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:  Total of approx 11km in total - We walk approx 1km on the Yanjidi Trail, before reaching the trail head of the 9.2km hike on the Ghost House Trail (estimated 5 hours including rest breaks)

 

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.  On entry into the park, you will need to stop at the Entry Station and advise the Ranger that you are with the Adventurous Women Group - they will then let you proceed into the park without payment, as your entry fee has been paid in advance by us.
