal
for picnics, parties and barbecues.
