The Ghost House Trail offers some of the best wilderness walking in Yanchep National Park.  It takes us on a natural and cultural journey around the park's most pristine wetlands, namely Loch McNess and North Lake.  The trail starts on the western side of Loch McNess on the Yanjidi Trail and finishes at the North Oval Car Park near Cabaret Cave.  As we walk, we pass through grand examples of Tuart forest, banksia woodlands and coastal heath.  The rocky limestone outcrops are a special feature along the trail and provide scenic vistas of the North Lake and it's surrounds.    

 

After the walk, you may choose to stay on and enjoy a cuppa or even a late lunch at the Tea Rooms, enjoy a coldy in the beer garden at the Yanchep Inn, or perhaps explore the National Park some more, .... it's beautiful and has so much to offer the visitor.

 

Distance:  Approx 12.4km in total (estimated 5 hours including rest breaks & morning tea)

Terrain:  Fairly flat bush track, sandy and rocky in some places however easy to navigate - moderate level of fitness required. 

Meeting Point:   Out the front of McNess House Visitor's Centre, inside the Yanchep National Park.

Well organized, informative walk. Amazing vegetation along the Tanglewood track with beautiful natives and lots of bird life. It's a lot less busy track

The coastal walk was busy even though it was a cloudy day but we still had beautiful views over the coastline. At the end of the walk we had a quick dip to cool off. The currents were strong but the local life savers kept a keen eye on us. It was a really enjoyable walk and fun day.
