Yanchep National Park
Set in 2 842ha of bushland you can discover wetlands, woodlands and caves and experience the rich cultural heritage.

Bushwalkers can explore the natural surroundings and discover the homes of many Australian native animals such as the Western Grey Kangaroo, the tiny honey possum, bandicoots, reptiles and many friendly water birds.

There are limestone caves, Tudor style Buildings, row boats for hire, shady picnic and barbecue areas and a colony of koalas. All of these attractions are located near the lake of Loch McNess.

During school holidays, rangers co-ordinate special events and activities, to discover the many aspects of the Park such as adventure caving, Koala Kapers and a taste of Yanchep.

Watheroo National Park
Situated 50km north of Moora the park is accessible from all directions by good gravel roads. The Park is 44 324ha of sandplain country with some rare flora. It is also the site of Jingamia Cave.

Nambung National Park
The Pinnacles which are located in this Park, are undoubtedly one of the State's most unique and interesting attractions. Thousands of limestone pillars, up to 4m tall, rise out of a stark landscape of yellow sand. The Pinnacles are located approximately 29km south of Cervantes and 2km inland from the beach. Dutch sailors saw these limestone outcrops from the sea and thought they were the remains of an ancient city. Half-day tours from the Shell Service Station and full day tours from Perth are available. If driving, a charge of $5.00 per car or $2.00 per bus passenger is payable to enter the National Park. A one-way loop drive leads through The Pinnacles and is suitable for conventional vehicles, however, trailers and caravans should be left in Cervantes. A 500m loop walk trail starts opposite the carpark.

Fishing is popular at nearby Hangover Bay and Kangaroo Point and both have visitor facilities.

Stockyard Gully National Park
Named after one of the stopping places used by drovers on the North Road Stock Route located north east of Lurien via Cockleshell Gully Road. The National Park is accessible by 4 wheel drive vehicle only.
Guided tours can be arranged by contacting Jurien Bus Charter and Tours.
