Perth is known to be one of the most isolated cities in the world. It takes roughly 5 hours to fly to the Eastern Side and most West Australians tend to take the Bali vacation than a vacation on native soil.
Although it is isolated, Western Australia, is by far one of the most beautiful, native and wild environments you can visit. Many beaches have pure white sand with shallow turquoise waters that make swimming extremely enjoyable. Some beaches also allow 4×4 vehicles, which is generally one of the more common modes of transport used in this area.
But for the purpose of this article, we are going to limit ‘North Of Perth’ to the Cervantes Region. Notably, going north of Cervantes means you will embark and a true ‘Outback’ Adventure and it is a trip that will require a little planning. (call it personal experience)
Yanchep can be found about 45 minutes north of Perth. It is one of the most under estimated locations within the northern suburbs. Apart from a $12.00 entrance fee (car visit fee), one can basically see some amazing places for next to nothing.
Things that you can expect to experience for free is the walkway by the lake, Koala Park, Hiking Trails and Picnic area. Other things that will cost is experiences such as the Crystal Cave, the Yanchep Golf Course and other forms of entertainment held in the park area.
The Pinnacles at Nambung National Park
This would fall on the opposite side of the spectrum in regards to visitation. The Nambung National Park is a huge tourist attraction offering guest the opportunity to see yellow stone formations that are placed sporadically around the park area.
It is believed that these formations were the result of the sea receding about 25,000 year ago leaving behind shell formations. Over time, wind and elements eroded the exterior, leaving behind these stone line formations.
Whiteman Park can be found near Ellenbrook suburbs. It consist of 4000 hectares of natural landscape with a range of free to fee-based activities.
The last time I visited Whiteman Park was to watch the Western Australia Birds of Prey Flight Display. It was, by far, one of the most amazing experiences I have had with the opportunity to hold a Wedge Tail Eagle.
While the WA Birds of Prey do not offer frequent flight displays, one can enjoy a range of similar wildlife encounters at the Caversham Wildlife Center.
Apart from this, there are a range of hiking trails, playgrounds, picnic areas and other amenities to make a trip to this park ‘outstanding’.
